The Female Brain Live

Email This Entry

Posted by Zack Lynch

Earlier this year I previewed the release of Dr. Louann Brizendine's book "The Female Brain" (here) which explains how the female brain works, what women are thinking, and the difference in the way they process thoughts compared with the way men do. The book is finally available. Follow this link to a recent five minute video interview of the author on ABC News (warning, there is a 15 second commercial before her interview begins). If you are interested in reading a bit of the book before you buy it, then follow this link to read a complimentary chapter and find out why a woman uses about 20,000 words a day while a man uses about 7,000.
