Publishers Description She reads people, and he reads manuals He doesn t ask for directions, and she doesn t appreciate his advice She is so mysterious, and he is so practical He does not seem to listen, and she seems so emotional The list goes on and on In a world where men and women are constantly told they are not different, His Brain, Her Brain shows couples what they instinctively know---men and women are different, and these divinely designed differences, when understood, make a marriage stronger and happier.

Reviews - What do customers think about His Brain Her Brain?
Very informative; good info for any marriage, Christian or not Apr 26, 2010
I'll keep this brief:
This book contains much helpful info regarding biochemical and structural differences between male and female brains; this info is presented in the context of understanding why males and females with both make different observations regarding various situations, and then draw different conclusions, each wondering why the other just doesn't seem to "get it".
Further, this book offers helpful advice when it comes to understanding these differences and helping couples to come to a better understanding of how their differences can compliment, rather than hinder, each partner as both strive to "be their best selves" in the context of their relationship.
The larger point here is that differences are good and helpful, rather than challenges to be overcome. Further, neither males or females are lectured here regarding their need to "change and be more like ...". Reading this book will help you to gain insightful, albeit basic, knowledge of how males and females are quite distinct from one another, yet not so different that their mutual distinctiveness makes harmony impossible. If anything, the opposite is true; this book seeks to offer its readers a better understanding regarding how to utilize gender differences to the mutual advantage of both marital partners.
Why only four stars, instead of five? Personally, I would have liked a bit more technical info; granted, this book does contain a good deal of layman-oriented technical info. Still, I would have liked more, just to deepen and amplify my own understanding.
Further, some of the technical info presented didn't do much to explain other than what happens where "average" males and females are concerned; I would have appreciated some more info regarding situations where a male is an "alpha" male (highly successful at attaining victory in life, but less likely to select just one female and maintain a long-term relationship with her) or an androgynous female (more likely to be able to relate to her man's "maleness", to be sure, but perhaps still needing some info regarding how to utilize her mutually-well developed masculine and feminine personality characteristics to the advantage of her relationships).
If you want to deepen your own understanding of gender differences that, if misunderstood, can threaten your relationship, this book can do much to help. Despite its relatively minor shortcomings, this book can offer much assistance in your understanding of what makes both you, and your spouse, "tick".
Get This Book!!! Mar 25, 2010
I just finished your his/her Brain book. Read it at >> a critical juncture in our 30 + year marraige. I beleive this book >> should be in the hands of every husband in America. I can say along >> with Gods hand, this book single handedly saved our marraige from >> disaster. At one point when I was about to give up, I read chap. 11 about what a man needs and how I am wired e.g. - how difficult it is to be critisized my my wife in public.
I this new light I could see how I was responding with so much resentment and anger over being wrongly accused in a counciling setting. As I burned with rage about the unfairness that night, rather than quit I wrote her a letter about the truth of the matter, showed her the chapter and gave her my letter. She asked me to read the letter aloud, and as I read in tears she heard my anquish, later repented to the team and now this has opened up a new world for us.
Also the issue's of diff. in sight, sounds and multitasking are all great. Good job Barb for her part that made it all work for me. >
>The words from the book are truth and the Spirit is using them in my life is my bottom line.
Keep speaking and telling and writing these truths.
God bless and thanks,
PS Ordered 24 copies, We have daughters and >> their men need this!!

There were many profound things that I gleaned from reading this. God has created men and women very different for different reasons. This is a must-read for those women who think their husbands are one- of- a -kind weird and for those husbands who are positive no other men have to deal with the same set of strange personality traits in their wifes. Our brains are unique to our genders. I even felt much better about myself when I realized I wasn't strange for needing to process information, be anal or needing to feel bond with my home. I bought five and gave them to all my friends including my husband!
A Marriage Must Read! Dec 29, 2009
When you read his Brain, Her Brain by Walt and Barb Larimore - Be prepared to have your brain rocked! (I mean that in the best way possible!) I was impressed with how much research was put into this book - then how well it was distilled down into easily readable - and enjoyable thoughts to apply immediately to my marriage.
Outstanding Book, every spouse should read it. Dec 17, 2009
This is a very important book if you want to learn how your brain is put together and how that makes for differences in how men and women act, react, think, feel, etc. This is a valuable tool to help us learn how to not only deal with our own selves, but also how to deal with our spouses...is she just doing that to tick me off, or does she just react that way to situations because that is how her brain is wired to react? Just one of the many important questions that are answered in this book, a MUST for anyone getting married, already married, or that works with the opposite sex on a daily basis.
