Karl had symptoms of Parkinson's in his teens and was diagnosed in his early 20's. As challenging as the diagnosis was at 36, I can only imagine what it must have been like to be diagnosed with PD at 21. The stories in this book guide you on a journey to a better life with Parkinson's by helping each person take charge of his/her individual path while providing the resources of a lifetime's experience.
Karl Robb is a natural and gifted writer. It was a pleasant and fullfilling experience each time I read his book. Karl provides many meaningful, practical, encouraging, and benefitial insights' into getting the most out of life whether healthy or not.
Karl Robb has coped, managed, thrived, and succeeded in life though having an extremely debilitating chronic malady for approximately 31 years'. And thus provides an abounding, vast, helpful, and valuable breadth of knowledge and wisdom on the subject of coping with a chronic condition as well as getting the most out of difficult trials in general.
Though A SOFT VOICE IN A NOISY WORLD is great and highly recommended by me for every body, I believe it's a must read for persons with Parkinsons and any other chronic degenerative malady as well as all persons associated with the condition in any regard. Many highly important tips, resources, ideas, and experiences are provided, as well as contacts and support groups.
I've known Karl for 10 years. His gifts include a penetrating sense of humor, deep integrity, palpable compassion, and the grace to live life with eyes open and heart forward. These qualities are woven through the book. Enjoy, mull over, and take action that supports your well being wherever you are on your healing journey.
