One of the most important population studies ever conducted on Alzheimer's involving several hundred women with very similar lives, diet and education. The sisters agreed to undergo cognitive tests as they aged, and to donate their brains for postmortem. I wish I had read this book when my mother was ill with dementia. It would have been a tremendous help to understand her needs. The book also contains some hopeful findings on how to avoid or delay brain deterioration. Avoidance and treatment of mini-strokes (transient ischemic attacks) seems to be crucial.

I read this for my statistics course and it was actually a pretty good read. It really gave insight to the bad and the good involving research. It was especially interesting how David Snowdon introduced and explored the importance of the sociology of aging not only the change involving physical health.
