The Alzheimer's label too often generates fear, paranoia, and anxiety. It obscures the potential for vitality and wisdom that still exists in the graying years. By taking a closer look at what Alzheimer's is and isn't, Whitehouse offers hope to families as well as to those who suffer from a decline in their cognitive abilities.

Listener Opinions

    " Interesting book. Whitehouse is very full of himself, but he includes some good information. I especially liked the sections on preventive care. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane | 8/13/2013

    " Very interesting ideas relating to brain aging. To sum it up: mind over matter. If one and one's doctor has a positive attitude towards brain aging it can not be a death sentence. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joyce | 7/21/2013

    " The information is current, but the author's voice is too arrogant for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurele | 8/6/2012

    " There is some good information here, despite the puzzling title. Much repetition, but I suppose that's needed in memory loss. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 6/24/2012

    " I heard the author speak at the U of M. This book provides a controversial new way to think about brain aging. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Natalie | 5/14/2012

    " I agree with most of his basic points -- but didn't really get why he kept trumpeting his point of view as so radical and new. Yes, maybe 15 years ago. It's an OK book but it wasn't what I was hoping for. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mike | 2/5/2012

    " A very interesting and positive approach to brain aging, except for too much on the science and effects of prescriptions. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 James Tanner | 5/21/2011

    " Should be read by anyone concerned about Alzheimers "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sally | 4/21/2011

    " A leading clinician and researcher makes a convincing case that Alzheimer's is a flawed, counter-productive diagnosis, a disease without a single cause or likely cure. He seeks to help people live in a preventative way and then deal with the challenges of an aging brain in life-affirming ways. "
