The American physician and researcher Dale E. Bredesen's book The end of Alzheimer's from 2017 is probably the most important summary about this disease. It shows that there is justified hope of full recovery in early stages to Alzheimer's disease. For those who have already developed the disease, there is hope of significant improvement. The book is a well-written, popular scientific overview of the important approach Bredesen and his research group has worked with for the last few years. It should be read by all health conscious people, especially those who have passed 40 years, and professional neurologists and researchers will also benefit from it.
