Editorial Reviews

Review

'The missing pieces we've all looked for in a marriage come together in 'His Brain, Her Brain!' Walt and Barb do an amazing job of pulling out the differences in our makeup as men and women and turning them into unifying factors. Every couple in America should grab a copy of this book if they truly want a fulfilling, lifelong marriage. It's more than just a 'gender difference book'; it's an eye-opener and marriage saver!' -- Joe White

From the Back Cover

She reads people, and he reads manuals He doesn't ask for directions, and she doesn't appreciate his advice She is so mysterious, and he is so practical He does not seem to listen, and she seems so emotional The list goes on and on ... In a world where men and women are constantly told they are not different, His Brain, Her Brain shows couples what they instinctively know---men and women are different, and these divinely designed differences, when understood, make a marriage stronger and happier. Combining the latest brain research along with their experiences in over three decades of marriage and counseling, Dr. Walt and Barb Larimore explain how the unique design of each sex, particularly the unique brain and hormones of each, results in different habits, tendencies, and nuances of thought and action. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
You will be very surprised at what you find inside the pages of this outstanding book, His Brain, Her Brain. Dr. Walt Larimore, and his wife Barbara take you on a journey inside the brain, both male and female, and you will be amazed at what they have found. Very interesting!
We have all heard that men and women are different, and of course we all would say a big," Amen!" to that. But do you know that it is scientifically so? In this work you will understand the why's that make us so different, yet merge us so well together. You will marvel at the wonder of the brain as it functions, in both male and female, for the role they are to take. In understanding this, many problems can be resolved, and you will learn these differences can be used to build a stronger relationship with one another.
His Brain, Her Brain is not written in a text book form, but is crafted in such a way that you are learning the science of your brain without even realizing it. I loved the way Dr. Larimore had his wife Barbara add her comments. It gave warmth to the read, and brought the view point of both sexes in on many subjects. This is one great book that every man and woman should have. I believe it will truly make a difference in your life and your relationships. Great job!

Format: Paperback
I love this book so much! As I was reading it I shared all the valuable knowledge I was learning with my husband, my mother and my sister. I never thought a book with scientific knowledge could be so interesting, but it really had me engaged! I found Walt's and Barb's observations on 'his' and 'her' brains to be so true! I laughed at some of the examples they gave as I found them to be true in my marriage too!

Not only that, but the book is so well organised and presented. I love the cover design and interior design of the book with its little light bulb graphics. I also love their use of diagrams and tables (a particularly funny diagram on page 42-43 demonstrates the differences between a man's and woman's brain). The book has a Scripture index, Subject index and Sources page - which made me love it even more...

But perhaps what I loved the most was the insights it contained inside the pages such as:
* Both science and the bible support the idea that men and women are so different.
* At 6 weeks in the womb an unborn male's brain surges with testosterone. When this process was blocked in rats - they acted like females their entire life.
* The left hemisphere of the brain controls the right side of body and focuses on logic, reason and speech whereas the right hemisphere controls left side of body and is the creative side of the brain.
* Testosterone is responsible for aggression and assertiveness in males. Competition can raise the level of testosterone.
* Oxytocin, often called the cuddle or bonding hormone, is released when couples cuddle.
* Women tend to have higher oxytocin levels than men.
* When a mother looks into the eyes of her baby, her oxytocin levels soar much higher than a man's, and this rush is extremely pleasurable to her.

Format: Paperback
All I can say to Walt and Barb is WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? This wonderful book is for every woman who has been exasperated by a man's behavior and every man who has been mystified by his wife's (or girlfriend's)! We have been expecting each other to see, hear and feel exactly as we do. There were so many light bulb moments I was compelled to call everyone I know and say "stop yelling (sighing, crying, pouting, fighting...)and read this book!" Now you can undestand the profound and beautiful differences between a man and a woman. A remarkable and insightful, medically sound, convincingly written book.

Format: Paperback
I love this book!!!! I have ordered 13 more for friends and family because it has so humorously, scientifically and spiritually addressed the differences in men and women better than any I have read. It is a great book for couples who have been married years, couples considering marriage, or, even young people not yet in a serious relationship. In fact, I will start giving this book as an engagement present. This book has made me appreciate, admire and understand my husband better. Also, I recognized my own reactions in Barbara Larimore's comments.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Timothy Jones on May 2, 2008
Format: Paperback
As a pastor, I highly recommend this book to anyone seeking to better understand why their mate acts they way she or he does. People often mistakenly believe that their spouse acts the way they do simply to be annoying. This book does an outstanding job of presenting the evidence for God's unique design of men and women. Yes, we are in fact very different - by design!

Through their presentation, the Larimores detail how the differences are actually part of God's plan for creating women and men to complement one another. Their own stories and the easy to understand presentation of the scientific facts are wonderful and help the reader to better grasp this idea.

I strongly advise anyone considering marriage, or any couple recently married to get this book and read it together. You will laugh together, point fingers at one another, and in the end, gain the freedom to allow each other to operate as God has uniquely created each of you to operate in this world and in your relationship. It is also a great read for anyone that has been married for many years.
