I loved The World's Strongest Librarian by Josh Hanagarne for many reasons! The author's stories of working in the Salt Lake City public library system rang true with my own library experiences. He articulates so beautifully the reasons that libraries are important and relevant to society. But more importantly this is a touching and candid memoir of the author's life journey as a man with Tourette Syndrome and how he learned to cope with its effects on his way to being an appreciative husband, concerned and loving father, faithful son and awesome librarian. The title refers to the author's use of weight training as a way of dealing with Tourette Syndrome. It offers the most beautiful portrait of a supportive set of parents that I've ever read. It touches honestly on his questions about his faith and gave me some insights into the Mormon church. I'm going to follow his blog to keep up with this wonderfully decent human being.
