Brad Cohen wrote Front of the Class as an inspirational story about the underdog defying the odds. The story begins with Cohen as a young child learning he has Tourette Syndrome to an end where he becomes the teacher he never had. The inspiring true story of incredible challenge and unwavering determination is prefect of anyone who has been told they cannot do what everyone else can because they are different. Much more than a book on growing up with Tourette’s, Cohen’s book goes into the mind of how everyone can make a difference in this world. Living with Tourette Syndrome can be a challenge at times, but Brad believes he has overcome his disability by living life to its fullest. This award winning book is currently available in hard cover and paperback.

Brad has also assisted in the writing of Getting Personal, a series of twenty-two stories about living with Tourette syndrome.

Front of the Class was the 2005 Independent Publisher’s Education Book of The Year Award winner (IPPY) and named the Best Eduction trade book by ForeWord magazine.
