Excellent! I sell nutrition for Tourette's Syndrome and have talked with hundreds of parents whose children suffer with this condition but never did I have a true understanding of it until I heard this story. What I found to be interesting is that I suggest to parents to take their children off video games because it does seem to stimulate tics and this man's tics were first noticed after playing video games and he also became very computer literate throughout his life. Very well written and very well told. I wish everyone would read it to understand just a glimmer of what children/adults with these conditions deal with on a daily basis.

I was riveted as I listened to this agonizing story of a family living with the devastating effects of tourette's syndrome. It was difficult to listen to but I'm sure much more difficult to live through. I gained an understanding of this terrible neurological disorder and empathy and compassion for those who suffer from it.
