I overall enjoyed the book, I thought I knew some things about Parkinson’s disease, but it really made me realize that I barely knew the surface of it. I didn’t know how different it evolves for some people, I just thought it all starts the same with shaky hands and tremors and gradually gets worse and worse. But there were some people who had mild symptoms for 10 years and there also were people who were unable to function after just 2-3 years of the diagnosis. The most interesting I found the quotes and struggles of every day life of people at the congress and personal additions made by the author, I think it made the book easier to read, even when there was a lot of science and medics vocabulary to it.
