This book shares stories of suffering and exile, as well as stories about creating a fruitful and satisfying life. For individuals and families. An Unlikely Strength shows what its like to be viewed by the "normal" world, and how Touretters have come to the powerful self-realization that Tourette syndrome is not who they are -- they are free to create themselves and follow their own true path."--provided by
