I Can't Stop Shaking, Over 10 Million People are Affected By Essential Tremor, provides important medical information, tips on living with Essential Tremor, as well as personal accounts of people living with Essential Tremor. In the medical section Dr. Peter A LeWitt, a neurologist who sub-specializes in movement disorders, answers questions about Essential Tremor. Dr. LeWitt has been practicing neurology and been involved with Essential Tremor since 1980. Dr. LeWitt explains in simple terms what Essential Tremor is, how it affects people, and medical treatments for Essential Tremor. In the personal stories section people who have Essential Tremor speak candidly and openly about what life is like living with Essential Tremor. Each person has their own way of dealing with it, some with great optimism, others with equally great frustration. Readers who have Essential Tremor will no doubt see bits and pieces of themselves within these stories. There are also dozens of tips on better ways of living with Essential Tremor that will help the sufferer to better cope with their handicap. Some of the tips inside the book are: .Use an electric toothbrush. .Tell the people at your bank that you have ET .Use credit and debit cards instead of writing checks. .Use eating utensils that have large handles. .Use a 1 in.-deep dish that has vertical sides. .Hold your drinking glass in the palm of your non-dominant hand and steady it with your dominant hand. .Eat with the utensil pointing toward you with as much twist to your wrist as you can manage. Sandy Kamen Wisniewski was diagnosed with ET when she was 14 years old. During her childhood she hid her tremor by tucking her hands in her pockets or up her sleeves. She also avoided many social situations where eating in public was necessary. She spent her young adulthood unaware the so many people had Essential Tremor so she struggled alone. Then in 1999 she learned that a group of people with Essential tremor were meeting at a public library and were having a neurologist as a guest speaker. After the meeting she realized for the first time she wasn't alone. In 2001 Sandy found the courage to finally speak out about Essential Tremor and wrote a personal essay titled I Couldn't Stop Shaking, which was published in Woman's Day magazine in May 2001. Since that time she has written numerous articles on Essential Tremor, spoken to groups around the country about Essential Tremor, in addition to being interviewed on Chicago's WGN news and WLS News. She also appeared on the Debra Duncan Show, a Disney sponsored talk show, about ET. Sandy is a freelance writer, business owner, mother and wife. She resides in Libertyville, Illinois.

The doctor suddenly appeared beside Will, startling him. He was sleek and prosperous, with a dainty goatee. Though he smiled reassuringly, the poet noticed that he kept a safe distance. In a soothing, urbane voice, the physician explained the treatment: stewed prunes to evacuate the bowels; succulent meats to ease digestion; cinnabar and the sweating tub to cleanse the disease from the skin. The doctor warned of minor side effects: uncontrolled drooling, fetid breath, bloody gums, shakes and palsies. Yet desperate diseases called for desperate remedies, of course. Were Shakespeare's shaky handwriting, his obsession with venereal disease, and his premature retirement connected? Did John Milton go blind from his propaganda work for the Puritan dictator Oliver Cromwell, as he believed, or did he have a rare and devastating complication of a very common eye problem? Did Jonathan Swift's preoccupation with sex and filth result from a neurological condition that might also explain his late-life surge in creativity? What Victorian plague wiped out the entire Brontë family? What was the cause of Nathaniel Hawthorne's sudden demise? Were Herman Melville's disabling attacks of eye and back pain the product of "nervous affections," as his family and physicians believed, or did he actually have a malady that was unknown to medical science until well after his death? Was Jack London a suicide, or was his death the product of a series of self-induced medical misadventures? Why did W. B. Yeats's doctors dose him with toxic amounts of arsenic? Did James Joyce need several horrific eye operations because of a strange autoimmune disease acquired from a Dublin streetwalker? Did writing Nineteen Eighty-Four actually kill George Orwell? The Bard meets House, M.D. in this fascinating untold story of the impact of disease on the lives and works of some the finest writers in the English language. In Shakespeare's Tremor and Orwell's Cough, John Ross cheerfully debunks old biographical myths and suggests fresh diagnoses for these writers' real-life medical mysteries. The author takes us way back, when leeches were used for bleeding and cupping was a common method of cure, to a time before vaccinations, sterilized scalpels, or real drug regimens. With a healthy dose of gross descriptions and a deep love for the literary output of these ten greats, Ross is the doctor these writers should have had in their time of need.

The Tremor of Forgery is considered by many to be Patricia Highsmith's finest novel. Set in Tunisia in the mid-1960s, it is the story of Howard Ingham, an American writer who has gone abroad to gather material for a movie too sordid to be set in America. Ingham is cool towards Ina, the girlfriend he left behind in New York, but his feelings start to change when she doesn't answer his increasingly aggravated letters, and John Castlewood, the filmmaker who hired Ingham, fails to show in Tunisia. Amid the tea shops and alleys of the souk, the sun-blasted architecture, and the beaches and hotels frequented by international tourists, will Ingham’s morality survive the withering heat? Includes an introduction by Francine Prose.
