    From the author of the groundbreaking New York Times bestseller The Female Brain, here is the eagerly awaited follow-up book that demystifies the puzzling male brain.
     
    Dr. Louann Brizendine, the founder of the first clinic in the country to study gender differences in brain, behavior, and hormones, turns her attention to the male brain, showing how, through every phase of life, the "male reality" is fundamentally different from the female one. Exploring the latest breakthroughs in male psychology and neurology with her trademark accessibility and candor, she reveals that the male brain:

         *is a lean, mean, problem-solving machine. Faced with a personal problem, a man will use his analytical brain structures, not his emotional ones, to find a solution. 

         *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 the female brain, consuming him with sexual fantasies about female body parts.

         *experiences such a massive increase in testosterone at puberty that he perceive others' faces to be more aggressive.


    The Male Brain finally overturns the stereotypes. Impeccably researched and at the cutting edge of scientific knowledge, this is a book that every man, and especially every woman bedeviled by a man, will need to own.

    Praise for The Female Brain:
    "Louann Brizendine has done a great favor for every man who wants to understand the puzzling women in his life. A breezy and enlightening guide to women and a must-read for men."
    —Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence
     
         
     
     


    From the Hardcover edition.

    Daren says: "Facts mixed with interpretation"
    "A must read 4 men & women!"
    Overall

    I really loved this book - explaining so many things about "how I acted" in the past or "male act" in general. Absolutely interesting, especially also, when you raise a (male) child!
    Looking forward to listen to "The female brain",

    There used to be two teams in every workplace: management and labor. Now there’s a third team, the linchpins. These people invent, lead (regardless of title), connect others, make things happen, and create order out of chaos. They figure out what to do when there’s no rule book. They delight and challenge their customers and peers. They love their work, pour their best selves into it, and turn each day into a kind of art.

    Anthony K says: "Like the Muhammad Ali of Seth Godin Books"
    "Love it!"
    Overall

    A must read, ehhh listen to :-)
    The only issue is: You have to overcome the lizard and act as a Linchpin!
    But well, what are you waiting for? There's nothin' to lose! Except (in the worst case) a boring life :-)

    In an instant the world changed for Lieutenant General Michael O'Neal. His beloved Corps of the last remaining ACS destroyed beneath the guns of the Fleet, his staff shot before his eyes, arrested on the charge of war crimes, he faces a short, one-sided trial, a trip to the Fleet Penal Facility and a bullet to the back of the head while trying to "escape".

    Colin says: "Nice to see Michael O'Neal back, and his daughters"
    "Fantastic!!!"
    Overall

    I'm German, and I was very amused how the author interpreted the German help in the battle...anyway:
    It's a damn great MUST BUY even if u are not interested in Military SI-FI... u don't understand all the military stuff in the 1st place, but therefore they invented the WWW! Consumed the 17 hours in less then 2 days...was just mind blowing!
