Book Description

23 Jun 2013
Sound-Rage, commonly known as “Misophonia,” is a little known disorder characterized by an anger response to certain sounds. Gum popping, food chewing, nose sniffing, pen clicking… fingers pointing, legs swinging, hair twirling…. For the vast majority of people, these sounds and sights are meaningless. For a small minority of the population, these sounds and sights are triggers that lead to instant rage and set off a physiological urge to flee. The primer presents groundbreaking research on the neurobiology and psychology of the disorder, and provides compelling evidence that “Sound-Rage” is a neurological, developmental disorder that alters neural processes in the brain. It discusses why cognitive behavior therapy is the most effective treatment for reducing symptoms.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timley, engaging and enlightening overview. 16 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase
I didn't even know I suffered this until a few weeks ago. It is a difficult illness to diagnose, for you tend to see your "sound rage" as a bi-product of stress rather than the other way around. After reading this book, though, it all falls into place and you can see how it keeps you in a Gordian knot of anxiety and stress.

The book is in three parts. An overview of the illness (which includes many examples of people describing how it effects their life--the best part of the book for me); the middle section is a psychological analysis of the condition using modern psychological models; and finally there is a very useful section detailing possible treatments and therapy.

As I say, the most useful thing for me was simply reading about others experiences and realising how much of it is relevant to what you experience. So many times, I thought "my god, yes, that's just what it is like!" If nothing else, this section will give you the confidence to establish you do have this disorder (which in itself is a huge relief after years or thinking you were crazy!)

The middle section, for me, was something I skimmed through initially. I was more concerned with learning how to deal with it than the science as to why it is happening. It does provide a detailed analysis, though, and should be read later, when you have decided on some form of management plan.

Unfortunately there is no current "cure" for Misophonia. The author does recommend several therapies (in the final section), though, that can help to reduce the symptoms (such as CBT, medication and mindfulness meditation).

5.0 out of 5 stars It has a Name,,,,Who knew? 18 Sep 2013
By Victoria - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
For decades, the sound of a spoon clicking against a china tea cup has set my nerves on edge, prompting me to take my leave or take the offender to task...or both. Ordinary sounds, such as running water from a faucet or keys tapping against a dashboard test my self control to the limit. And now this jewel of a book reveals that help is here by way of public interest, research, therapy, etc. Ranging from technical to touching, the author insists the reader share her excitement in discovery. I feel informed, hopeful and grateful!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, a book about misophonia!!! 2 Sep 2013
By E. Altman - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I've suffered with misophonia for over thirty years and I was so excited to read this book. Once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down! I could relate to so much of what Krauthamer wrote that I even put colored sticky tabs at all the sentences that really hit home with me. It's more highlighted than any of my curriculum books from undergrad/grad school!

In addition to the diverse supporting examples as told by other sufferers, Krauthamer delves into the science of the condition; but explains it in such a way that it is understandable by the layperson (like myself) as well. As frustrating as misophonia is to experience, it's exciting to know that the author is helping to promote more awareness about the condition. I've already given a copy to my parents and plan to buy additional copies to give to my employer, key doctors with whom I sought help but who knew nothing about the condition, and other people in my life to help them understand what I'm going through!

Kudos Judith, and thanks for publishing such a helpful book!

5.0 out of 5 stars A important contribution to science 28 Aug 2013
By Ross Rottier - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Sound rage is a ground-breaking and methodical study of a formerly unspecified condition that I believe is common. Defining sound rage as Ms Krauthamer does while describing specific symptoms is very useful for addressing the condition. Her emphasis on anger vs a violent response is insightful and helpful in understanding the role of emphathy in therapy. She provides a well-thought-out comparison to recognized mental disorders and specifies clearly how sound rage is unique. She has delved into a new and important aspect of psychology. I know several people in my world who suffer from the condition. How to get them to read the book? Ms Krauthamer has provided the worlds of science and psychology with a gift. It is very possible that natural survival instincts that serve us well in the wilderness (listening for the snapping of twigs as indicators of predator approach) don't adapt well to our modern, boxed-in society with noisy movie theaters and chewing gum snappers.

The study of sound rage is incomplete, by the author's own words, and she emphasizes that this is a beginning. first define the condition, show how it compares and contrasts to other well specified illnesses and then begin the study of best therapies. Her logic in this way is remarkable. That's why I rank this book with 5 stars and recommend it to all who study the human mind and seek to advance their understanding of human psychology.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very important and insightful first solid book on Misophonia 30 Aug 2013
By Michael Lawrence - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I have suffered with Misophonia (Sound-Rage) for 55 years. Suffered in silence and shame since I didn't know what it was or that it had a name. But I do now.
It is clearly a neurological disorder (not a hearing condition) and must be understood and treated as such if it will ever be cured. Ms. Krauthamer has done a
wonderful job of making this complex condition more understandable. Great insights into how the brain works and how this condition most likely operates. Many
more studies will be needed to completely understand Misophonia and the author does an admirable job, after a year of research, of making this more understandable.
I hope she writes a follow-up as more information becomes available. My hat is off to Judith T. Krauthamer for her interesting and readable primer into Misophonia.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sound Rage - In My Opinion 19 Aug 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I ordered the book for a variety of reasons but mainly because I was intrigued by the topic. I was extremely pleased with the content as well as the presentation. Judith makes an accurate and compelling argument for the scientific legitimacy around the genesis of and subsequent patterns that are associated with, this disorder.

The facts and the human stories were written in a manner that everyone understands, whether or not you have any knowledge of this subject matter. Whether or not you are a researcher, scientist, clinician or layman.

Straightforward, informative, engaging and factual are all words I would use to describe this book. The authenticity with which the story is told is evident. I would recommend this book again and again. Kudos!
