Format: Paperback
This made so much sense! I definitely understand the male brain better. For instance, i texted one of my friends when i was feeling sad and rather than saying "oh thats too bad, do you want a hug?" He told me what to do. and i was mad. but i remembered this book and forgave him. sometimes guys are annoying because they're made that way. Great book, impossible to argue with. I will definitely read more by this author.

I use the introduction part of the audio book this as a brief part of psycho-education in men's domestic violence groups.

"[This book] draws on my twenty-five years of clinical experience as a neuropsychiatrist. It presents research findings from the advances over the past decade in our understanding of developmental neuroendocrinology, genetics, and molecular neuroscience. It offers samplings from neropsychlogy, cognitive neuroscience, child development, brain imaging, and psychoneuroendocrinology. It explores primatology, animal studies, and observation of infants, children, and teens, seeking insights into how particular behaviours are programmed into the male brain by a combination of NATURE and NURTURE."

The above comes from the author of 2006's "The Female Brain," Louann Brizendine, MD. She is a diplomate of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and is an endowed professor of clinical psychiatry at the University of California, San Francisco [UCSF]. She's also founder and director of the Women's Mood and Hormone Clinic and co-director of the UCSF Program in Sexual Medicine.

Each chapter of this book covers some of her male patients at various stages in the life cycle. At every stage such as the mischievous child, the oversexed teen, the middle-aged man who falls for a younger woman, Brizendine gives a theory for how her patient's behaviour is caused by male brain patterns, aided considerably by hormones like testosterone (which she nicknames "Zeus") and vasopressin (the "White Knight").

Brizendine chooses patients who conform to a familiar stereotype and then explains their actions as the work of Zeus and his friends. The result is that her theory is very rigid (just as is the theory she presents in her 2006 book).

In the above quotation from the book, Brizendine promises to look into "NATURE and NURTURE.

Format: Hardcover
While this is an interesting read and worth the time, I was surprised when I opened the book. While it states that the book is 304 pages long, the book itself ends at around page 140 and then it has notes and references for the final 150 pages. I could have used a little more book, and a few less notes...

My counsellor recommended this book to me. I read it in 2 days because it was so interesting. Super insightful look at the science behind the male brain, and how changes in the brain impact behaviour, motivations, and actions in men. I love how all the footnotes are at the end, so that they do not distract me as I'm reading the book. My wife also enjoyed reading the book (it helped her understand me more!)
