It provides information on the treatment and therapies that are available, and advice and on how individuals can manage their symptoms. It clearly explains the different presentations that can affected individuals, covering a spectrum from very mild to more uncommon severe forms of TS, and also discusses disorders that can be mistaken for TS.

This edition contains a new chapters focussing on 'Education, employment and empowerment', and famous and successful people who achieved their goals despite their diagnosis.
