Review: The World's Strongest Librarian: A Memoir of Tourette's, Faith, Strength, and the Power of Family

The World's Strongest Librarian: A Memoir of Tourette's, Faith, Strength, and the Power of Family The World's Strongest Librarian: A Memoir of Tourette's, Faith, Strength, and the Power of Family by Josh Hanagarne
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The World's Strongest Librarian is a story of determination and faith in oneself. I knew a bit about Tourette syndrome and met several people with various levels of the condition, but never realize the emotional impact on the person. Josh Hanagarme put in words the range of emotions experienced by people afflicted by this condition and this was an eye opener. I have a hard time imagining not having control of my body and not knowing when it will involuntary move or vocalize. I have now great respect and admiration for Tourette patients’ courage and perseverance.

This book is not meant to be a cure guide for the condition; it is a story that will encourage anyone with severe health conditions to never give up in their quest to a healthy life. The book is written in good humour and is a quick read.
