Description
 
In The Male Brain, Dr. Brizendine provides fascinating insight about boys and men.  Why do little boys find such endless fun in sheer physical movement? Why do teen boys withdraw emotionally? When young men pursue sex single-mindedly, mature men obsess over their place in their professional hierarchy, and grandfathers rediscover their tender side, what underlying biological imperatives are they following?

Drawing on her clinical work and the research in many fields, from neuroscience to behavioral endocrinology, Dr. Brizendine reveals that the male brain:
- Is a lean, mean, problem-solving machine.  Faced with a personal problem, a man will use his analytical brain structures, not his emotional ones, to find a solution.
- Thrives under competition, instictively plays rough, and is obsessed with rank and hierarchy.
- At certain points in its development, has difficulty following the pitch and cadence of female speech.
