My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow!! What an appropriate book for this time in my life!! I entered a giveaway to win this book and I kept my finger crossed, hoping to be selected. What a joy when I found out I was one of the winners. Let me explained why this book was so important to me. My mom has been diagnosed with Alzheimer two years ago. When I found out I was devastated. My mom's dad (my grandfather) died of complications of dementia and suffered from Alzheimer too. I have horrible memories of his last days and I could only imagine my mother going through the same and it scared me. There is no cure for Alzheimer... yet!!

When I read the book synopsis, I knew I needed to read it. I want to know what I can do to reduce my chance to get Alzheimer. Let's be honest here.. my grand-father had it, my mom has it... I don't want to be an ostrich and ignore the risks by putting my head in the sand. I want to educate myself and see what I can do to avoid it. Well... this book was a great help. I love that the author understands what I am facing as she is also at risks. Her grand-mother died of Alzheimer.

Tiffany Chow helped me planned better and be more responsible for my health. Her book has the right amount of clinical jargon without being overwhelming. The testimonies are touching and encouraging and were delivered with raw truth.

Dr. Chow works in Toronto, just north of where I live. I am seriously thinking to contact her and enroll on any of her studies (if there are any). It's personal and I want to help find a cure if I can.

This book will be on the shelves of your local bookstore this month. If you are in the same situation as me or would like to know more about what you can do to reduce your risks to get dementia or Alzheimer... get the book!!! You won't regret it!
