"This is not just the story of a man suffering from Parkinson's disease. On the contrary, its author uses his disease as a means of reflecting upon the brutal causality of life, and upon the existential vulnerability and the need for protection that are its consequences. Both, indeed, persist despite much technological advancement, which shows itself to be always a double-edged sword."
"A book that begs reflection: on the promises that the constantly evolving medical field offers; on the humanity of a society that refuses to accept pain."
-Die Zeit (Germany)
"Disturbing and at the same time fascinating. But above all magnificently written."
- Frankfurter Rundschau (Germany)
"How does stigmatization work? What are the limits of medical advancement? How do healthy people behave towards unhealthy people? Dubiel provides his readers with intelligent and balanced answers to these questions."
-Focus Magazine (Germany)
