“Deep Brain Diary”: AVAILABLE NOW!

Posted Mar 09 2010 9:52am

OK, I’ve approved the proof, I redesigned the cover.  And now, “Deep Brain Diary: My Life as a Guy with Parkinson’s Disease and Brain Surgery Volunteer” is ready and available for purchase at Lulu.com — in six to eight weeks, it will also be available at online book resellers nationwide.

As I explained in yesterday’s post, I am contributing 100% of the author proceeds from this book to the research funding efforts of the National Parkinson Foundation as they search for new and better treatments and, ultimately, a cure for Parkinson’s disease — which afflicts about 1.5 million Americans — with 50,000 new diagnoses each year.

The hardcover book retails for $30.  If you buy it from Lulu, the author’s cut is $9.71.  So, that’s a $9.71 donation to the National Parkinson Foundation.

If you wait to buy it from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or care to order from a brick & mortar type book store (which you will be able to do in 6-8 weeks), it will still cost you $30.  But the author cut is only 91 cents.  That’s a 91 cent donation to National Parkinson Foundation.

So, if you’re at all interested in buying the book, and you want the National Parkinson Foundation to get the most from your purchase, the time to buy a copy of “Deep Brain Diary” is RIGHT NOW!

I’m excited about this, and I’m excited about the good we can do, in a small way perhaps, to assist the National Parkinson Foundation find a cure for Parkinson’s disease.

And thanks!
