    I read this book when I was first diagnosed with Tourette's and it was a great comfort to me to know I wasn't alone. The science in the book is outdated, but it's 30 years old!

    I've found most books about Tourette Syndrome, and the reason I've avoided reading any till now, concentrate on children. My boyfriend has Tourette Syndrome and I wanted to know more about the experiences of adults with Tourette's. This book does that... mostly. There are some fascinating stories and amazing descriptions of compulsive behavior and the feeling of holding in tics but there are some juvenile stories which really didn't grab me and a few stories that seem to lack any editing at all, I've found most books about Tourette Syndrome, and the reason I've avoided reading any till now, concentrate on children.

    This book is very useful to anyone who has dealings with a person with Tourette Syndrome, however it suffered badly from a lack of editing.

    Horrible and uninteresting. The idea was right though. It sounded like it would be really good.
