Joel Havemann, an editor at the Washington bureau of the Los Angeles Times, has been living with Parkinson's disease for over a decade. Like many of the million Americans with the disease, Havemann spent years denying his illness. He finally forced himself to learn its intimate details by treating it as an urgent story that needed reporting in the preparation of this book. Havemann discusses how Parkinson's disrupts the brain's circuitry, how symptoms are managed through drugs and surgery, and where a cure might come from. But this book is also a personal and moving account of Havemann's own struggle with the physical symptoms and the psychological challenges of the disease. Although we kw as much about Parkinson's disease as we kw about any neurological disorder, its cause and cure remain frustrating mysteries to the medical community and to the millions of people around the world living with the disease. The book explains what we kw, speaking with authority and empathy to people with Parkinson's disease and to their families and friends.
