Oscar Wilde said, “Women are meant to be loved, not to be understood.” In her charming and fascinating book The Female Brain, Louann Brizendine dares to dig deep into the mysteries of a woman’s mind to thoroughly investigate just what makes her tick.
Both richly informative and easily accessible, the book serves to explain how brains which evolved in primitive conditions respond to the challenges of a vastly different modern world. Naturally, with a topic so complex and a publication so short, Brizandine makes generalizations and simplifies some aspects of the female experience; nevertheless, readers will walk away with greater insight into the biological and psychological factors that shapes women’s lives.
I recommend The Female Brain to everyone who wants to better love and understand their mothers, daughters, sisters, lovers, and selves!
