The Washington Post calls Dr. Daniel Amen, “by almost any measure, the most popular psychiatrist in America.” Unleash The Power of the Female Brain, his latest in a long line of bestselling books on the brain and brain health, offers a practical, step-by-step program specifically for women to help them thrive, and is based on the largest gender brain study ever done. Culled from research from Dr. Amen’s clinical practice, it identifies at least five strengths that are specific to the female brain, and also warns of the potential dark side to each. Dr. Amen is a physician, double-board certified psychiatrist, teacher, and eight time New York Times bestselling author.
