"A new edition of James Patterson's 'Against Medical Advice'. Includes bonus features!"--P.[4] of cover

Includes interviews with Cory Friedman and Cory's father, Hal Friedman

"First published in hardcover under the title Against Medical Advice in October 2008 by Little, Brown and Company."--T.p. verso

Cory Friedman woke up one morning when he was five years old with the uncontrollable urge to twitch his neck. From that day forward his life became a hell of irrepressible tics and involuntary utterances, and Cory embarked on an excruciating journey from specialist to specialist to discover the cause of his disease. Soon it became unclear what tics were symptoms of his disease and what were side effects of the countless combinations of drugs. The only certainty is that it kept getting worse. This is the true story of Cory and his family's decades-long battle for survival in the face of extraordinary difficulties and a maddening medical establishment
