67 of 68 people found the following review helpful By Mary G. Longorio on Jan. 19 2009
Format: Paperback
Alice Howland taught cognitive psychology courses at Harvard for over twenty-five years. Alice and her husband, John authored Molecules to Mind, she published papers, and lectured around the world. Her three children were grown and on their own paths (not that she was very happy about Lydia's choice of acting, but she hadn't given up trying to influence her to go back to real school). Her son Tom was doing well in school, daughter Annie and her husband, Charlie are attorneys trying to conceive a first grandchild.

Facing a busy schedule and travel and everyday stress, Alice isn't concerned when she begins to forget little things, where the keys are, names of acquaintances or a momentary sense of disorientation. After all she is fifty and that is part of menopause. .

A trip to her family doctor to get some suggestions for cognitive memory reinforcement and to see if medication is available does not help. Alice is stunned to learn that she has Early Onset Alzheimer's and that there is not very much available for treatment. Telling her husband and children is even harder to face. Eventually she has to face the loss of her teaching and life's work.

"Still Alice" is Alice's voice as she struggles with the advancement of Alzheimer's. As the disease advances, she is living more in the now, and often hurt by her interpretations of family member's words and actions. She reacts with anger and confusion as her world shifts and becomes more unfamiliar and frightening. Her family also has to deal with their emotions. The realization that their funny, loving accomplished mother and wife is slowly disappearing before their eyes are devastating, and they each react differently.

This book should be manditory reading for anyone who has a senior family member who has, or is developing Alzheimer's disease. It is a strong, powerful book that shows the pure hell that people with this horrible disease are going through. I read the whole book in a day...Just could not put it down.

An uplifting book about Alzheimer's disease. A recommended read for everyone. It's fiction but well researched and well written. Once I started to read it, I couldn't put it down. Plan to read more books by this same author.

I read this book while my mom was in her last stages of Alzheimers/dementia. It was a real eye opener for me to think about the fear that she must have felt feeling things slip away from her and out of her control. Everyone should read this book at one point or another...

Depressing but amazing. Great story about a Harvard Prof with immense professional success who wakes up one day and notices her memory is escaping her.

I could not put this book down - it was inspirational as well as informative on the devastating effects of Alzeimer's.
