About the Author

Shelley Peterman Schwarz's nationally syndicated "Making Life Easier" column is the result of years of problem solving, and appears in newspapers and magazines throughout the country. Now, from the acclaimed author of 300 Tips to Making Life with Multiple Sclerosis Easier, readers with Parkinson's disease can take advantage of an extensive collection of practical tips and techniques geared specifically to their needs and concerns.

More About the Author

Shelley Peterman Schwarz is an award-winning author, columnist, and popular radio and TV personality, who just happens to have a disability. Shelley shares tips and strategies she has learned for living well despite chronic illness, disability, or age related limitations to benefit others with physical limitations and the people who love, care for, and work with them.

When diagnosed with the primary progressive form of multiple sclerosis (MS)in 1979, Shelley's life changed in ways that could never have been imagined. With two preschoolers at home and losing abilities daily, Shelley had to find new ways to do everyday tasks. Her "Eureka!" moment occurred one day while making a peanut butter sandwich; the bread tore and her children refused to eat it. Her solution: freeze the bread so she could spread the peanut butter without tearing it. That was the first of thousands of tips and strategies that eventually became the basis for articles published in such publications as Family Circle, Special Living, Inside MS, and Arthritis Today, to name a few and the popular Tips for Making Life Easier series of books. Shelley has been a featured and keynote presenter at conferences nationwide and conducts teleclasses and Webinars for audiences around the world.

Format: Paperback
This book is a great resource for people with PD. It has a chapter about the special challenges of eating/swallowing with PD, which was very detailed and informative. I'd recommend the book.

There's not a lot of content to the book. It might be one of several that a newly-diagnosed PD patient might read. Tips like using pullover shirts instead of button-down, slip on instead of lace-up shoes, etc. are helpful.
