What Makes You Tic? My Journey From Tourette’s To Tolerance

Imagine standing in an airport security line and yelling, “Bomb, bomb, bomb!” A normal person would never dare to do this. For Marc Elliot, this kind of thing was a daily occurrence! “What Makes You Tic?” chronicles Marc’s incredible journey growing up with two major health defects: an intestinal disease and Tourette syndrome. Through his raw openness, candid stories and hilarious anecdotes, Marc reveals what it was like growing up as the boy who always stood out, who never fit in, and who always annoyed people, despite wanting more than anything else to be normal. Drawing on his experiences of being so different, he shares his lessons on tolerance, which have made him a wildly popular inspirational speaker. His message is sure to help us all take a deep breath, relax and have a good laugh. The peace of mind he has discovered is infectious.
