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.
