I enjoyed the first four chapters of “Brain Storms” and it for sure has broadened my perspective on on neurodegenerative diseases, especially Parkinson’s disease. Books like this one are my favorite kinds of books – the ones that present some medical issues, but not in a textbook kind of way. The book engrossed me so much, that now I feel the need to read more on this topic. Jon Palfreman’s writing style seemed really enjoyable and despite all of the medical terminology, the book was a pleasant and informative read for me. It made me realise how little I knew about Parkinson’s disease and now I’m very glad that I had a chance to read it. It struck me how differently people experience Parkinson’s and how distinctly it evolves for every case.
