Boulders: Life with Parkinson's Disease recognizes that the small obstacles of daily life pebbles when one lives with one's health intact-can become a field of boulders that demands planning and effort to traverse when one lives with an impairment. Steven Briggs has turned a series of personal narratives, originally shared at meetings of a support group for people living with Parkinson's disease, into this collection of stories. By injecting a sense of humor that revels in observing life's little incongruities and each person's endearing idiosyncrasies, Boulders helps its readers to place themselves in the shoes of the person with a diagnosis of Parkinson's disease. From that perspective, the stories cover making one's way through the various parts of a typical day: the intricacies of grocery shopping, gardening, bathing, managing home maintenance and safety, going out to eat, going to the doctor, enjoying hobbies, taking a road trip, and visiting the rec center. You may have received a diagnosis of Parkinson's disease. You might know someone who lives with the disease. Perhaps you find inspiration in reading about how another person negotiates his or her way around the boulders that loom along life's paths. No matter what brings you to pick up this book, you will find it entertains, educates, and inspires you to face the boulders in your own life with courage and a smile.
