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). There is also a useful chapter on "hypervigilance", which is something you do not realise effects you constantly (being continually on edge and unable to concentrate in case a trigger sound happens).
Personally (after reading how many people manage to do work with the condition), I've bought myself a Walkman and some noise cancelling headphones (along with some white noise/rainfall MP3s--by "Sound Dreamer" on Amazon). This has helped me to concentrate much better and (through listening to classical music in the evenings) reduced the overall time I am "hypervigilant"--and therefore the overall time that I'm stressed. I already feel much brighter--you don't realise how much this condition drags you down until you accept and start combatting its effects--but I'm also considering going to the doctor to see about CBT and/or some medication.
The most therapeutic aspect, though, is simply realising this is what you have. For that reason alone, if somebody eating or throat-clearing or lip-smacking makes you want to tear down the walls in anger then I urge you to order this book!
