Finally, a satisfying answer to Freud's question: what does a woman want? Louann Brizendine has done a great favour 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 Sassy, witty, reassuring and great fun. All women and the men who love them, should read this book -- Christiane Northrup, Author Of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom Timely, insightful, readable and an altogether magnificent book -- Sarah Hardy, Author Of Mother Nature An eye-opening account of the biological foundations of human behaviour. Destined to become a classic... -- Marilyn Yalom, Author Of A History Of The Wife Ranging from sex to breast-feeding, fights to teenage girls, Brizendine communicates in a fresh, engaging style, explaining the structure of the brain, which determines women's thoughts, values and communication skills. A fantastic guide from a heavyweight academic. Good Book Guide

She also reveals the neurological explanations behind why...


* A woman remembers fights that a man insists never happened...


* Thoughts about sex enter a woman's brain perhaps once every couple of days, but mayenter a man's brain up to once every minute...


* A woman's brain goes on high alert during pregnancy - and stays that way long after giving birth...


* A woman over 50 is more likely to initiate divorce than a man...


* Women tend to know what people are feeling, while men can't spot an emotion unless someone cries or threatens them with bodily harm!



Accessible, fun and compelling, and based on more than three decades of research, The Female Brain will help women to better understand themselves - and the men in their lives.

From the Back Cover

Did you know that every brain begins as a female brain and that it only becomes male eight weeks after conception? This is when excess testosterone shrinks the communication centre, reduces the hearing cortex and makes the part of the brain that processes sex twice as large. In this groundbreaking guide, Dr Louann Brizendine describes how the uniquely flexible structure of the female brain determines not only how women think and what they value, but how they communicate and whom they will love. Based on decades of research, and complete with fascinating facts and case studies, she also provides the neurological explanations behind why … A woman uses about 20,000 words a day at home, while a man uses about 7,000A woman remembers fights that a man insists never happenedThoughts about sex enter a woman’s brain perhaps once a day but may sometimes enter a man’s brain every minuteA woman over fifty is more likely to initiate divorce than a man … and whyA woman tends to know what people are feeling, while a man can’t seem to spot an emotion unless someone cries or threatens bodily harm With this authoritative, accessible, fun guide, women will discover that they have a lean, mean communicating machine at their disposal – and men will find that they finally have a key to understanding their relationships with women. ‘Finally, a satisfying answer to Freud’s question, “What does a woman want?” A breezy and enlightening guide to women – and a must-read for men.’ Daniel Goleman, author of Social Intelligence
