From the author of the groundbreaking, international bestseller The Female Brain comes the eagerly awaited follow-up which demystifies the intricacies of the male brain.
Did you know that the male brain:
* is a lean, mean problem-solving machine that uses analytical brain structures, not emotional ones, to find solutions
* thrives under competition, instinctively plays rough, and is obsessed with rank and hierarchy
* has an area for sexual pursuit that is 2.5 times larger than that of the female brain, consuming him with sexual fantasies about female body parts; and much, much more.
As Dr Louann Brizendine's impeccably researched, irresistible guide follows the male brain through every phase of life, from infancy to adulthood, it unlocks many secrets and offers fascinating insights into a range of subjects, including emotional intimacy, anger, aggression and winning.
It also provides answers to many baffling questions and exposes the often shocking gulf that exists between the sexes.
