At first I thought I I won’t enjoy reading the book – the language seemed quite difficult and, like others, I don’t really know a lot about brain structure and anatomy yet. But while reading about PD I realised I don’t really know much about it – in my mind I just had this image of an old person struggling to eat something because they’re hands were shaking. It was great to learn more about the disease and how differently it affects different people.
I’m also a big film fan, and I watched „Awakenings” with Robin Williams and Robert De Niro few years ago – I’m happy that I could read about the true story behind it.
