Navigating Life With a Neurological Disorder


Finally, a book about misophonia!!!  By E. Altman
 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.

you HAVE to read this book if you or someone in your life is bothered by sounds. By sanjeether 

The first generally available book ever to explain what's going on in the brain with this condition. Please, please, please read this book, and talk about it; just knowing what the condition is helps tremendously with how it affects you. My life could have been so different if I knew .

It has a Name,,,,Who knew? By Victoria

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 thisjewel 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!!

Very important and insightful first solid book on Misophonia. By Michael Lawrence
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 Ido now. 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.

An important contribution to science. By Ross Rottier
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 empathy 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 book is available at It is also available in the EU through and in Canada from Caversham Booksellers.

"Sound-Rage. A Primer of the Neurobiology and Psychology of a Little Known Anger Disorder,"  describes the disorder, its neurological basis, and ways to manage it. Published in 2013, it has sold thousands of copies, world-wide.  In 2017, the book's identification of the area of the brain that is dysfunctioning was verified by a university study.
