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!
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.Read more ›
i bought it because i'm very interested in psychology. i'm not married. its a good read for anyone :]
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.
