Editorial Reviews

Review

“This smart, soulful, and inspiring book will galvanize anyone who suffers from Parkinson’s or wants to help someone else learn to live well with any kind of debilitating injury or disease. A fascinating hands-on explanation of how movement, music, and mindfulness can replace pills and pain.” —Professor Susan Shapiro, New York Times bestselling coauthor, with Dr. Frederick Woolverton, of Unhooked: How to Quit Anything

“Alex Kerten and David Brinn understand the challenges of living with chronic illness and have offered a realistic solution. Goodbye Parkinson’s, Hello life is clear, straightforward, and warm — a valuable companion for Parkinson’s patients and caregivers alike.” —Jessica Handler, author of Braving the Fire: A Guide to Writing About Grief and Loss and Invisible Sisters, A Memoir

“Each new person receiving a Parkinson’s diagnosis should have the opportunity to learn they are still a healthy person...with Parkinson’s. Alex Kerten’s Gyro-Kinetics program vividly demonstrates that everyone — no exceptions — can choose to change their lives by taking the challenge to be a Parkinson’s Warrior.” —Lolly Champion, Education Chair/Vice President, Parkinson Association of Santa Barbara (PASB)

“Alex Kerten’s method also requires the mind to think positively: You are not a sick person who is ruled by Parkinson’s, but a healthy person who just happens to have Parkinson’s. The simple (yet challenging) shift in emphasis is a key part of the movement method. But Kerten is refreshingly enthusiastic and encouraging, clearly explaining his method through very simple movement tasks outlined in the book. His method goes beyond being a dance manual though. It is a recipe for a different way of living with a chronic condition.”
—Dr. Sara Houston, principal lecturer, national teaching fellow, Department of Dance, University of Roehampton

"It's not just a book, it's hope". —Shimon Peres, President of Israel (2007-2014)

“Alex Kerten has created a proven method that gives Parkinson’s patients hope for better coping and even improvement — using exercises and a new way of thinking. With the aging of the population, Parkinson’s and other neurological conditions can strike virtually anyone, and his book will come to the rescue for many of them.” —Judy Siegel-Itzkovich, health and science editor, The Jerusalem Post

“Alex Kerten’s book proposes a proactive approach to Parkinson’s — using body movement to combat nerve degenerative ailments. Movement-exercise systems are showing promise. May none of you need this. But get moving, anyway.” —David Brin, bestselling author of Existence and many others

“This book is a statement of hope and possibility as it shows the limitations of our Western approach to disease and highlights the power of one’s mind and perspective as it relates to healing the body. It’s more than a regimen of exercises; it’s a recipe for changing one’s perspective and exercising mind over matter.” —Lisa Wimberger, founder of the Neurosculpting® Institute and author of New Beliefs, New Brain and Neurosculpting: A Whole-Brain Approach to Heal Trauma, Rewrite Limiting Beliefs, and Find Wholeness
