Karl Robb has written a beautiful memoir/self-help book for people living with Parkinson's disease, or any other chronic illness for that matter. The author details his intelligent, dignified and upbeat way of coping with a degenerative disease since his early 20s and offers a myriad of suggestions for managing Parkinson's with both traditional Western medicine and other complementary therapies, like meditation, yoga, qigong and, in particular, reiki. You can feel Robb's energy in his prose, which is sufficiently well-written and infused with the wisdom of his experience to forgive his occasional repetitiveness. This an excellent read for anyone with PD or a care-giver.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
