From the Back Cover
In" The Female Brain, Dr. Brizendine distills all of this information in a highly accessible way in order to educate women about their unique brain-body-behavior. For instance, why are women more verbal than men? Why do women remember details of fights that men can't remember at all? Why do women tend to form deeper bonds with their female friends than men do with their male counterparts? Dr. Brizendine explores these questions and many others that have stumped the sexes throughout the ages.
This revolutionary book combines two decades of Brizendine's own work, real-life stories from her clinical practice, and all of the latest information from the scientific community at large to provide a truly comprehensive look at the way women's minds work.

But this book hooked me after reading on a little further.
I liked the objective approach to the age old debate on nature vs nurture. And I think this is a great book for men to understand the women in their lives more, and women to understand themselves on a deeper level, as well as some insights into the men in their lives.
I’d suggest this book to anyone of any age and of any sex.
It has changed my own understanding of my own brain and the women around me.
Worth a read for women or men who would like to understand the women in their life better.
