      In a recent column I took a deep dive into Parkinson’s disease literature. There’s something about collecting information that comforts me when I’m up against a challenge. So, it’s not uncommon for me to spend a few hours in the library when my life gets a little haywire. During my recent binge, I took a look at biographies of people who lived with PD (like Muhammad Ali and Michael J Fox), alternative medicine books and literature about PD from the caregiver’s perspective. But I’m curious about what literature others have found helpful or enlightening.

      Have you read any good books about Parkinson’s disease? Do you find inspiration in the biographies of people who have battled PD? What is the single-most helpful piece of PD literature you have encountered?

      The graphic novel, My Degeneration, by fellow Parkie Peter Dunlap-Shohl, is the most wonderful book about living with PD. Funny, moving, and all so true.
