The Female Brain

I just finished The Female Brain by Louann Brizendine MD

If you are a woman, know any women, plan to parent a female child, or hope to remain married to a woman, you must read this book. It never ceases to amaze me how many of our supposedly higher functions are driven by hormones. The brain is as much a extremely powerful gland as it is the seat of cognition.  Dr. Brizendine's follow-on book The Male Brain is good, but it seems male brains are much simpler and not nearly as interesting.  I always suspected that, but these two books put that question to rest.  Read both!
