In the eagerly awaited follow-up to the wildly popular The Female Brain, neourologist Louann Brizendine demystifies the often puzzling intricacies of the male brain in a highly accessible book that is an owner's manual for every man, and a cheat sheet for for every woman. n The Male Brain, Dr Brizendine reveals the latest science and shows how it explains what we see or experience as men's brain-body-behavior. In the same compelling detail as she did for women in The Female Brain, she follows the male brain through every phase of life, from infancy to adulthood, to produce the ultimate handbook to understanding the male creature. Here she reveals- As children, boys will accept influence from adults and their male peers, but not from their female peers who they seem to not even hear. As teens, boys often can't understand girls, who talk too fast. A woman's shape becomes imprinted on the male brain when he is in love, so that even a glimpse can arouse him. * When their partners are pregnant, men, too, experience hormone changes that make them more emotionally sensitive to a crying baby. They trade mating effort (33% less testosterone!) for parental effort (increased prolactin)
