Knotted Tongues: Stuttering in History & the Quest for a Cure
Benson Bobrick (au). More than 2 million Amer. -- more than 55 million people worldwide -- stutter. Though their malady has been subject to endless analysis for over 2,500 years, most endure it without hope of a cure. Famous figures through the ages -- Moses, Charles I, Lewis Carroll, Winston Churchill, & Marilyn Monroe among them -- have also known the isolation & trauma of living with knotted tongues. In this fascinating & original social history, Bobrick explores one of the most confounding mysteries in medical history, its impact on the lives of the afflicted, & the bizarre therapeutic practices it has spawned. Mounting evidence indicates that stuttering is a neurological problem. And while a definitive remedy remains elusive, certain techniques are effective.
