A Riveting Read

Against Medical Advice by James Patterson and Hal Friedman
5 Stars

Wow. I mean, really. Wow. Cory Friedman's life is out of control-- very out of control. Since he was nearly 5. You see, Cory has Tourrettes.... and OCD... and Anxiety.
This is Cory's story, told from his perspective. And it's a true story. When doctor after doctor and medicine after medicine can't help him, Cory's family decide for a more drastic, unconventional option.
I seriously read this in an afternoon. I put it down only when I absolutely had to. Cory's story is fascinating, and, as a mother, heartwrenching. But Cory's triumph is truly inspiring.
