These conditions, he explains, occur when our immune systems break down. This ground-breaking book now prescribes effective solutions.'

Hardcover. 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket 2001 PublicAffairs. Superclean; no marks; pages bright; binding tight. Only light wear. 320pp. Language: English. 'The author, formerly a panelist on The McLaughlin Group and currently a columnist for Fox News, has written a deeply personal and bracingly honest account of how he and his wife, Milly, have coped with her diagnosis of Parkinson's disease. ... Milly's passionate enjoyment of life made it very difficult for her, at the age of 47, to accept a doctor's opinion in 1988 that the tremors she was experiencing were the beginnings of Parkinson's disease. The Kondrackes finally came to terms with Milly's condition and began searching for a treatment. Milly underwent several operations and has had various drug therapies, but her condition continues to worsen. She is now dependent on others for physical care and can barely communicate. Kondracke provides a harrowing overview of how organizations for other diseases such as AIDS or breast cancer compete with Parkinson's advocates for badly needed research dollars. He describes his involvement with Michael J. Fox (diagnosed with Parkinson's) and Fox's political lobbying for funds.'--Publishers Weekly, 2001.

0394582691 / 9780394582696 Acceptable.  
Hardcover. HARDCOVER with dustjacket BOOK CLUB EDITION 1991. Very clean; pages bright; binding tight. Light-to-average wear. 422pp, Index, Notes. Language: English. NOTE: Cannot ship outside U.S. via Global Priority -- Surface or Airmail only. 'Greer turns the clear light of her ferocious intelligence on what she calls the undescribed experience, the female climacteric--menopause. She has read everything: medical treatises, herbaries, historical letters, the few literary works that treat this universal aspect of female experience. At last, she says, women get to decide: Whether they wish to spend the second half of their lives in a ghastly re-creation of culturally approved youth, or whether menopause marks the end of apologizing and the beginning of a search for deep joy for and in oneself. She notes that the pitifully small amount of research done does not yet indicate the real causes for menopausal distress such as hot flashes, nor does it untangle the symptoms of plain aging from the cessation of monthly periods. She decries the lack of role models for the aging woman but does find us a few: the courtesan Ninon de Lenclos, whose intelligence charmed male and female alike into her advanced age; Karen Blixen (Isak Dinesen), who wielded her old woman's power into lapidary prose; Jane Digby El Mezrab, who at 47 enchanted a sheik, who rode by her side for 30 more years. Not the least of models is Greer herself, whose fine and hard-edged voice makes life after the cessation of childbearing sound, if difficult and harrowing, also joyful and rich in reward....'--GraceAnne A. DeCandido, Library Journal, 1992.
