As you age, you may find yourself worrying about your memory. Where did I put those car keys? What time was my appointment? What was her name again? With more than 41 million Americans over the age of 65 in the United States, the question becomes how much (or, perhaps, what type) of memory loss is to be expected as one gets older and what should trigger a visit to the doctor. Seven Steps to Managing Your Memory addresses these key concerns and more, such as... * What are the signs that suggest your memory problems are more than just part of normal aging? * Is it normal to have concerns about your memory? * What are the markers of mild cognitive impairment, dementia, Alzheimer's, and other neurodegenerative diseases? * How should you convey your memory concerns to your doctor? * What can your doctor do to evaluate your memory? * Which healthcare professional(s) should you see? * What medicines, alternative therapies, diets, and exercises are available to improve your memory? * Can crossword puzzles, computer brain-training games, memory aids, and strategies help strengthen your memory? * What other resources are available when dealing with memory loss? Seven Steps to Managing Your Memory is written in an easy-to-read yet comprehensive style, featuring clinical vignettes and character-based stories that provide real-life examples of how to successfully manage age-related memory loss.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Dr. Andrew Budson and Dr. Maureen OConnors book [...] ushers in much needed brilliance, illuminating a path through what can be a dark and disconcerting sense of the unknown. [...] This book provides an excellent overview for those experiencing memory problems in old age. It provides sound advice and direction for cognitive assessment at the hands of a qualified clinical neuropsychologist working closely alongside a behavioral neurologist or physician with expertise in memory disorders. Soon after finishing this book, I thought about asking my postdoctoral fellow to read it. That is arguably one of the highest indications of its worth that I could give. * S. Duke Han, PhD, ABPP-CN, Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology *
Overall, I would highly recommend the book as a valuable resource for patients and families. I found it to be clear, accessible, generally accurate reading. I will gladly recommend the book to my patients and their families, and I would encourage other neurologists to do the same. * Howard S. Kirshner, Cognitive and Behavioral Neurology *
