Title:  Coming Late to America: 1000 Hours With Victims of Memory Loss

Author:  Dr. Oliver Akamnonu

Publisher:  XLibris

Reviewer:   Marilyn Meredith – AAA Member

Ogbuebe, a doctor in his homeland, is suddenly faced with the realization that it was no longer safe to live or practice medicine in the government hospitals.  He moves his family to America.  Reading about Ogbuebe’s challenges in the new land as he learns to drive and to deal with the banking systems is fascinating.  He tries gambling in Las Vegas and witnesses American politics.  In fact, Ogbuebe’s curiosity about all things American and his conclusions about them are quite interesting.  A great section of the book is about Ogbuebe’s time working in an Alzheimer’s facility and what he observes about the facility itself, the Alzheimer’s patients, and those who care for them.  This is an interesting read about America through the eyes of someone who came here from a third world country.

Definitely worth reading, and will make you think about how people from another country view us.
