Free Fridays Recommends
Each week, we ask our featured author to recommend a book or author that you may want to check out. Since authors are such passionate readers themselves, we thought you might like to find out what they love to read, too! Here’s what Michael recommends:
As the baby boomers retire, a huge burden is about to be unleashed on the health care system of the United States. Millions of people will suffer from Alzheimer's. Having seen some relatives endure such challenges, I read the book Still Alice by Lisa Genova.
The author skillfully shows how the caretakers and friends and family were affected in handling the situation. Lisa's story helped open my eyes about this dreaded disease and how as a nation we must be prepared to handle the onslaught in the next couple of decades.
Ms. Genova told me: "I always believed in the book, that there was an audience who needed it. We know the facts and statistics and even the science. While that info is important, it tends to stay intellectual, in our heads. The people who love the 5.4 million Americans with AD are in need of something more. We need to understand the humanity behind those numbers and the science. We need to understand AD with our hearts."
