From one of the world's leading experts on how the brain works, this book offers a step-by-step, practical program for women to achieve greater health, energy, and lasting happiness by harnessing the power of the female brain. For the first time, the author, a neuropsychiatrist offers insight on the unique characteristics, strengths (intuition, empathy, multitasking, collaboration), vulnerabilities (anxiety, depression, and a tendency to worry), and needs of the female brain. And he explains his practical, prescriptive program targeted specifically for women to help them thrive. In this guide based on research from his clinical practice, the doctor addresses the issues women ask about the most including fertility, pregnancy, menopause, weight, stress, anxiety, insomnia, and relationships.

We put makeup on our faces, soothe our dry skin with cream and hit the gym to tone our bodies. But what about our brains? As Daniel Amen writes, "You don't think about your brain because you cannot see it; however, this is a huge mistake, because success in everything you do starts with a healthy brain."

Backing up his claims with brain scans, questionnaires and blood work, Amen shows women how to optimize brain function through diet, exercise and loving relationships. In an easy, conversational style, he dissects complex issues such as ADHD, mood swings and weight changes and claims such difficulties can improve under a prescribed regime. He provides real-life stories from patients who have successfully altered their lifestyles and also includes a "dos and don'ts" list to achieve overall brain health. After all, without a vigorous brain, every other aspect of life suffers.

"Unleash the Power of the Female Brain" mostly contains common knowledge though easy-to follow instructions will aid readers in retaining and implementing the information. Unfortunately, the book contains many references to further tips and exercises that readers can only find on Amen's website after purchasing a membership.
