You must be joking! What is Parkinson's disease? Why is this happening to me?
What caused this to happen?

In January 2007, at the age of sixty-one, fit and active educator Vic Peterson is completely rocked by the news that the tremor in his right foot and soreness in his shoulder are indicators of Parkinson's disease. And as he processes this shocking diagnosis, Vic comes to realize there are two paths he can take. He can let Parkinson's devastate his life, or he can find strategies to cope with the illness and forge ahead.

Today, nearly seventeen years later, Vic is still successfully managing his Parkinson's, meeting its challenges, and living life to the full. In Managing Parkinson's, he begins with defining the disease and addresses motor and non-motor symptoms and how each affects an individual's diagnosis. Then he provides sound, experiential advice on how to manage and cope with the disease's progression through medication, nutrition, exercise, and the role one can play in clinical trials. A special feature is a detailed analysis of appointments between Vic and his neurologists, detailing the progression of the illness and Vic's continuing success in managing its symptoms.

Insightful, frank, and practical, Managing Parkinson's is not only an eminently helpful guide, but also a beacon of hope.
