What Makes Men Tick?

The Male Brain by Louann Brizendine, M.D. tells all in a readable, relatable book. She gives the reader the scientific information in clear, understandable prose while making it relatable by following male development from infancy through older age. Why can't boys sit still? What is the fascination with burps and farts? (I have wondered about this since it has become prevalent in movies these days.) For parents, there is a story about a recalcitrant student who is immediately turned around by a wise father's carrot and stick technique. For partners and potential partners there are details on the male "mating brain."

Female and male brains differ in anger expression, analysis of facial expression, and spatial manipulation. Learn more by reading this fascinating book.

Her earlier book The Female Brain available in English and Chinese is very popular at the library as well.
