really liked it

Very interesting read. I really didn't want to put it down. There are a few parts where the author describes scenes along with what's happening in the it reads really intensely and a little graphic. I wouldn't recommend this for someone not married. However, with a husband and two little boys, learning about how the male brain works from infancy to old age was very fascinating. I think it'll help me be a better mother (as long as I can remember certain things!) and definately a better wife. It was funny to be reading a part and then have my boys or husband say or do something just like what I was reading. I have never been opposed to the watching/playing of sports and always knew it was part of the male thing...but knowing why and understanding a little more was very cool. It talked about why video games are cooler for boys and men. Again, I do not have a problem with video games, but it was interesting to understand a little more. I think I am a very understanding wife and mother when it comes to my boys and their attitudes and their constant re-telling of fights or sports. I think this book will only help me feel more secure in backing them up in those pursuits.

Jasmyn I told Marc that you had read a book about the Male Brain and he said "What was it? A pamphlet? Here's your brochure on everything that's going on in there..." I was laughing and then he continued... "The woman's brain, now that would be something different. Phew - I'm almost done! I'm on volume 34, which means I only have 52 to go!" :) So, thanks for the laugh!
