After having read several books regarding Parkinson's Disease, I found that this was one of the most clearly written, comprehensive books I've read on the topic. It starts with a definition of the disease and then discusses such areas as emotions, health care, diet and exercise, family members' concerns, and medical options (and more!)
One of the most helpful sections dicusses the importance of managing and overcoming mental obstacles patients experience and how to cope with them. Its positive tone offers practical advice to patients as well as caregivers in every stage of the disease.
As a PD patient, I'm glad to have this book in my collection and know that I'll be referring to it often.
