In this groundbreaking book, Dr Louann Brizendine describes the uniquely flexible structure of the female brain and its constant, dynamic state of change - the key difference that separates it from that of the male - and reveals how women think, what they value, how they communicate, and whom they?ll love. 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.


For you and your partner ...


This book really teaches you in a very simple way the difference between the female brain and the male brain which is alot by the way ! It helps you to be more understanding to different sittuations and be able to look at scenarios and empathise more from each perspective. I believe this will make my relationships easier ,make me more self aware and even in the future i think it will come in handy for understanding children



Thought provoking!


My daughter gave me this book to read. It was very thought provoking and also made me reflect back on my life as a child, teenager, wife and mother. I would encourage all women to read it.

To know is to understand


Just the book that every shocked, perplexed, frustrated and damaged male needs to have to understand and fight what is happening to their beloved life partner while she negotiates menopause.



Provides an incredible insight into the female brain!


This book was incredible. The chapters cover the various stages of a woman's life and provide incredible information about why we (women) do the things we do. I'm currently passing this book around all my pregnant friends and they love it!
