Tourette syndrome is a very misunderstood disorder. It is often said to have a mind of its own. A number of excellent books have been written by healthcare professionals and by people with TS. Most are either professional observations or personal stories about brave souls who have overcome enormous odds to succeed in spite of this often debilitating disorder. This book is different. It does include a bit of autobiographical information and it provides a comprehensive view of Tourette syndrome. However, its main focus is on the mental and physical processes that occur inside a person during tics and other symptoms. This book likely provides the deepest view inside the a€œmind of Tourette syndromea€ ever published. The author, who has TS, presents an unsurpassed inside view of tics, obsessions, compulsions, intrusive thoughts, and feelings brought on by societal reaction. The book is totally honest from start to finish. It does not sugarcoat anything, it is not a a€œfeel gooda€ book and it exposes the most troubling experiences associated with this disorder. However, it also supports the reality that most people with Tourette syndrome are incredibly strong individuals who end up doing quite well in life. In addition, a link to an online version of the authora€™s documentary movie Inside Tourette Syndrome is provided. It features five adults with Tourette syndrome and it contains vivid details about what it is like to experience tics and obsessive-compulsive symptoms. No two individuals experience Tourette syndrome exactly the same. The author does not claim to speak for anyone other than himself. However, there are often similar, rarely-discussed experiences by people with TS and others with the disorder have agreed that this authora€™s descriptions are stunningly accurate. For those desiring to get a good idea of how it feels to experience the tics and other symptoms of Tourette syndrome, this book is a qmust read.q In addition, with the bonus of the included free online access to the documentary movie, this offering is a true bargain for anyone wishing to learn about Tourette syndrome.The tics sometimes caused me to break parts of the machine or bang my hands against sharp objects, creating aggravating small ... I finally decided to quit the copier repair business and focus fully on my primary occupation of playing music.
