Who Switched Off Your Brain?: Solving the Mystery of He Said / She Said

    Dr Caroline Leaf is a brain scientist who has specialized in the science of thoughts for over 20 years. She is also a Christian. In this book, she explains scientifically (though in layman's terms) how the male and female brain differ and process situations in unique ways.

    Much like most relationship books (think 'Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus'), this book tends to deal in generalizations. If you and your spouse are typical examples of your sex, I'm sure you will gain a lot of insight into your relationship, but if, like me, you are not a typical example of your sex, this book will be largely unhelpful...still, I found it interesting nonetheless. Science, Spirituality, Psychology A complete guide to understand Female and male brain differences in detail. Science, Spirituality, Psychology Dr. Caroline Leaf is a scientist, a Christian one. It shows here in two specific ways, she tries to explain the science with some scientific terms, and then occasionally implement some bible verses that say something that confirm the science. It is not necessarily wrong, it’s just feels too simple - the biblical authors did not write to confirm science, so the theological jump is just to confirm for the Christian reader that the bible is sound toward the science. The scientific facts does not always explain the psychology, and psychology is seldom consulted. A simplistic feel is what the book gives, it’s science tried to make easy, by simplifying language and adding explanations. It’s not necessarily bad, as long as the science is correct. The “Brainy tips” and “Fast facts” are just annoying. What I find a bit bad tho, is that in her scientific style she show that her examples are not very well rooted in psychology and thus they are either made up or she uses her own family as example. She could have used other scenarios or even more statistical material. It is by that becoming a stereotype that so then explained, and yes, they have something right in them - but it seems that it is not based on psychological insight and data gathered from multiple people. A very weak point. She do smooth over and explain that there are no stereotypes, but she still have to adhere to them when explaining the differences is men and women. It ends up being a lot of women this and men that. She asserts the uncertainty, but states things very assertively. There is nuggets in here of course, different nuggets for different people, but it is to much different things and too little on each. It is basically a book that go through differences in the male and female brain and show how they affect behavior, and then how to deal with it. It lacks a bit of system, an overarching plain. But, hey, it may still be worth it. Science, Spirituality, Psychology Great book to understand male/female differences. Good couples study Science, Spirituality, Psychology In Who Switched Off Your Brain? , Dr. Caroline Leaf has thoroughly researched the differences and similarities of men and women. She is a neuroscientist who studies the brain many different functions. In this book here are some different things you will learn: As a society, we think that women tend to speak more words daily than men but according to studies conducted men and women speak nearly the same amount of words daily. It greatly depends on our unique “I-Factor”, which differs from each individual person that God has designed each one of us to be. Men have to focus on one subject, conversation, or task at a time. Women are able to multitask and handle doing many different tasks and conversation topics at a time. Men at the end of the day have to have space to process and relief their stressful emotions. Women have to talk to release their stress and their emotions. Dr. Leaf proved her point about men and women are meant to complement each other. No one gender is better than the other. The important thing is to be there for each other in their needs. This book can help you to recognize and understand each other more fully.

    I would recommend this magnificent book to readers that are struggling with connecting with the opposite sex. This book will improve your relationships with your spouses, parents, children, bosses, family members, friends, and strangers. You will see and learn how science has supported with tons of research and revealed the truths of how much we desperately need each gender. I immensely enjoyed how Dr. Leaf is a Christian Scientist and this book had many scriptures and that she also used science to reinstate her beliefs. Many researchers have established evidence for what the Bible has already clearly publicized! This is an awesome thing! The book has helped me to learn that my wife wants and needs me to show affection and empathy when she is talking and sharing a piece of her soul. The book contained diagrams of the brain structure and they are really enlightening in displaying the information. If you want help in any area of your relationships then read this amazing life changing book! Your relationships will vastly improve if these principles are set into place!
