An enjoyable, in many ways uplifting story told in a thoughtful way. Like Still Alice it gives a view of a not completely understood change condition from an unusual perspective.

When Wendy Mitchell was diagnosed with dementia at the age of 58, she had to say good-bye to the woman she once was. Her career in the NHS, her ability to drive, cook and run - the various shades of her independence - were suddenly gone. Yet Wendy was determined not to give in. She was, and still is, propelled by a need to live in the moment, never knowing which version of herself might surface tomorrow.

If you are,or know someone who is living with dementia I strongly this book as a great and at times touching introduction. To date I had struggled to pick up any of the reference guides and material, but this was different, I could not put it down. Made me realise many LIVE with dementia a long time before diagnosis and can LIVE with dementia a long time afterwards!

Do you ever find yourself wishing you could save time by reading faster? Or wish that you could learn more by increasing your reading speed? The author of this program felt exactly the same way just a few short months ago: "My reading speed was really holding me back. I knew I had to do something. That's when I started to read everything I could on the subject of speed reading. What I discovered completely changed my life!"
