Very Useful

I purchased this book because my father and father in law are going through this nightmare, and I wanted to understand it more, I am into the first couple of chapters, and I am seeing everything about both, my father-in-law is 84 and my dad 75, this really opened my eyes up so far, I am looking forward to listening to the rest.
