I haven't seen the print version, but I very much enjoyed the audio book.
Your Brain at Work, and Spark - due to the information about how the brain works along with the biology behind behavior - fascinating.
Her own voice is great, and the emphasis of words, etc. comes across clearly.
Female Brains got it going on!
I found the book to be very informational. It is full of research and the author tries to make all that data still interesting, but the reader was almost unbearably difficult for me to listen to. She has a very "ditzy" tone to her voice and "mones" her words often. I can usually listen to a book for about 6 hours on end if it is interesting while I am at work, but I had to take frequent breaks with this one. Book was somewhat insightful, but if your hoping to understand women better... your search will be long and hard. This book is definitely not the end all.
I'd say the book was a little better than two, but definitely not a three star listen.
Dr. Brizendine has two volumes available through Audible "The Female Brain" and "The Male Brain." In each she brings the listener up to speed on the current neuroresearch related to differentials in gender behaviors. This volume will help women better understand themselves and men to better related to wives, girl friends, and female coworkers. Dr. Brizendine reads very well and the writing good. The book is very useful.
I gave this book 5 stars because this book helps me tremendously, it helps me understand why men and women behave differently, think differently and see differently, it has the potential of saving relationships and heartaches. Highly recommended for guys trying to understand their significant other and themselves.
I have never given reviewed before but I feel like I should for this book because it is so enlightening .. This is a must read for all the woman and for men as well .. This is definitely the female brain book ..
This is a very interesting book, and I think it gives a good understanding of some of the forces that make women different from men. The narrator was awful though, and I agree that you feel like you're being read to by a kindergarten teacher. If you can overlook that, the book is worth your time.
Yes , Because I am shure I would pick up on some parts I missed the first time.
The details of the story
YES! Loved the book when I read it loved the book when I listened to it!
No other book compares when it comes to WOMENS neuroscience.
I couldnt choose.
Obsesively listened to it.
I have listened to this book and found it fascinating.I am a man living with two teenage daughters and partner, so life can be tough in this house of girls.If some one creates a hormonal control device that can balance the release of female hormones, they will not only win the Nobel Prize for Science but also the Nobel Peace Prize.They can have my house and i-pad too. Happy days!
Louann reads the book with a lovely warm voice full of sincerity.
I just bought her book on the male brain even though I already know it all!
