When an unforeseen diagnosis of Parkinson's disease threatens the balance in Robert Baittie's life, he makes a choice that leads to a most unexpected life-altering discovery: that within everyone exists the power to heal.

Diagnosed with Parkinson's disease at the age of 52, Robert Baittie has turned a personal setback into a much stronger push forward to fight the disease with a most "unexpected" outlook. His inspiring book. "Tremors in the Universe" shares his story of how a diagnosis of a chronic illness changed his life for the better. Robert's story is not what most people have come to expect from Parkinson's disease. Robert found another way. Another way of thinking. Another way of living.
