Even a casual glance at the contents page will tell any reader that this book is gold for anyone with PD, or a health professional involved in the management of PD. It is perfect for the 21st century individual, who is busy with life, doesn't have time to read a long book and needs excellent and meaningful information that is easy to find and immediately put into practice.

It starts off with understanding PD in simple layperson's terms. Then looks at how to maintain energy, promote regular bowel function, incontinence, gives tips on taking drugs more effectively, discusses PD drugs and their effects, healthy eating tips, dealing with weight problems, dental care, addresses chewing or swallowing problems as well as speech and voice projection issues, improving sleep, gives tips for intimacy, suggests ways to improve muscles and movement and hand flexibility as well as feet and walking, covers the many considerations of stress in PD...and the list goes on...travel tips, recipes, what to discuss with your doctor...!

It is so well written and utterly packed full of easy-to-understand information it is hard to believe it's less than 200 pages long (the book version of the TARDIS!). This book is very beneficial for those interested in how to manage PD for so many reasons:

Don't have the time to read a long book? This book is for you.
Want a primer for managing PD? This book is for you.
Short of ideas on what to do for anyone with PD? This book is for you.
Need some prompts or revision on how to manage PD? This book is for you.
Would like a comprehensive yet 'digestible' guide to managing PD? This book is for you.

Everyone with PD should have a copy of this book to hand, and every health professional should be recommending it to their patients and clients.

This book is essential for anyone with Parkinson's Disease at any stage. It provides "Tips" on the many aspects that an individual with Parkinson's faces. There are even humorous illustrations to balance out the serious matters addressed.
The book includes areas that may not always be advised like the importance of the specific timing of taking L-dopa in relation to food (protein competes with L-dopa transport across the blood brain barrier). The recommendations, however are NOT just from a nutritional perspective but cover personal, physiological, and psychological areas, amongst others.
This user-friendly book encourages Parkinson's people to be proactive as regards their needs when communicating with the medical profession.

Excellent book. Lucille Leader cares so passionately about her patients with Parkinson's disease. This book is a must for anyone who wants to understand the disease and who wants to have the best quality of life with Parkinsons. Everything is explained in a very understandable way.

These people tell you things you will never pick up from any busy doctor or specialist, about Parkinson's disease. It is easier to understand than the same authors book "Parkinson's Disease: Reducing Symptoms with Nutrition and Drugs " and both books are a must for anyone who has the slightest inclination to help his/her self. If you don't read them, you are the loser.

This book truly offers what the title promises:- well founded practical recommendations, taken from a range of specialist healthcare areas, that enhance physical, non-motor and emotional functioning of the Parkinson's sufferer. It is especially designed for care-givers and Parkinson's sufferers, empowering them to ask the right questions when consulting with their physicians about their general care.

I was encouraged to buy this by the many positive reviews. However, as someone with Parkinson's, this didn't work for me. I found it very simplistic and a little patronising. I particularly disliked the illustrations.

I found the dietary advice so confusing that it was no help. Ok to have lots of facts then a paragraph of simple facts would help to make a complicated life of balancing food and medication less complicated!
