Uniform Title:Mental sharpening stones :
Summary:

With an estimated 400,000 multiple sclerosis patients in the United States alone, conservatively speaking, half of the MS population will encounter varying degrees of cognitive difficulties. Newer studies point to a percentage of 65%, affecting over 2.5 million world-wide MS patients.

"Mental Sharpening Stones: Manage the Cognitive Challenges of Multiple Sclerosis" provides real-life techniques garnered from MS patients and their medical providers, sharing their practical methods for pushing back against the disruptive and potentially disabling cognitive symptoms that affect MS patients. The book offers strategies that will assist those living with MS to retain their intellectual faculties through sharpening their mental discipline.

This book is a vital step beyond acknowledging cognitive symptoms and the revealing changes that can affect those living with MS. It will also inform those who know them physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. The contributing writers of this book serve as exemplars and guides of how to live with and function - despite MS cognitive challenges.

This book includes:

Tips and tricks for dealing with cognitive issues A conversation with Montel Williams A conversation with New York Times bestselling author Richard Cohen A conversation with Chief Justice of the Colorado Supreme Court, Mary Mullarkey A portion of the proceeds from this book will be donated to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and the Montel Williams MS Foundation
