From the author of the groundbreaking New York Times bestseller The Female Brain, here is the eagerly awaited follow-up book that demystifies the puzzling male brain. Dr. Louann Brizendine, the founder of the first clinic in the country to study gender differences in brain, behavior, and hormones, turns her attention to the male brain, showing how, through every phase of life, the "male reality" is fundamentally different from the female one. Exploring the latest breakthroughs in male psychology and neurology with her trademark accessibility and candor, she reveals that the male brain: *is a lean, mean, problem-solving machine. Faced with a personal problem, a man will use his analytical brain structures, not his emotional ones, to find a solution. *thrives under competition, instinctively plays rough and is obsessed with rank and hierarchy. *has an area for sexual pursuit that is 2.5 times larger than the female brain, consuming him with sexual fantasies about female body parts. *experiences such a massive increase in testosterone at puberty that he perceive others' faces to be more aggressive. The Male Brain finally overturns the stereotypes. Impeccably researched and at the cutting edge of scientific knowledge, this is a book that every man, and especially every woman bedeviled by a man, will need to own. Praise for The Female Brain: "Louann Brizendine has done a great favor for every man who wants to understand the puzzling women in his life. A breezy and enlightening guide to women and a must-read for men." —Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence From the Hardcover edition.

Women: you’re not alone in your marriage. You never have been, and you never will be. While it may not always feel like it, God desires for you to have a relationally healthy, emotionally engaged, and spiritually mature husband with whom you can share your days. In Loving Him Well, Gary Thomas builds on concepts from his bestselling book Sacred Marriage to reveal the inner workings of a man’s heart and mind. He delves into Scriptures that help women gain biblical insight to influence their husbands. Exploring the research of neuroscientists, trained counselors, and abuse victim advocates, Gary also interviews dozens of wives to find what has worked and what hasn’t as they’ve sought to build the best marriage possible. In this newly updated version of Sacred Influence, Gary Thomas outlines practical applications you can begin using today. Thomas desires to “encourage women who are in good marriages that could get even better; and offer hope and a new path forward to women who feel invisible or marginalized in their marriage.” You’ll discover the influence you can gain and the peace of mind you can build when you go first to God for your worth, validation, protection, and provision and then learn how to use that platform to help your husband draw closer to you and closer to God. After decades of marriage ministry, ministering to couples of various walks of life in one of the largest cities in America, and gaining a new sensitivity for many of the issues facing contemporary women, Gary has rewritten this book, adding new stories and fresh illustrations to help wives understand, love, and influence their husbands. Loving Him Well offers encouragement and biblically based support for the transformation of your marriage, drawing you and your husband closer together, the way God intended.

This is a book for women who are looking to improve their dating experience. More effective dating happens by accepting, versus ignoring, our evolutionary design. Understanding our brain wiring and body reaction differences with men explains a lot. Ever wonder why you get so attached to a man, yet he can remain so casual about your relationship? Or why break-ups are so very hard to get over? This breakthrough book helps you understand exactly how a man's mind (and body) works when it comes to intimacy, and the reasons why dealing with a man can sometimes be so exasperating or emotionally painful. Knowing them helps you realize he may not be doing it you deliberately, and what genetic mechanisms give you more power than you've ever had before in building a strong, loving intimate relationship. For example, scientific research finds that evolution designed you to become biochemically addicted -- to his smell. Biology also drives men sexually, but their main "addiction" is to seek multiple mating partners. Evolution also wisely provides that if a certain hormone gets produced in his brain, he'll become just as bonded as you are. There are rules for a successful relationship. Women feel that guys evade them. Guys feel that women invade them. To have a satisfying love life, or a fulfilling dating experience, know how to play by the rules, and play to win! Dr. Pat Allen, Ph.D, MFT, has helped women, men and couples do this for over 30 years; and her workshops have helped tens of thousands of relationships to succeed. After a lifetime studying the SCIENCE of relationships, the energies that drive men and women, and how those energies can be balanced in harmony, you now have access to her latest discoveries. This research refutes many of today's pop theories about relationships, and dismantles basic assumptions of the feminist movement. It's not the first time Dr. Pat Allen offered such contrarian advice. In her bestseller, "Getting to 'I Do'," she described how women can achieve satisfying marital relationships. In this new book, she describes the genetics of what MEN do in their quest for sex (and love), and how women consciously and unconsciously react to these actions. It's time for women to have their consciousness raised about male sexual behaviors, based on scientific research into human mating practices. When you know the evolutionary sources of such behavior, you are empowered to claim the high ground, adopt effective counter-behaviors, and rise above any victim mentality. Knowing the truth about men and their sexual responses will free you to implement new, scientifically proven mating strategies that will increase your chances for developing a loving relationship. Creating solid and lasting relationships means accepting each other's differences instead of denying them. After you've learned the Truth About Men, you'll finally have the information you need to venture forth, make informed choices -- and embrace true Feminine Empowerment.
