This book is self-explanatory and it raises awareness about the Parkinson's disease to the non- medical reader. It has good figures, which helps to understand the terminology of the
Parkinson's disease. This book also gives a strong foundation about the history of this disease.

Very well written....Highly informative brochure regarding Parkinson's disease that helps laymen (like me) and scholars alike in understanding the disease as a whole. Dr. Rana performs an in-depth analysis of biological functioning, however, he does not undermine the debilitating social aspects of livelihood. I would certainly recommend it to all.
