The World's Strongest Librarian


Book #65 Read in 2013
The World's Strongest Librarian by Josh Hanagarne

Josh is 6 foot, 7 inches tall, competes in strong man contests and has a severe case of Tourette's Syndrome.  His occupation?  A librarian.  Not exactly what one would think for a career of someone who suffers from Tourette's Syndrome and has loud, verbal tics as part of  this.  Josh loved books from a young age and learning and reading was important to him at his core, so this translated into a career as a librarian.  It was also a way for him to challenge himself to see if he could control some of his tics.  Told in a honest manner, Josh details his growing up with this syndrome, his wish for his young son and his connection to his wife and parents.  I enjoyed it.

  1. Happy to hear you liked this one. I love how humorous Hanagarne is, even in the most emotional parts of the book.
