Publisher Comments:

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.

Women know intuitively that men are different from them. 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.

Synopsis:

Michael Gurian, groundbreaking author of The Wonder of Boys and A Fine Young Man, turns his attention to the new field of brain science to uncover the secrets of a man's mind. Gurian answers questions many women have asked in his therapy practice, his lectures, and at his institute over the years:

- Why do men have to control the TV remote and channel surf?

- Is a man really serious when he says, "What do you mean the house is a mess?" or "You worry too much. The kids are fine"?

- Why is it more difficult for men to talk when they get angry than it is for women?

- How can men remember all the pitchers' names and World Series scores, but not yesterday's conversation?

- Why do men put most of their identity into work?

- Does a man's brain feel as many feelings as a woman's brain does?

- Why do men seem to leave their kids behind and start a new family more easily than women do after a divorce?

- How can we help marriages last through all twelve stages of human love?

- Why is romance so primal for women, but not as important for men?

- Is there biology to male honor?

- Could men be more fragile than women?

- Do men and women think about ethics differently?

What Could He Be Thinking? makes a profound statement about the role of men in modern culture, and suggests a way for men and women to thrive in intimate separateness.
