With a fitting foreword by Princess Alexandra, the aim of the book is to highlight the plight of sufferers and raise awareness of, and funds for, the valuable work carried out by the Alzheimer’s Society.

Special Note: All of the author's royalties will be donated to 'The Alzheimer’s Society' charity. The paperback version of this book is titled 'Novel Ideas: Celebrities' Favourite Books in aid of the Alzheimer's Society'. This book is also available as an ebook.
