Review

A landmark book (Financial Times)

Revelatory (Guardian)

Usually the experience of someone living with dementia is lost; known only partially even to their loved ones. The miracle of this work is that it managed to capture the experience, and hold it up for the rest of us to see (Telegraph)

Remarkable ... Mitchell gives such clear-eyed insight that anyone who knows a person living with dementia should read this book (Siobhan Murphy The Times)

The world could do with more Wendy Mitchells ... This is a book from which we can all learn (Jackie Annesley Sunday Times)

A lucid, candid and gallant portrayal of what the early stages of dementia feel like ... This memoir, with its humour and its sense of resilience, demonstrates how the diagnosis of dementia is not a clear line that a person crosses; they are no different than they were the day before (Nicci Gerrard Observer)

A brave and illuminating journey inside the mind, heart, and life of young-onset Alzheimer's disease (Lisa Genova, neuroscientist and author of 'Still Alice')

With humour, truth and grace, this book [gives] a unique insight into what it's like to live with Alzheimer's (Spectator)

I am so impressed with Wendy Mitchell's attitude and ability to explain her experience - she is both an inspiration and a guide. I think this book will be extremely helpful to people who are trying to come to terms with dementia, in their own lives, or the lives of their family and friends (Michael Palin)

An absolutely compelling account of life with dementia ... A testimony to human spirit and ingenuity (Jan R Oyebode, Professor of Dementia Care, University of Bradford)

Book Description

Dementia is the biggest killer in Britain, yet we know so little about it - this book is the first to explain what is happening from the inside
