Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

The sage who said that the first duty of love is to listen made a good start. The second, according to Who Switched Off Your Brain? author Caroline Leaf is to realize that men and women talk, hear, and act differently. Bridging the gender gap isn't just the main topic of most successful sitcoms; it's an essential part of every successful heterosexual relationship. An apt gift for new couples or for good people experiencing bumps in the road. A new book by the author of Who Switched Off My Brain?
