Carved In Sand
Cathryn Jakobson Ramin's Carved in Sand is a great read about memory and loss thereof, particularly useful for those of us who have family members suffering such common aging tragedies.
She writes about people's inability to fend off distractions in middle age. Relentless in her search for answers to questions about her own unreliable memory, she explores the factors that determine how well—or poorly—one’s brain will age. Cathryn consults experts in the fields of sleep, stress, traumatic brain injury, hormones, genetics, and dementia, as well as specialists in nutrition, cognitive psychology, and the burgeoning field of drug-based cognitive enhancement.
