Meet Nikolai - a man with Parkinson's disease. Nikolai invites readers to learn about Parkinson's from his perspective, helping them to understand how Parkinson's affects his daily life and why some tasks can be especially challenging for him. He also gives advice on how to help someone with Parkinson's when they have difficulties with physical movements and memory.
This illustrated book is full of useful information and will be an ideal introduction for children from the age of 7, as well as older readers. It will help family, friends and carers better understand and explain the condition, and will be an excellent starting point for group discussions.
Alan M. Hultquist provides a wealth of accessible information about a very complicated disease through the eyes of Nikolai, a man with Parkinson's disease. This book is a great guide to share with family, friends and colleagues looking for personal insight into this illness. – Diane L.
