This second edition of Tourette Syndrome: The Facts explains the causes of the syndrome, how it is diagnosed, and how to cope if you or a relative has been recently diagnosed. It provides information on the treatment and therapies that are available, and advice and on how individuals can manage their symptoms. It clearly explains the different presentations that can affected individuals, covering a spectrum from very mild to more uncommon severe forms of TS, and also discusses disorders that
can be mistaken for TS.

This edition contains a new chapters focussing on 'Education, employment and empowerment', and famous and successful people who achieved their goals despite their diagnosis.

Essential reading for Tourette's sufferers, their relatives and friends, Tourette's Syndrome: The Facts will also be of use to clinicians, GPs, schoolteachers, and anyone seeking an accessible introduction to the disorder.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book on tourettes 18 Feb. 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have bought 15 books on the subject of tourettes for two reasons, one my daughter has t/s and second I am studying t/s for my college project. Of all the books I have ordered this one covers everything, nice and easy to read. I recommend this to anyone who wants to know more about t/s. This is the best book.
