Still Alice by Lisa Genova

This book is from the perspective of a woman with early-onset Alzheimer's. It starts off with her picking up on the early signs of memory loss, leads into her diagnosis, and then continues with how it affects her life (the end of her career, her relationships with her husband and children).

I almost returned the book without reading it because I thought it might be too depressing. And, indeed, it was heartbreaking, but I'm glad that I read it.
