The human brain has a left side and a right side, and it is well-known that the two sides are programmed to perform different functions. There is also growing evidence that sexual gender, the language one first learns as a child, and the culture in which one is raised, play primary roles in determining which side of the brain is engaged at particular times. To further complicate matters, some people are left-brain oriented while others are right-brain oriented. These differences play key roles in the values, attitudes and behavior of every individual.
In this insightful and provocative book, Boy� Lafayette De Mente, known for his books on the influence of language on the cultures of China, Japan, Korea and Mexico, proposes that it is a unique left-brain right-brain factor that explains why the Japanese make such high-quality products�but have difficulty communicating with other people. He also argues that Americans and others must learn how and when to use the right sides of their brains more effectively if they are to achieve their full potential.
