Sharing the Road: A Journey Through Parkinson’s Disease by by Case Boot

| |

Sharing the Road is a thin volume weighted with wisdom. Parkinson’s disease became author Case Boot’s daily companion just as he was retiring as a Dordt College professor. Ten years into this journey, Boot has written his memoir to encourage others. His life story is gently woven into the harsh realization that this disease is here to stay. Especially poignant are Boot’s words of advice to family and friends. Not limited in its message to those dealing with Parkinson’s disease, this book is an invitation to share the road as we live in community, supporting each other in all our trials and illnesses. Appendixes suggest daily exercises for the body and the voice. (Dordt College Press)
