This is a must read, particularly for the newly diagnosed, their family and friends. It is the book I wish had been available when I was diagnosed. It offers practical advice to people with Parkinson’s about how to manage the effects of the symptoms. It draws on the personal experience of Ann and others who have lived with Parkinson’s for a number of years. It covers the impact of a diagnosis of Parkinson’s on everyday life such as employment and relationships, how and when to tell others as well as how to come to terms with it yourself.
