How could I resist this book? As a librarian and a fitness enthusiast, The World's Strongest Librarian by Josh Hanagarne seemed like the perfect selection for my final blog post (I will be on temporary hiatus).
I was immediately intrigued by this title as it is not something you read about everyday. I started doing some background research on Josh Hanagarne and discovered what I believe to be a fascinating and inspirational story.
Hanagarne is a librarian who suffers from an extreme case of Tourette's syndrome. One day his father asked him to come to the gym and that day changed his life. Hanagarne talks about the transformative power strength training has had over his Tourette's and how his family, friends, teachers and books provided him with the most tremedous support system, never allowing him to give up.
The World's Strongest Librarian is set to release on May 7, 2013 — put it on hold today! I look forward to hearing what you think of The World's Strongest Librarian or any other stories about great librarians!
