From the Inside Flap
In" The Female Brain, Dr. Brizendine distills all of this information in a highly accessible way in order to educate women about their unique brain-body-behavior. For instance, why are women more verbal than men? Why do women remember details of fights that men can't remember at all? Why do women tend to form deeper bonds with their female friends than men do with their male counterparts? Dr. Brizendine explores these questions and many others that have stumped the sexes throughout the ages.
This revolutionary book combines two decades of Brizendine's own work, real-life stories from her clinical practice, and all of the latest information from the scientific community at large to provide a truly comprehensive look at the way women's minds work.

This book makes me hate my own gender, and, chapter after chapter, says that all women's bad behavior is a result of their hormones and "it's just how we're wired." Furthermore, it only discusses the stereotypical female traits. (Boy crazy, obsessed about our looks, and not as good at math).
I was so looking forward to reading a book about the female brain and it's differences from the male brain, but this is a pigeon-holing cop-out.
Top international reviews
It has changed my own understanding of my own brain and the women around me.
Worth a read for women or men who would like to understand the women in their life better.
