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.

HASH(0xa35f533c) out of 5 stars 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.

Among many helpful things the section on obsessive/compulsive behavior resulting from sinemet medication enabled me to adjust medication to reduce inappropriate behavior.

My Husband and I both enjoyed this book. There were so many tips and ways to do things that will make my husband's life a little better. My husband freezes a lot and has a hard time walking but with your tip of lifting your legs and marching has made it a lot easier for him to walk. Everyone that has Parkinson's and their care takers should read this book
