Angela began writing in the mid-1980s, and she is the author of six previous books. For more than 12 years she took care of her husband, who had dementia. Following on the international success of Dealing Daily with Dementia, and How to Communicate with Someone Who Has Dementia, she here turns her focus to the wider questions of the brain's development.
The prospect of getting dementia is very scary for most people. Books like this, which translate technical complexities of things people care about into accessible explanations and stories, become our gems of greater understanding.--Boyd Swinburn, Professor of Population Nutrition and Global Health, University of Auckland, Chair of Health Coalition Aotearoa
