    Disappointing
    As a member of the medical profession and as someone who has a family member with dementia, I looked forward to reading this book. I was sorely disappointed. Ms. Halpern appeared to be unable to decide whether she was telling her own story or giving a synopsis of current research in the area of memory loss. The title leads one to believe that this is a light read -- reader beware! Details of memory research are technical and boring. Ms. Halpern should stick to 1000 word articles for magazines as she was clearly out of her depth in writing this work. I really wanted to like the book, but it was an exercise in futility.
