These are a few of my favorite Parkinson’s reads:
Perseverance: The Seven Skills You Need to Survive, Thrive, and Accomplish More Than You Ever Imagined by Tim Hague – review coming soon, great first chapter by the winner of Canada’s Amazing Race. Hague was diagnosed with YOPD at age 46 and won the race 3 years later.
Parkinson’s? You’re kidding me, right?: One woman’s unshakeable belief in overcoming a shaky diagnosis! by Sheryl Jedlinski. Jedlinski was one of the first PD blogs that I followed. Always informative and a good read.
Natural Therapies for Parkinson’s Disease by Dr. Laurie Mischley. Dr. Mischley is a researcher at the forefront of alternative therapies for PD. Highly recommended.
