Robert E. Spekman, the Tayloe Murphy professor of business administration emeritus at the Darden Graduate School of Business at the University of Virginia, has completed his new book “My Journey with Parkinson's Disease”: an enlightening narrative conveying to the readers a message of hope amid overwhelming afflictions.

Author Spekman shares his personal journey with the disease and its significance to his transformation: “I could no longer measure my worth by the gold standard I
had used previously; it did not fit and was too limiting. I have other riches to give and to receive. I sacrificed the intangible for the tangible and probably was less rich as a result. I have always thought of myself as a happy person. Yet the PD that I let rule me had taken a great deal from me. If I am constantly monitoring my actions and the reactions of others, I find it difficult to smile and relax.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Robert E. Spekman’s heartwarming tale declares the importance of valuing one’s life and treasuring every second of it. Some things may be hard to accept, but with understanding and guidance, one can begin to see the light of everything and make the most out of them.

Readers who wish to experience this page-turning work can purchase “My Journey with Parkinson's Disease” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
