Why Y Matters

Why “Y” Matters

Louann Brizendine, M.D.; Women's Mood and Hormone Clinic, UCSF; Author, The Female Brain and The Male Brain

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.
