Against Medical Advice by James Patterson

Watch for James Patterson's newest book and his first non-fiction, Against Medical Advice coming October 20th!
Here is short description of the book:

The dramatic true account of one family's struggle with a tormenting medical mystery.
One morning when he was almost five years old, Cory Friedman woke up with the uncontrollable urge to shake his head. From that day forward his life became an agony of irrepressible tics and involuntary utterances. Cory embarked on a fifteen-year odyssey of medication upon medication, treatment upon treatment–a constantly changing regimen that left him and his family feeling like guinea pigs in an out-of-control experiment. It soon became unclear which tics were symptoms of his condition and which were side effects of the countless combinations of drugs. The only certainty was that it kept getting worse. Simply put: Cory Friedman's life was a living hell.

Look for this in bookstores on October 20th! To read an excerpt go to http://www.jamespatterson.com/books_againstMedicalAdvice.html
