A story about the audacious challenge to defeat one of our greatest socio-economic threats - Alzheimer's disease - and how the medical community and the pharmaceutical industry rise to face it. The pressure and enormous stakes of the Race for the Mind expose the most noble and misguided aspects of our humanity.

Dr. Darya Rostov, one of the greatest minds of a generation is stricken with Alzheimer's disease - she represents the 50 million people who are currently making their long journey into the night. Jack Callahan is the CEO of BioNeura, a San Francisco biotech company developing what could be the first breakthrough for patients like Darya. Dr. Nathaniel Shah, a brilliant neurologist rises to run SNS, a rival company based in Geneva, Switzerland and hides a terrifying secret. The plot tracks Callahan and Shah, each driven by very different things and their struggle within themselves and with each other. It should be all about the patients like Rostov - but alas, we're all human - and that sometimes gets in the way.

100 percent of the profits from book sales will be donated to Alzheimer's care, support and research.
