Overview

From the author of the groundbreaking New York Times bestseller The Female Brain, here is the eagerly awaited follow-up book that demystifies the puzzling male brain.

Dr. Louann Brizendine, the founder of the first clinic in the country to study gender differences in brain, behavior, and hormones, turns her attention to the male brain, showing how, through every phase of life, the "male reality" is fundamentally different from the female one. Exploring the latest breakthroughs in male psychology and neurology with her trademark accessibility and candor, she reveals that the male brain:

     *is a lean, mean, problem-solving machine. Faced with a personal problem, a man will use his analytical brain structures, not his emotional ones, to find a solution. 

     *thrives under competition, instinctively plays rough and is obsessed with rank and hierarchy. 

     *has an area for sexual pursuit that is 2.5 times larger than the female brain, consuming him with sexual fantasies about female body parts.

     *experiences such a massive increase in testosterone at puberty that he perceive others' faces to be more aggressive.

The Male Brain finally overturns the stereotypes. Impeccably researched and at the cutting edge of scientific knowledge, this is a book that every man, and especially every woman bedeviled by a man, will need to own.

Praise for The Female Brain:

"Louann Brizendine has done a great favor for every man who wants to understand the puzzling women in his life. A breezy and enlightening guide to women and a must-read for men."

—Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence

For Women, this book provides insight into why Men appear to be "crazy". We're not. We're just not Women. For Men, the explanations of brain structures and biochemical activity, coupled with the anecdotal stories from counseling sessions, provide insight and awareness into why we're ready to go after that idiot in traffic, push back against opposition, and fight for our perceived turf. We may not be able to stop our immediate reactions, but we can learn to get on top of it.

If you interact with other humans, this book is very useful. It may help ease the tension in a relationship as the reader figures out some of the reasons men and women are different. Doesn't offer men excuses, but does proffer some reasons :) Easy to read, lighthearted, and relevant.

In depth without being full of techno babble. Definitely in crease your understanding of self and others with this book. All while providing great insight and some laughs as you think back to your own personal experiences in life.

This book is a must read for husbands and wives, fathers and mothers. If you have anything to do with the male of the species, this well researched and presented material will help you sleep better. It ranks right up there with The Female Brain. Thank you Dr. Brizendine! I've read both of them to my wife, and we only wish we could have had this better understanding when we started our marriage 45 years ago.

I think that this is a good book for females to read because before i read this book i never trusted guys because i was always getting dumped so i only thought of them as cold hearted males who only wanted sex. but now that i am reading this book my whole perspective on guys has changed. I also think that guys should read the book The Female Brain that way they can understand us better to. I also think that (since i am a female teenager) they should have kids in high school read this so that we will understand eachother better. Cause i thiught that if we all understood eachother that there wouldnt be so much drama. - Dawn Funk
