Publisher's Summary

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a book summary of The End of Alzheimer's by Dale Bredesen and not the original book. This summary serves best as a companion to the original and contains a chapter-by-chapter analysis, including key takeaways. This summary does not contain the full ReCODE program.

Alzheimer’s disease is largely preventable, and often reversible.

Those are bold statements, especially from a conventionally-trained neurologist. But Dale Bredesen, MD, seems to be no ordinary neurologist.

After more than 30 years of intensive research into the molecular mechanisms underlying Alzheimer’s (AD), and clinical experience caring for thousands of patients, Bredesen is convinced many of medicine’s central dogmas about dementia are misguided at best, and flat-out wrong at worst.

He disputes the fact that there is no effective treatment or prevention method for it, providing details of his extensive and highly successful research as evidence. Bredesen dissects the disease, highlighting many contributory factors - such as insulin resistance and nutrient optimization - that almost always go unmentioned in traditional treatment.

He closes his book with a reminder that once everybody knew a cancer survivor, but nobody could name an Alzheimer’s survivor. That has now changed.

(Disclaimer: This is NOT the original book. If you’re looking for the original book, it is available from Amazon and Audible.)

Great for a quick look

This summary is perfect for getting the short shrift on The End of Alzheimer’s. I learned what I needed in order to make a more concerted effort to change things in my life. However, having the entire book will be more helpful for sure. There was a lot of detail that I would like to review and research, testing that would be beneficial, and information I would like to pass on to friends and family, most of which needs further understanding.

Loved this audio book. I am Starting to learn how to prevent Alzheimer’s in my life. My mom is 88 she tells me he mental faculties are diminishing, this may help her, Thanks. I will begin making changes and see if I can get me doctor to do the Alzheimer’s-oscopy testing like he recently did my colonoscopy. I will buy the printed book to have as a reference!

Very good for us with short attention spans

I debated whether to get the full book on audible but changed my mind for two reasons: 1) my attention span is not that great and my mind would wander in a long book and I would probably daydream through most of it, 2) several reviewers on the full audio said it needed a pdf. I’m surprised one wasn’t furnished in such a book, one would have provided me a way to review and retain what I missed while daydreaming.

This summary audio was quite good and easy to follow and pay attention. On one particular chapter he gave a good summary but admitted there was too much important information to get into a summary; he said if that information was the main reason for getting this summary, the listener can always return it for a full refund (and get the book maybe?). I was quite happy with the summary and won’t be returning for a refund.

Too little

Too brief to be of use to me. I plan to get the original book instead.

Pleasant audiobook!

The book gives an unmistakable synopsis of the first book. Its direct to the point to comprehend the full substance of what the book is portraying, from history to medicines to restorative definitions. Pleasant audiobook!

Excellent summary- worth the money.

I am a health professional and buy many health books. Often I find them irrelevant or repetitive, and feel I’ve wasted my money. This summary gave enough information for me to know that this book would be worth my money to buy. The summary itself contained lots of helpful tips and a clear explanation of the orotocol.
