    Has anyone mentioned The Emotional Journey of the Alzheimer Family? You can find that on Amazon. I saw it in the bookstore the other day, and while I was not tempted to relive that journey just now, it looked like a really good relatable read.

    Keely,
    Thank you for recommending Tom Zuba's book "Permission to Mourn - A New Way to Do Grief". I ordered it, and immediately read the whole book. It was exactly what I needed to hear (or read).

    I just re-read Still Alice. Now that I am in the after my thoughts about the book are very different than the first time. Should be must reading for the families coping with early onset disease.

    Not dementia related but if anyone has a dog suffering from cancer, there is an excellent book "Dog Cancer Survival Guide" by Dr. Damien Dressler, DVM. My little guys has lymphoma. I wish I had know about this excellent reference much sooner.

    Edward Charette, I read two of the books you read and enjoyed both, each quite different. I haven't heard of Fifth Mountain but will be sure to look for it.

    My current recommendation is Kate Atkinson's " A God in Ruins."
