This talk was geared toward laypeople and I thought she did an excellent job of discussing complex scientific topics in an easy to understand format. I was with a group of 5 and all of us said we wished the program were longer.

The lecture was disappointingly vague. Topics were usually referred back to the need to read her book.

Quotes & Highlights

Visit Dr. Louann Brizendine’s web site for more information on her books.


For all those times you’ve wondered “Why?,” Brizendine has the answers. A neuropsychiatrist, Brizendine has studied why our brains lead us to act and react the way we do. Founder of the Women’s Mood and Hormone Clinic, Brizendine first focused on the female brain, studying the neurology behind the emotions and actions of women, and coming to conclusions that helped answer many of those “why” questions that females kept asking her. Now she has answers for the other half. Brizendine explores the male brain, showing how, through every phase of life, the “male reality” is fundamentally different from the female one.
