Shake Well Before Use
Tom Isaacs was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease at the age of 27. After 7 years with the illness, he is unable to walk at all without the aid of medication which itself cannot be relied upon. Given this background what on earth would possess him to attempt to walk 4,500 miles around Britain’s coastline, a feat only achieved by a very few healthy people?
‘Shake Well Before Use’ is a story of two journeys: one an extraordinary physical achievement; and the other a quest for acceptance and fulfilment in the face of a debilitating and devastating condition which affects the lives of millions of people around the world.
‘Shake Well Before Use’ is the tale of how one man learned to live with, and laugh at, the ravages of Parkinson’s disease. Tom Isaacs’ courage, determination and infectious zest for life are an inspiration to us all. His is a story that will leave you uplifted and entertained.
