I highly recommend this to those with elder parents or any middle-aged person who sees themselves becoming a senior one day. The story on delirium alone is worth the reading; very engaging writing style draws you in and makes this a fast read, and one you'll want to refer back to. Don't assume your doctor has studied geriatrics.
