This book is a very comprehensive book on this subject. It is readable to the non-doctor types like me. It was highly recommended to me and I would also recommend it to others who have questions of this disease. My copy came out of a library in the USA. It is considered used but in great shape. I would buy used again.

My Mom is taking this book to the doctor for discussion points Dec 30 2005
By Meg F - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book recommends using it to help discuss with your doctor the PD medications, which is exactly what my Mom is going to do today. When I saw this book recently it was what my Mom had been wishing for to help her figure out how to help my Dad, who is developing Parkinson's hallucinations and paranoia issues after many years of battling this disease. These are known problems from both the disease, as well as the medications to treat the illness. The book gave me renewed hope and optimism for helping my Dad be more himself again. Adjustments of the various prescribed medications can make a difference in life quality by balancing medication negative side effects with their benefits. My Mom is taking my Dad to the doctor today to discuss his medications and she taking this book with her. It's nice to know she has the Mayo clinic doctor, in essence, to take with her to discuss points with the local doctor.

A lot to read but worth the time Aug. 15 2005

This is the largest book on Parkinson's but well worth owning as is the book "What your Doctor may not tell you about Parkinson's" by Marjama-Lyons

An essential resource for the Parkinson's patient and family Jan. 15 2008
By Nicholas Fichter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A relative has Parkinson's and I have tried to help out by researching issues that have come up. The Parkinson's patient and family who arm themselves with information about the many twists and turns in the course of this complicated and profound illness will fare better. You should not expect that the medical world will completely "take care of" the Parkinson's - a lot will be up to you, and you have to learn what to look for, the questions to ask, the possibilities. By the way, we live near Boston, one of the world's great medical centers, so what I am saying does not have to do with lack of access to the best care currently available. This book has been of tremendous practical value to us. I consider it essential for any Parkinson's family. It is easily the best Parkinson's resource I have found.

The Parkinsons Disease Treatment Book July 30 2009
By Norman R. Crane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Being just diagnosed with Parkinsons, I was anxious to learn more about Parkinsons and what my long-range prognosis might be. My Neurologist recommended this book, and I quickly ordered it from Amazon. The author practices at Mayo Clinic, and recommends the use of Carbidopa/Levidopa as a first treatment course for those with Parkinsons. After reading 3/4 of the book, I feel much more familiar and comfortable with the subject of Parkinsons as well as the various courses of treatment, of which there are several. I can recommend this book wholeheartedly to others who are just beginning their association with this disease as well as to those who are several years into the experience.
