Parkinson's Disease: 300 Tips for Making Life Easier April 10 2007
By Susan Larrabee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I purchased 2 copies of this book after researching available books on the topic. Gave 1 to my step-dad and 1 to my mother-in-law. They both have found this book VERY helpful. My mother-in-law refers to almost daily. At her request I purchased a 3 copy for her nephew who also has this horrible disease. I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who has the disease.

Great Book -- What the Doctors Don't Tell You April 23 2010
By E. Leslie Combs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great book. I had to learn through trial and error and with a lot of research ways to cope with Parkinson's i.e. make mobility, speech, and access easier. This would've saved me tons of time if I bought it earlier. And it gave me a lot of new ideas.
