Mr Joe Potocny's Book

I had the pleasure of receiving in the mail a signed copy of Mr Joe Potocny's book Living With Alzheimers' [A Conversation If You Will]. It is published by Xlibris and is 311 pages. It covers Joe's blog from September 2006 to Sept 2010. Joe has had almost 50,000 visitors to his blog and the book contains those blog entries and comments from readers over 4 years. There are hundreds of entries. It basically takes you through the life of Joe and chronicles the Alzheimer's he is living with. In addition it gives a little slice of his readers and what they are going through and how they relate to Joe's journey.  We are all fortunate that Joe put this together, as it needed to be detailed not just in the cyber web land but in good old fashioned book form. He has it available in hardbound and paperback and ebook and kindle.
It is very cool because you can pick it up and turn to any page and find a moving blog entry. Or you can read it from cover to cover or back to front. You will pick it up and get a real slice of the Alzheimer's world and learn something. And like I always say, you don't have to be affected by this or have a loved one affected to pick it up and learn something. Congratulations to Joe on a job well done. He continues to wage the war, fight the fight, and make us all aware.
