In this phenomenal memoir - the first of its kind - Wendy grapples with questions most of us have never had to consider. What do you value when loss of memory reframes what you have, how you have lived and what you stand to lose? What happens when you can no longer recognise your own daughters or even, on the foggiest of days, yourself?
Philosophical, intensely personal and ultimately hopeful, Somebody I Used to Know gets to the very heart of what it means to be human. It is both a heartrending tribute to the woman Wendy used to be and a brave affirmation of the woman dementia has seen her become.

I didn’t know if I wanted to listen to Wendy’s story I was a bit scared I suppose. I’m glad I did I think everyone should read it,it is the most informative information on dementia have heard on how it affects people who have it,both my mother and my mother in law had dementia I wish Wendy’s book had been around then I would have understood the disease better and approached some issues with more understanding.Everyone should read it,it should be part of the school curriculum to help future generations understand the disease.

Moved to tears and awe by this autobiographic account of the authors experience of dementia
Picked up the book to gain some insight into what Alzeihmers disease is doing to my husbands brain.Trying to help him and myself to adapt to this Tsunami that is Alzeihmer.
I gain compassion and understanding of his plight and mine.
Brave brave struggle that Wendy has put to the disease. What is more learn a lot of her coping strategies that are going to be helpful , for example the use of reminders in the IPad.
Thank you from the heart
