About the Author

Simon McCarthy-Jones currently works as an associate professor in Clinical Psychology and Neuropsychology at Trinity College, Dublin and has over a decade of research experience regarding the topic of hearing voices.


An engaging enquiry into the psychology and neuroscience of voice hearing that explores hallucinated voices in all their fascinating forms. -- Vaughan Bell, University College London, UK
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! -- Chris Cook, Professor of Spirituality, Theology & Health at Durham University, UK
With rigorous science, penetrating analyses, colourful and enjoyable prose, and an astonishing breadth of knowledge - Simon McCarthy-Jones has delivered a book that will undeniably be appreciated by many. -- Frank Laroi, University of Bergen, Norway and University of Liege, Belgium
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, Psychosis Research Unit, Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust, UK
A brilliant and thoughtful travel into the complex experience of hearing voices. Superbly written, with intelligence, but also a delightful sense of humour, this book will become an indispensable addition to the bookshelves of clinicians, scientists and people who hear voices. -- Renaud Jardri, MD, PhD, Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Lille, France
Clinicians should recommend this volume to their patients, scientists should recommend it to their students, and voice hearers should recommend it to others in the voice hearing community. I cannot think of a better accolade than to say few would fail to benefit from reading this volume, irrespective of whether the audience is seeking answers to the experiences one is having or seeking guidance on the underlying mechanisms of voice hearing per se. -- PsycCRITIQUES * American Psychological Association *
This is a little gem of a book, and a must-have for anyone working with, living with, or curious about voices. -- Vanessa Beavan * Psychosis *
