It's a great book to catch the recent progress of research and clinical trials on Alzheimer disease, not only for layman but also for experts. It covers most of the views from doctors, scientists to patients and related families. It's like reading a detective story lasting years, and is not yet ended.

Author Margaret Lock asks us to rethink AD in three bold ways.
First, we should focus more on how social and environmental factors, particularly poverty and social inequality, affect cognitive health. Second, care must be a research priority so that the investments poured into high-tech screening and treatment are shared with funding public health programs that improve the lives of older people.
For people diagnosed with AD or the risk of it, their world is infused with the intense stigma, shame, isolation, and burden usually reserved for our most troublesome citizens. A main theme of the book is that since the death in of Auguste Deter, considered the first AD patient, the mystery of AD has been about matching [End Page ] hypotheses to evidence. The current hypothesis is that amyloid buildup is correlated with neurodegeneration; hence identifying amyloid deposits is a key component of prevention strategy, especially biomarker testing.
As well, since the APOE gene has been associated with inherited AD, genetic screening is another aspect of prevention strategy.
On the evidence side, however, the standard medical model is confounded by cases of people with amyloid buildup and neurodegeneration in their brains, yet who exhibit no symptoms of AD or dementia. There are also people who have tested positive for proven risk of AD or who have been diagnosed with a predementia stage such as mild cognitive impairment, but do not progress to develop AD.
