I received a digital copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I've had tinnitus for about 3 years now, and it started out of seemingly nowhere. A weird staticky hum in my right ear that sounded like a cord drawing power. Then a few days later it was constant. I went to three different ENTs to find out what caused it, and more importantly, how to get rid of it. For those unaware of tinnitus, there's pretty much no cure for it, just management.

I read the Tinnitus Toolbox

I'm 66 and I've been suffering from tinnitus since the age of 12.

I've found this book interesting for 2 reasons. It helps to differentiate the different kinds of tinnitus and to know what can be the causes of each of them, as well as how to relieve them, if not heal them completely.

I learned that my tinnitus is getting worse because of high blood pressure. When I don't have hypertension, my tinnitus is limited to a very bearable hiss. Otherwise, it's thunder in my ears and it's hellish. It's im

As an Ausiologist, I see many clients who live with tinnitus, hyperacusis, etc. This book has expanded my knowledge in this area and will enable me to better assist my clients on a daily basis. Jan has written this book at a level that is easy for everyone to understand. I found the introduction was personal and was a good foundation for the book. She shares some of her own experiences which makes the material more relatable.

This book is an essential resource for clients and professionals. Jan is an audiologist who has lived the experience of tinnitus and sound tolerance, developing useful strategies along the way. She is able to communicate her understanding of these complex issues in a way that any of us can understand.

Knowledge is power. Jan gave me the comprehensive knowledge required to properly manage my hyper-ears. I’m not crazy after all! I now understand, the unfounded fears have been adressed, I can get on with my life! Jan does not talk down to us, she is on our level. Read this book and insist that your audiology clinic make it available to all clients.

I received an advance copy of this book at no cost and with no obligation to the author.

II have lived with tinnitus for over 30 years and I was excited to read this book and get at least some relief from this chronic condition. After I have read it, I believe I need to look elsewhere and see a doctor and a licensed Audiologist, should my tinnitus start bothering me more. The book is meant to be a toolbox from which a tinnitus sufferer can choose and try the best options available for the individual. For that purpose, I neither find this toolbox well organized, nor professionally wr ...more

This book is incredibly comprehensive; basically a lifetime's worth of hard work studying. It's a compilation of every fact of the matter, as well as personal insights. My father has a serious tinnitus problem (he calls it head-noise), and we have been looking for help for many years. This toolbox is really helpful.

Thorough and readable Tinnitus Toolbox Hyperacusis Handbook covers all the bases for anyone looking for information about this condition. It helps to explain the condition and what the treatment options are so that you know where to go to get help, what questions to ask, and what you can do to help yourself. I would recommend this book to anyone who is suffering from "hearing crickets" like I did for years!

Tinnitus Toolbox Hyperacusis Handbook
by Jan L. Mayes

Having Tinnitus I thought this book would be helpful and informative. But, I found this is not your everyday reading material. It presented itself as a more scientific journal than an self help guide. It did offer some suggestions on dealing with the Tinnitus for sleeping, that can be useful. But overall this book is a difficult read for the average person.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions
