“The World’s Strongest Librarian: A Memoir of Tourette’s, Faith, Strength, and the Power of Family” by Josh Hanagarne.
I have not read this so I can’t tell you if it’s any good or not, but the idea of an inspiring story about a man overcoming his disability sounds like a promising read, especially when pared with the love of books.
On his website he says of himself, “I am an aspiring strongman, bookish nerd, twitchy guy with Tourette’s Syndrome, devoted family man, tearer of phonebooks, and humble librarian. A tall, thin paradox wrapped in thick glasses.”
The book will be published by by Gotham Books and is due out on May 2, 2013.
What are your thoughts on this book? On memoirs overcoming obstacles? I liked the part in the trailer where he said he didn’t consider himself a hero. In my opinion, a true hero is always humble.
