A Shameless Endorsement
The Female Brain, by Louann Brizendine, is a book I mentioned a while back, written by the author before The Male Brain, her newest book.
Just like TMB, it's a short read-- 187 pages without the notes (which makes it 210). The brisk seven chapters cover the same developmental stages as the opposite sex and the role of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone in the emotional lives of women with respect to feelings, love, trust, sex, etc.
There are also three appendices on hormone therapy, postpartum depression, and sexual orientation.
Having finished the book, I now recommend it alonside TMB.
