Can’t You Hear Them? (2017)

Can't You Hear Them“A remarkable book about voice hearing, which provides an accessible account of the science, but does not lose track of the meaning of the experience. It is compassionate, controversial and compelling!”       Prof Christopher Cook

“On finishing this book my initial instinct was to re-read it in order to appreciate its insights for a second time. Can’t You Hear Them? is not only a work of impressive scholarship but a compelling, beautifully-written story of human experience and endeavour.”   Dr Eleanor Longden


My latest book will be published on 21 April 2017.

“An engaging enquiry into the psychology and neuroscience of voice hearing that explores hallucinated voices in all their fascinating forms.”    Dr Vaughan Bell

I offered a summary of my last book for the prospective purchaser. This time round I will simply say this; my book seeks truth at multiple levels of analysis including, but not limited to, Cornel West’s vision of what an academic should do:
