Book Details

In 2006, Daniel Gibbs, author of A Tattoo on my Brain: A Neurologist’s Personal Battle against Alzheimer’s Disease (soon to be a documentary produced by MTV/Paramount+), first noticed symptoms which he now knows to have been early signs of his Alzheimer’s Disease. Daniel still writes every day, something he credits with keeping his mind sharper and his demons at bay. This book is a personal collection of essays written over the past two years that describe his own personal experiences, first treating patients with Alzheimer’s, and now living with the disease himself. The book presents an up-to-date discussion of recent advances and setbacks in Alzheimer’s research. Humane and hopeful, this book offers evidence-based information on how it may be possible even now to slow progression of the disease.
