Short, readable summary of the current thinking on the biology and function of the male brain. Turns out the effects are a lot like one might think, but the causes of those effects are interesting nonetheless. ( )

Expected scientific explanations with generalizations to illustrate, but was far more geared toward broad generalizations vaguely correlated to science. Very limited treatment of the topic and men are relegated to a narrow range of behavior. Part of the book seems to be assuaging the guilt of parents raising unpleasant people because their children are not violent or irresponsible, they are just being male.
No discussion seemed to be given regarding the variability of brains within the sexes, but I did stop reading because the book was so disappointing, and the ePub was corrupt to top it all off. ( )

Boring rehash of clichés in large part. Little boys are competitive. Men think about sex all the time. Such news! Ended up skimming the last two-thirds. ( )

Always keep in mind that his providing solutions to your problems is how he shows you he loves you. This book was pretty short and basic, but if you don't know much about psychology already, it is a great "Cliffs notes" version. ( )
