Here are some of my favorite books on Parkinson’s along with a few other items you may want for home or for travel.
Tommy Burke worked in Hollywood for over 30 years before being diagnosed with first Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and then Parkinson’s Disease. His inspirational style is infectious as is his zest for life. His mantra throughout the book is “NEVER GIVE UP”, whether on the set, fighting cancer or Parkinson’s.
Brian Grant and Ric Bucher tell the inspiring story about Grant’s rise to fame in the NBA and his battle with Parkinson’s Disease.
by Viktor E Frankl
Recommended by Bradley McDaniels, PhD
A book for finding purpose and strength in times of great despair, the international best-seller is still just as relevant today as when it was first published.
Very inspirational book for everyone. It is a classic must read.
Dr. Laurie Mischley is a researcher at the forefront of alternative therapies for PD. Highly recommended.
Dr. Michael S. Okun, a leading expert in Parkinson’s Disease treatment. A good addition to add to your PD library.
by Ray Dorsey MD, Todd Sherer PhD, Michael S. Okun MD Bastiaan R. Bloem MD PhD.
The new MUST READ book about Parkinson’s Disease for everyone with Parkinson’s and their care partners.
by Tim Hague – Hague was diagnosed with YOPD at age 46 and won Canada’s Amazing Race race with his son, Tim Jr., 3 years later. The highlight of the book is his blow by blow account of the Race, which he (and his opponents) never expected to win.
Still my all time favorite. After his own diagnosis with PD, Palfreman, an award winning science journalist, wrote this insightful book about the doctors, researchers, and patients who continue to hunt for a cure for Parkinson’s Disease.

For comfort when flying, I highly recommend these. They come in fun colors and different levels of compression. The most comfortable compression socks I have ever had.
