The World's Strongest Librarian : a memoir of Tourette's, faith, strength, and the power of family
by Joshua Hanagarne
An inspiring story of how a Mormon kid with Tourette's found salvation in books and weight-lifting. By the time he was twenty, the young Mormon had reached his towering adult height of 6'7' when-while serving on a mission for the Church of Latter Day Saints-his Tourette's tics escalated to nightmarish levels.Determined to conquer his affliction, Josh underwent everything from quack remedies to lethargy-inducing drug regimes to Botox injections that paralyzed his vocal cords and left him voiceless for three years. Undeterred, Josh persevered to marry and earn a degree in Library Science.
