    I just finished reading this book. Amazing journal of a relatively young man's diagnosis with Alzheimer's disease. Fighting to keep control of his day to day life while talking about how it takes away his life day by day. The loss of independence, not being able to do the simplest of tasks - his wife is a saint for taking care of him. -- I found this book because of Rickey Medlocke. Did a search on Amazon for him and his name was brought up in this book. Rickey and Stacy were Paul's neighbors and friends. -- This book hits home as my Dad had Parkinson's and each time I would see him he would be worse than the last. I read this book thinking of my Mom and Dad. -- There are laughs in the book and, well a lot of tears. Paul's wife Jill is an amazing person - they both are amazing. If you like to read and are looking for a new book - get it, read it and be reminded that the things you take for granted may not be there forever.

    This is a review written with great sorrow for anyone who faces Alzheimer's. Paul D. Newman has penned a deeply moving memoir with the help of his beloved wife, Jill, about his journey into Alzheimer's. The book is written with grace and skill so the reader can enter into his reality but not be devastated while reading it. Paul is 53 years old and his wife is 49. Theirs is a contemporary story about a young, modern, loving couple. What can be said when your world is turned upside down by a cruel twist of fate? Read this story. Send it to family members and friends who face this monstrous disease, so they know they do not stand alone. If ever there was an agony in the garden, this is it.

    This story is heartbreaking in how it captures the anguish of Alzheimer's with excruciating detail. Yet, at the same time, I felt uplifted by the gentle spirit of the author who within these pages, is the very embodiment of courage. He graces the unbearable with humor, honesty, and self-deprecation. This is not a world that one chooses to enter, but once within the book's covers, the reader finds a sense of meaning, which the author somehow manages to convey, using the triumphant eternal virtues of hope and love. This story breaks the heart, but not the spirit. It leaves us far more human than we dreamed of being before.

    Paul Newman devoted his life to seniors and working with the elderly. I have known Paul for many years and my heart breaks for him and his wife. My prayers are with him. Love you Paul.
