LOSING MY MIND An Intimate Look at Life with Alzheimer's

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Cotter Smith, Linda Emond, Thomas DeBaggio

Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2002

In a fabulous production of a groundbreaking book, the author shares his personal reflections on living with a fatal neurological disease. It's a grueling process--being diagnosed, dealing with others' reactions, and feeling what you feel when a failing memory makes the symbols and connections of ordinary life unavailable for use. The author's observations and reactions, read here by DeBaggio and Cotter Smith, capture his experiences without creating distance between victim and listener. The author's authenticity is moving and shows the respect he obviously feels for himself. Tucked within this powerful memoir is concise information, read by Linda Emond, about the biological and social realities of this terrible disease. A must-hear for all patients and families who want to stay informed. T.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 02]
