Review:

" This little book is a gem. ... a gold mine of information that will prove useful to physicians, psychologists, and educators, In many respects, I found the book to be as helpful as many longer erudite volumes are on the topic of Tourette syndrome, and strongly recommend it." Annals of the RCPSC (Dec 1998)

Book Description Oxford Uni Press, 1998. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Gilles de la Tourette Syndrome (or Tourette syndrome), is an inherited neuropsychiatric disorder affecting about five people in every 10,000. It is characterized by multiple motor and vocal tics which occur in bouts many times each day. These can be mild in some cases, but can reach a disabling extent in some sufferers, and can include some upsetting anti-social behaviour such as involuntary swearing and obscene gestures in others. This book, written by a psychologist and psychiatrist who have been researching Tourette syndrome for many years, explains the causes of the syndrome, how it is diagnosed, and the ways in which it can be treated. It includes a section providing clear answers to some of the most commonly-asked questions about the disorder, and another chapter devoted to discussion of coping strategies for close relatives of people diagnsed as having Tourette syndrome. Essential reading for Tourette sufferers, their relatives, and friends, Tourette Syndrome: The Facts will also be of use to clinicians, family doctors, schoolteachers, and anyone seeking an accessible introduction to the disorder.
