This is a unique and valuable guide designed especially for Parkinsonian patients and their families. Dr. McGoon has all the medical know-how of an eminent physician-and, as a patient, he is intimately familiar with the ways in which Parkinsonians suffer. In this inspiring and practical volume, he explains the basics of this mysterious disease, describes his own innovative program to combat its symptoms, and tells Parkinsonians how to maintain that strength of spirit which can be their best defense. The Parkinson's Handbook will be required reading for the one and a half million Americans who suffer from this disease and for the people who care for them.
Extremely interesting and informative. I know that it will be a popular book among patients and their caregivers.--Joseph Jankovic, M.D., Baylor College of Medicine
