“John Vine says he wrote this book for people
who have been newly diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Well, I
was diagnosed 24 years ago, and I still learned something new on every
page.”—Michael Kinsley, Vanity Fair columnist and author of
Old Age: A Beginner’s Guide

Here is the book that
John Vine and his wife, Joanne, wish they could have consulted when
John was first diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease—a
nontechnical, personal guide written from the patient’s
perspective. Relying on his experiences over the past 12 years, John
writes knowledgeably about all aspects of the disease. John also
interviewed other Parkinson’s patients and their partners, whose
stories and advice he includes throughout the book.

“I wish
we’d had John Vine’s book when my brother-in-law was
diagnosed. The book is highly informative, unflinchingly honest, and
reassuringly optimistic. It’s just what the doctor should have
ordered.”—Cokie Roberts, best-selling author and political
commentator on ABC News and NPR

“John Vine details, in a
compelling and accessible way, his experience with Parkinson’s
disease. His book is an extraordinary guide to living successfully with
Parkinson’s, and a must read for all who want to better understand
the condition. Although diagnosed with Parkinson’s, my father
lived an active and productive life until his death at age 94. As the
book makes clear, while each patient’s journey is unique, common
approaches are indispensable in treating the symptoms of the
disease.”—Eric H. Holder, Jr. served as the 82nd Attorney
General of the United States from 2009 to 2015

“John Vine has
written the best primer I’ve ever read for newly diagnosed
Parkinson’s patients and their families. It helps them cope with
the shock of diagnosis, gives them (jargon-free) the scientific basics
they need to know, describes the symptoms they may experience (making
clear that every case is different) and catalogs the resources available
to navigate living with Parkinson’s. John humanizes the book by
describing his own experience and that of 22 other patients and their
partners. I’d urge every neurologist to have copies of
Vine’s primer on hand to help new PD on their journey
forward.”—Morton Kondracke, author of Saving Milly: Love,
Politics and Parkinson’s Disease
and a member of the Founders'
Council of the Michael J. Fox Foundation

“My husband has PD,
and I devoured this book. It’s wise, wonderfully readable, and,
above all, helpful. Since John Vine has PD, he speaks with great
authority about the challenges, both physical and psychological. If you
have Parkinson’s, live with someone who has it, or just know
someone battling the disease, A Parkinson’s Primer is for
you.”—Lesley Stahl, award-winning television journalist on
the CBS News program 60 Minutes

“This is a remarkable book
describing the personal experiences of many individuals, including the
author, living with Parkinson’s disease. It captures the fact that
although there are many possible symptoms in this disease, each person
experiences different symptoms and copes with them in various ways. The
thoughtful and insightful comments and coping strategies should be
helpful for persons with PD, and their partners, regardless of the stage
of the disease.”—Stephen Grill, MD, PhD, Director of the
Parkinson’s & Movement Disorders Center of Maryland

M. Vine
is a lawyer at Covington & Burling LLP in Washington, DC,
where he is the senior member and former head of the firm’s
employee benefits group. He was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in
