Although hearing voices is often considered to be an unequivocal symptom of mental illness - and of schizophrenia in particular - research described in this book reveals that it is in fact a rather common human experience. HEARING VOICES contains a wealth of information which will be of great practical value to those who simply wish to learn more about this fascinating aspect of human psychology. In addition to its undoubted practical efulness, it adDr.esses many complex questions regarding personal identity, the nature of conscioness, the relationship between mind and brain, and the place of spirituality in human life - issues which will be of interest to all thoughtful readers.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent broad view of hearing voices Feb. 28 2011
By Vonny - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My son deals with schizophrenia and hears voices. Although his voices are connected with a mental illness, because of this book and others, I can see that hearing voices alone doesn't mean that a person is mentally ill. It's an interesting perspective to question if the mental illness causes the voices or the other way around. I find especially useful the chapters about strategies to deal with voices and living with voices. Anyone who hears voices or knows someone who does should read this book.

I was not aware of how frequently people hear voices, people who do not have diagnosable mental illnesses! I am still reading the book, more than halfway however, and have recommended it to other clinicians in our clinic. I have heard my name called, outside of me, two or three times in my own life!

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't hesitate to buy Dec 17 2013

Why? Because as a formerly certified counselor (I am retired) who still doesn't believe we know much about what's termed mental illness, and the DSM (I withhold comment), open your mind and read this book.
