Footprints: A Memoir
by Kirk Hall
This memoir is a collection of stories and thoughts that I had written for my sons. I am publishing this “lightly-edited” version for those who may have interest in knowing more about my life after reading any or all of my PD-related books. Additionally, I hope it might stimulate ideas for those who may be thinking about writing their own memoir.
Window Of Opportunity: Living with the reality of Parkinson's and the threat of dementia
by Kirk Hall
"Window of Opportunity" is the story of one person’s journey through the initial signs of cognitive impairment associated with Parkinson’s disease and the uncertainty of a future that includes a significant probability of dementia. The book is a tribute to someone who is able to maintain a positive orientation despite the threat of something as devastatingly frightening as dementia.
