Format: Hardcover
Konduru's review is for a different book! There are two books "The Female Brain" - one by prof. Cynthia Darlington from New Zealand, and second by Louann Brizendine M.D. from California. My guess is that Mr. or Ms. Konduru read Brizendine's book and placed his or her review beneath 2nd edition of prof. Darlington's book. Prof. Darlington book has 9 chapters:

1. Introduction
2. A historical pespective
3. Brain structure
4. Functional differences: Neurotransmitters and neuromodulators
5. Perception and cognition
6. Laterality
7. Neurology, psychiatry, and the female brain
8. Drugs, sex, and...
9. Where do we go from here?

It is a scientific book from Conceptual Advances in Brain Research series.

3 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Nikunj Konduru on December 6, 2009
Format: Hardcover
I am writing this review to notify those who are contemplating reading this book that only read it if you want to read for fun and entertainment, not for pure knowledge. I purchased and read this book for two reason: 1) I was curious about the neuronal changes between men and women that affects the way they think and act, and (2) because one of my classmates in Introductory Neuroscience class recommended it as an essential look inside the female brain. As I read the book however, I was extremely disappointed in the amount of neuroscience that is actually present in the book and the bias in which the information is presented. Although I found the book to be an easy read with witty anecdotes and minimal use of complicated jargon, I found it to be over simplified to quench my curiosity about the neuroscience behind the clear difference between genders.

Style and Structure:

The book is divided into seven chapters discussing the different stages of a female's life, and topics like sex, love and trust, and emotions in terms of females. The book starts with an introduction section that pretty much covers most of the neuroscience present in the book. In the rest of the chapters, the author uses stories of her patients in the Women's and Teen Girl's Mood and Hormone Clinic, which she founded at University of California, San Francisco, to provide real life examples of emotions and actions of women during various stage of life. In addition, she provides extensive notes and references section for further readings.

Synopsis:

Introduction
Before even starting the book, the author provides a page of neuro-anatomy that is important in causing gender differences though their size and level of activation.
