A Mind of Its Own: Tourette's Syndrome - A Story and a Guide by Ruth D. Bruun
Tourette's syndrome is an unusual medical condition with a host of possible symptoms, some of which have caught the attention of the media such as the involuntary use of profanities. The condition has long baffled physicians searching for scientific explanations for its causes and symptoms. A Mind of its Own: Understanding Tourette's Syndrome meets the need for a comprehensive text on the syndrome suitable for patients, their families, and the general reader. The book presents factual information illustrated by means of a fictional case history about a typical Tourette's syndrome sufferer which will make it accessible to the lay reader, and particuarly suitable for parents and patients themselves.
