Fun read, recommended for someone in love or who may experience love in the future.
I heartily recommend his revelation in writing!
Alan V. Cecil
If you don't have a healthy (satisfying) sex life, for example, you can blame a good portion of that on the brain--excluding too much plaque in the capillaries.
As the book's former title--Sex on the Brain--suggested, this is about romance and sex and how your brain's health and thinking affects your intimate relatiohship/s.
Although, author Amen deals a lot with scientific research via brain scanning, there is much of what we might call wisdom espoused.
Amen gets into the benefits of the judicious use of antidepressants as well as natural supplements. Sprinkled throughout are interesting facts (using indefinite research language, alas) of how and why it is the brain that controls one's sex life, and how the brain can be aided to benefit this part of our life's enjoyment. Those chemicals we take to help us with our personality and sex life work on the brain and, in turn, it creates effects in our thoughts, desires and behaviors.
Does Amen get carried away with his scientific brain scanning research? At times. I found myself skipping pages that were too erudite or uninteresting, but, for the most part, he is a real educator and motivator.
I consider the book at least as important as any love manual. You'll forget the multiple facts and suggestions, so you'll want to keep the book.
If you want a natural approach to solving ED (erectile dysfunction), for example, he's got that, too. ED affects many more men than I thought.
Something you may not have expected are his suggestions on courtship. This is a book of facts, hints and demonstrable results. You'll want to know all of them.
Near the end of the book he touts his unique brain scanning technique called SPECT--worth checking out if you're having any romantic or sexual problems that other methods don't seem to solve. I would tend to make his scanning a first choice. Costs money, but life is short, so enjoy it.
