Book Description

For readers of Atul Gawande Siddhartha Mukherjee and Henry Marsh a riveting gorgeously written biography of one of history’s most fascinating and confounding diseases–Alzheimer’s–from its discovery more than 100 years ago to today’s race towards a cure.

SHORTLISTED FOR THE ROYAL SOCIETY SCIENCE BOOK PRIZE 2017

Named “Science Book of the Month” by Bookseller

Alzheimer’s is the great global epidemic of our time affecting millions worldwide — there are more than 5 million people diagnosed in the US alone. And as our population ages scientists are working against the clock to find a cure.

Neuroscientist Joseph Jebelli is among them. His beloved grandfather had Alzheimer’s and now he’s written the book he needed then — a very human history of this frightening disease. But In Pursuit of Memory is also a thrilling scientific detective story that takes you behind the headlines. Jebelli’s quest takes us from nineteenth-century Germany and post-war England to the jungles of Papua New Guinea and the technological proving grounds of Japan; through America India China Iceland Sweden and Colombia. Its heroes are scientists from around the world — many of whom he’s worked with — and the brave patients and families who have changed the way that researchers think about the disease.

This compelling insider’s account shows vividly why Jebelli feels so hopeful about a cure but also why our best defense in the meantime is to understand the disease. In Pursuit of Memory is a clever moving eye-opening guide to the threat one in three of us faces now.
