The Male Brain by Louann Brizendine M.D.is an intrguing look into the science behind why men think and act as they do. If you’ve ever wondered about why men are territorial, tend to be more logical than emotional or changes over time, this is the book for you.
Brizendine is able to build her case with scientific proof of the chemicals within the male brain, the effects of testosterone and more to make some assumptions and correlations between the way that men behave and change over the course of their life. As a follow up to the The Female Brain, The Male Brain is an eye opener for both men and women, and particularly for the parents of boys. If you want to understand your male child or try to formulate some assumptions and understanding of what to expect, this is an ideal look into the why of behavior rather than just the actions themselves.
While The Male Brain is centered around the scientific reasons behind behavior, Brizendine does an excellent job of explaining this information in an interesting fashion without going overboard on simplifying the explanations, but instead does include the facts to backup the statements made throughout. All of this adds up to an extremely interesting, quick read that will make you think twice about how you view male behavior.
