The Female Brain
I enjoyed this book and its companion, The Male Brain. Dr. Brizendine presents a highly referenced study on the differences between the sexes. She explains the material well and uses case studies to support her conclusions. Somehow I'm having trouble convincing the three females in my family that this is a very interesting and informative read. Curious. And probably consistent with a woman's ...

My number one book!
This is one of my two favorite books. I am a vocational rehabilitation counselor and feel that the book has taught me things I didn't know about what is possible for my consumers with a head injury or stroke. Also, I think it is a good book for teachers or parents, as it explains why learning, practicing, imagining etc. are good for children. All the research that has been done is very ...

Retraining the Brain: A 45-Day Plan to Conquer Stress and Anxiety
Dr. Frank Lawlis
I very much recommend this book. It was easy to read and was very enlightening. Lawlis breaks the book down to various kinds of "storms" that we may have in our brains. From the Depressive Storm to the OCD Storm. And, that word is very applicable - at times, it truly does feel like a "storm" in ones mind. I bought this book (for my Kindle) not really knowing much about it. However, it ...

A quick and interesting read, this book also ...
