The World's Strongest Librarian: a Memoir of Tourette's, Faith, Strength and the Power of Family by Josh Hanagarne is a beautifully written memoir.  The anecdotal stories about life as a reference librarian in Salt Lake City are amusing but, Josh's recounting of dealing with Tourette's and learning to conquer it and not let it conquer him are poignant and stick with the reader.
