Parkinson’s disease Books

According to the Parkinson’s Action Network, a new case of Parkinson’s disease (PD) is diagnosed every nine minutes. This means that there are thousands of people who can benefit from reading about the disease, the symptoms that might be experienced; tests that a doctor might administer; theories about the roles of genetics and environmental factors in causation of the disease; medications and other treatment; exercise; nutrition, and alternative therapies. There are also other considerations that affect caregivers: depression; changes in libido, telling friends and family; financial planning; and workplace issues.

There are over 300 books published on the topic of Parkinson’s disease, here a few of the highly rated by Parkinson’s patients and caregivers.
