Having studied how boys and girls develop differently, Michael Gurian turns his attention to adult men in this entertaining, informative, and groundbreaking book on the male brain. Following two decades of neurobiological research, What Could He Be Thinking? answers the questions women and the world are asking about husbands, fathers, boyfriends, and coworkers. Mixing neurobiology with Gurian's very readable style, anecdotes from everyday life, and a new vision of the male psyche, the book will satisfy the tremendous curiosity women and our culture have about the roots of male behavior.

What women are now just coming to realize is that the men they are married to, having sex with, working with, parenting with, and trying to fathom, act and think in very male ways, not only because they are socialized to do so, but because they are built to--neurobiologically.

The new field of brain science has revealed wonderful secrets about a man's mind. In this book, women who are eager to understand the men in their lives can discover the new brain science in an entertaining way, as they get answers to the prime question every woman asks at some time in her life: What could he be thinking?

The book provides fascinating information about the male brain, male habits, male tendencies, and the nuances of men's actions and thoughts. It is a provacative, exciting vision into the minds of men.

He is cofounder of the Gurian Institute, which conducts research an...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you ever wondered - here are the answers! This books gives answers to our questions about the guys and provides just as many about us gals. Based on neurobiology! it kinda takes the pressure off and calmly explains many mysteries. If you have kids I also recommend Boys and Girls Learn Differently - get the one with both the parent and teacher edition - I couldn't put it down, and I don't even have kids! It just made me feel relieved~somehow? Easy to read and engaging! Enjoy!
