Sinopsis: The Gene Guillotine: An Early-Onset Alzheimer's Memoir is a 306 page memoir told in first person in the present tense. It leads the reader through the duration of early-onset Alzheimer's disease (also known as young-onset Alzheimer's) from the first symptoms as seen in the narrator's mother, to personality changes, mental decline, death of a caregiver, placement in care facilities, the discovery of the gene that causes Alzheimer's in their family, to the mother's final breath. This book shows love and compassion as well as the mental anguish, emotional toll, and the ugly side of Alzheimer's. The narrator brings the reader into family discussions about her mother's strong living will and end-of-life wishes for this terminal disease. After her mother's death, the narrator describes her participation in research studies for familial Alzheimer's disease, genetic counseling and wrestling with her decision whether or not to learn her own genetic status. It explores the feelings, fears and life choices of the narrator who knows she may also get this genetically inherited disease that has already claimed five family members.

From the Back Cover: "With her keen eye, compassionate heart, and penetrating mind, Kate Preskenis has penned what is without a doubt the most moving account of Alzheimer's disease yet written. As she stares, unblinking, at the disease that steals her mother away, she knows all the time that the very same familial Alzheimer gene may also lurk in her."
--Kenneth S. Kosik, Co-Director Neuroscience Research Institute
UCSB,Author of The Alzheimer's Solution

"Kate Preskenis digs deep into her heart and comes up with one of the most moving memoirs ever written on Early Onset Alzheimer's Disease. Kate addresses the genetic connection, which is often missed by so many authors. If you want to know anything about Alzheimer's, this book is a must read."
--Pat Moffett, author of Ice Cream In The Cupboard
