Parkinson's disease is a degenerative disorder that afflicts at least 500,000 Americans over the age of 45. Neither cause nor cure has been found, although some progress has been made in treatment of symptoms. This is the first book written for patients, families, and caregivers, and it is extremely well done. Comprehensive information on the course of the disease, possible complications, and current research is combined with very practical chapters on medication, exercise, and emotional support. Very highly recommended. --Evelyn L. Mott, Palm Beach Cty. P.L. System, West Palm Beach, Fla.
