The Choice, Nicholas Sparks
Travis Parker has everything a man could want: a good job, loyal friends, even a waterfront home in small town North Carolina. In full pursuit of the good life - boating, swimming, and regular barbecues with his close buddies, he holds the vague conviction that a serious relationship with a woman would only cramp his style. That is until Gabby Holland moves in next door.
Despite his attempts to be neighborly, the attractive redhead seems to have a grudge against him, and the presence of her long-time boyfriend doesn't help. Still, Travis can't stop trying to ingratiate himself with his new neighbor, and his persistent efforts lead them both to the doorstep of a journey that neither could have foreseen. Spanning the eventful years of young love, marriage and family, The Choice ultimately confronts us with the most heart-wrenching question of all: How far should you go to keep the hope of love alive? (from the older bookshelves) Nicholas Sparks is a favorite of mine!
And, The Myth of Alzheimer's, What You Aren't Being Told About Today's Most Dreaded Diagnosis, Peter J. Whitehouse, MD, PhD, with Daniel George, M.Sc. -
Dr. Peter Whitehouse will transform the way we think about Alzheimer's disease. In this groundbreaking book, he challenges the conventional wisdom about memory loss and cognitive impairment, questions the current treatment for Alzheimer's disease (AD), and provides a new approach to understanding and rethinking everything we thought we knew about brain aging.
The Myth of Alzheimer's provides some welcome answers to questions that millions of people diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, and their families are eager to know:
• Is Alzheimer's a disease?
• What is the difference between a naturally aging brain and an Alzheimer's brain?
• How effective are the current drugs for AD? Are they worth the money we spend on them? and many more questions too numerous to mention.
Backed up by research, full of practical advice and information, and infused with hope, The Myth of Alzheimer's will liberate us from this crippling label, teach us how to best approach memory loss, and explain how to stave off some of the normal effects of aging.
