""What If It's Not Alzheimer's? is a must-read for anyone dealing with a diagnosis of dementia, especially FTD. The practical information, the resources, and the depth of understanding reflected in this book provide a comprehensive reference to guide and accompany a person throughout the journey." -Susan L.-J. Dickinson, MS, CGC, executive director of the Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration "I am certain that no other lay writers have been more dedicated to updating the vital information to help caregivers navigate the emotionally trying, ever-evolving landscape of early-onset, non-Alzheimer's dementia. These caregivers remain underserved, highlighting the importance of this book and of finding each other." -Dr. Tiffany Chow, behavioral neurologist, author of The Memory Clinic Praise for the first edition: "[A]n updated handbook packed from cover to cover with tips and information for caregivers and sufferers alike." -- Bookwatch "[D]eals with a topic about which little has been written. ...an excellent resource....makes an important contribution to the family caregiving literature because of the biomedical and professional insight it offers into an important but rarely discussed type of dementia." -- Canadian Journal on Aging
