Format: Hardcover
Editor Tyler's book on Tinnitus is aimed at consumers with little or no knowledge about Tinnitus. That being said, it eventually works into more sophisticated topics. The good news here is that the book is nicely organized, allowing one to proceed through it in an orderly fashion, or jump around to the topics of interest.

Basics: hardback with dustjacket, 282 pp, 1.5 pounds, b&w illustrations. Glossary. Index.

Perhaps the strongest aspect of this book is that it combines medical information alongside tales of people who have suffered from Tinnitus.

The book begins with an Overview chapter and then proceeds to Causes of Tinnitus and a particularly lucid chapter on the neural mechanisms of the diseases. After this, there are three chapters about what sort of reactions human beings have to the disease and a broad but quite relatable discussion which has the generic title "Your Life and Tinnitus." I found this to be the real "meat" of the book, providing lots of examples and tales of patients written in informative yet friendly prose.

After this, the book provides several chapters which outline treatment options and coping mechanisms with particular focus paid to the issue of Tinnitus and sleep and the effect Tinnitus can have on concentration.

The closing chapters were the least interesting to me, but "What to Expect from Your Physician and Healthcare Professionals" provided some basic content which some readers might find valuable.

This book was purchased for my son who has tinnitus. He has read other books that suggested supplements to heal his condition, which is fine. However, this book is more complete. This book has contributing doctors from around the world that are experts in this field of medicine. The book is broken down into 14 chapters with a quick review in the front of the book. This allows you to chose the chapter you need. You can read it all the way through or skip to what you want to research at a particular time. I highly recommend this book. It gave my son hope for understanding his options.

Tinnitus is a pernicious condition for which there really is no cure in most cases. Supplements that promise solutions really don't deliver. As a physician friend of mine told me, "If there were a miracle product that could cure this chronic affliction, every doctor would be prescribing it." The book tells it like it is and gives suggestions for living with the persistent hissing, buzzing, or ringing in the ears that doesn't come from an outside stimulus. I would recommend purchasing a Marpac Dohm-DS Dual Speed Sound Conditioner through Amazon. The device provides "white noise" that enables a tinnitus sufferer to sleep. Difficulty sleeping is one of the main complaints associated with this malady.

The book provides good basic information, but comes way short of answers. Books on Mindfulness Therapy are much better. You have to learn to distract your thoughts away from the screaming tinnitus. It takes patients and practice. Tinnitus will always be there. Mindfulness is a tool not a cure.

If you are experiencing tinnitus, or knows someone that does, then this book is highly recommended. It has been compiled by many well respected credible scientists all over the world that are recognised experts on tinnitus. The content is very comprehensive and well written in understandable consumer language. Every aspect of tinnitus is covered, and having viewed many books and ebooks, I can honestly say that I feel this book will certainly help a tinnitus sufferer more than anything else available at present.

To the authors I can only say this, "Thank you for so freely sharing your valuable knowledge, and God Bless".

It's an compliation from a number of "authors", each very knowledgeable about their individual topic/chapter.
I'm trying one of the suggested treatment.
