What is it like to lose your mind, to see slices of one’s identity slowly drifting away like blow balls? Veteran journalist Greg O’Brien likens the journey in this expanded edition of ON PLUTO: INSIDE THE MIND OF ALZHEIMERS—with 12 new chapters—to a flyby of the dwarf planet Pluto, as seen through the lens of NASA’s intrepid spacecraft New Horizons. ON PLUTO, an international award winner when initially published in 2014, is the first book written by an investigative reporter, embedded inside the mind of Alzheimer’s, chronicling the unbroken progression of his own disease.
