It seems these were written as essays, not originally intended to be a book, so there is some overlap. I didn’t mind it, though. The repetition came through like repeating refrains in music. And there’s a bonus collection of poems at the end.
I think everyone with PD should read it. Very brave book.
A person might come to read this book looking for information about dealing with Parkinson's- as someone with the disease or someone who has a friend with PD- but, as Rick clearly states, there are no ready made answers here. And there is no hope as well: "Denial is sometimes the closest I can get to hope." What a delightful insight.
Rick takes us through some of the experiences, thoughts, and feelings of his inner world in a refreshingly honest, thoughtful and very well-written way. His style is wonderfully real: "I said that I wouldn't give advice in this book. I lied. My advice is to be kinder to yourself and to other people and express gratitude daily for the gifts you've been given."
How nice to read a book written by someone who understands inside and outside what not only words but punctuation mean. This is a bonus, the prize inside is in the story Rick tells us about himself, prose and poetry alike. Enjoy.
