For the first time, bestselling author and brain expert Dr Daniel G. Amen offers insight on the unique characteristics and needs of the female brain and provides a practical, prescriptive programme specifically for women to help them thrive. In this breakthrough guide based on research from his clinical practice, Dr Amen addresses the issues women ask about the most including fertility, pregnancy, menopause, weight, stress, anxiety, insomnia, and relationships.

By following Dr Daniel Amen's advice and putting his twelve simple, one-hour exercises into practice you will be able to:

* Harness the unique strengths of the female brain - including empathy, intuition, collaboration and self-control - and overcome its vulnerabilities - such as depression, perfectionism and the inability to let go of negative thoughts
* Naturally balance the hormones that govern your energy, mood, relxataion, power, trust and lust and learn how to make your hormones work for you, instead of against you.
* Successfully navigate hormone-related issues such as thyroid imbalance, PMS, polycystic ovarian syndrome, perimenopause and menopause.
* Eat the right foods for a flat tummy, lose unwanted pounds and get healthy and fit
* Get your cravings under control
* Look younger and more vital
* Optimise your brain for love, sex and intimacy in relationships
* Get your brain ready for pregnancy

We put makeup on our faces, soothe our dry skin with cream and hit the gym to tone our bodies. But what about our brains? As Daniel Amen writes, "You don't think about your brain because you cannot see it; however, this is a huge mistake, because success in everything you do starts with a healthy brain."

Backing up his claims with brain scans, questionnaires and blood work, Amen shows women how to optimize brain function through diet, exercise and loving relationships. In an easy, conversational style, he dissects complex issues such as ADHD, mood swings and weight changes and claims such difficulties can improve under a prescribed regime. He provides real-life stories from patients who have successfully altered their lifestyles and also includes a "dos and don'ts" list to achieve overall brain health. After all, without a vigorous brain, every other aspect of life suffers.

"Unleash the Power of the Female Brain" mostly contains common knowledge though easy-to follow instructions will aid readers in retaining and implementing the information. Unfortunately, the book contains many references to further tips and exercises that readers can only find on Amen's website after purchasing a membership.
