I purchased 2 copies of this book after researching available books on the topic. Gave 1 to my step-dad and 1 to my mother-in-law. They both have found this book VERY helpful. My mother-in-law refers to almost daily. At her request I purchased a 3 copy for her nephew who also has this horrible disease. I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who has the disease.

This is a great book. I had to learn through trial and error and with a lot of research ways to cope with Parkinson's i.e. make mobility, speech, and access easier. This would've saved me tons of time if I bought it earlier. And it gave me a lot of new ideas.

Among many helpful things the section on obsessive/compulsive behavior resulting from sinemet medication enabled me to adjust medication to reduce inappropriate behavior.

We have learned many of these tips but much more slowly, only by learning from friends with PD, haunting Amazon and reading review, and our trusty Occupational Therapist. There is actually one idea I had been considering that no one wanted me to do - remove our bathroom door and replace it with a curtain!

If you are newly diagnosed or have a family member who is, this is an awesome practical resource. While the book provides resources for purchasing some items at the back, I often find that Amazon has a lower price.

My Husband and I both enjoyed this book. There were so many tips and ways to do things that will make my husband's life a little better. My husband freezes a lot and has a hard time walking but with your tip of lifting your legs and marching has made it a lot easier for him to walk. Everyone that has Parkinson's and their care takers should read this book

Everyone is different. This book has so great resources in it. Some I found online. My Dad is older, has bad neuropathy with his Parkinson's. So, he has no feeling in his legs. He also has bad knees. So, exercising is really hard for him. This book would be good for someone younger and able to do a bit more.
