    Based on seven years of ground-breaking research and hundreds of interviews, I Thought It Was Just Me shines a long-overdue light on an important truth: Our imperfections are what connect us to each other and to our humanity. Our vulnerabilities are not weaknesses; they are powerful reminders to keep our hearts and minds open to the reality that we're all in this together.

  • "Solid advice, but irrtatingly prese..."

    0 of 0 helpful votes

    The information here is solid, and although basic-sounding 90% of men will not know all of it already. However, it loses one star for the delivery style which is camped-up to the last and contains a gay-related quip of some sort about every 30 seconds. This might be humorous initially or for the first few minutes, but after the second or third complete listen it does get old, and as with any type of self-help information the recording needs to be listened to a number of times before one starts to take action on the advice.
    I think if the narrators had just used their normal speaking voices throughout, as they do in the last "wrapping up" section, this would be a much easier product to listen to.

    However, If you don't mind the delivery, (and even if you do) the advice the book contains is worth the money.

Woolf's blazing polemic on female creativity, the role of the writer, and the silent fate of Shakespeare's imaginary sister remains a powerful reminder of a woman's need for financial independence and intellectual freedom.

"A rueful, razor-sharp memoir," raves Vogue, "funnier than you'd think was possible. Sebold tells what it's like to go through a particular kind of nightmare in order to tell what it's like - slowly, boldly, triumphantly - to heal."

    From the author of the groundbreaking New York Times bestseller The Female Brain, here is the eagerly awaited follow-up book that demystifies the puzzling male brain.
     
    Dr. Louann Brizendine, the founder of the first clinic in the country to study gender differences in brain, behavior, and hormones, turns her attention to the male brain, showing how, through every phase of life, the "male reality" is fundamentally different from the female one. Exploring the latest breakthroughs in male psychology and neurology with her trademark accessibility and candor, she reveals that the male brain:

         *is a lean, mean, problem-solving machine. Faced with a personal problem, a man will use his analytical brain structures, not his emotional ones, to find a solution. 

         *thrives under competition, instinctively plays rough and is obsessed with rank and hierarchy. 

         *has an area for sexual pursuit that is 2.5 times larger than the female brain, consuming him with sexual fantasies about female body parts.

         *experiences such a massive increase in testosterone at puberty that he perceive others' faces to be more aggressive.


    The Male Brain finally overturns the stereotypes. Impeccably researched and at the cutting edge of scientific knowledge, this is a book that every man, and especially every woman bedeviled by a man, will need to own.

    Praise for The Female Brain:
    "Louann Brizendine has done a great favor for every man who wants to understand the puzzling women in his life. A breezy and enlightening guide to women and a must-read for men."
    —Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence

    In this contribution to the emerging men's movement, Robert Moore, a Jungian psychoanalyst and Douglas Gillette, a mythologist, examine the inner King - one of the four archetypes on the male psyche. The inner King integrates power and nurturing, firmness and caring, courage and creativity, self-affirmation and self-sacrifice. From his central position between the world of imagination and the world of action, the King within challenges every man to take up his own scepter, to dream and to make them come true.

    Why are more American adolescent girls prey to depression, eating disorders, addictions, and suicide attempts than ever before? According to Dr. Mary Pipher, a clinical psychologist who has treated girls for more than 20 years, we live in a look-obsessed, media saturated, "girl-poisoning" culture. Despite the advances of feminism, escalating levels of sexism and violence - from undervalued intelligence to sexual harassment in elementary school - cause girls to stifle their creative spirit an natural impulses, which, ultimately, destroys their self-esteem. Yet girls often blame themselves or their families for this "problem with no name" instead of looking at the world around them as the culprit.In this insightful production of Reviving Ophelia, for the first time listeners will hear the personal and painfully honest voices of girls on the front lines of adolescence. By laying bare their harsh day-to-day reality, Reviving Ophelia sounds an alarm identifying these problems, and issues a call to arms to deal with them. And with compassion, Dr. Pipher offers parents compassion, strength, and realistic strategies with which to revive these present-day Ophelias' lost sense of self.

    Women lost the "war between the sexes". Since the time of birth, women are being made into logs with legs spread wide, as an indication of their main purpose - to participate in the reproduction of the human race, and be pleasant toys in the hands of men. Most important is to not forget to tell women, who "love through their ears", that they are wonderful, priceless, how much men love them and depend on them.

    Every woman considers herself an individual. In vain, as regardless of race, ethnicity, profession, and so on, no woman is an individual. Every woman lives as man programmed her to live, as it is convenient for him, as he wants her to. Women do not even suspect who produces images for what they consider their "Self", and why. By studying the history of world culture, it is easy to trace that men usurped everything that had to do with images, as ideas for creation of anything.

    In December 2012, the violent gang rape of a young Indian woman in Delhi shocked the world. India was a country of booming modernisation twinned with centuries-old cultural riches. Was the cruelty of the assault indicative of something profoundly disturbing lurking beneath the surface? Sunny Hundal's arresting exploration of how Indian society treats its women argues exactly this. As a country, India has a disproportionate amount of men to women. They are financial and often social burdens upon their parents.

The story of clubland (and the literature it generated) begins with Britain's military heroes home from the Napoleonic campaign and quickly turns to Dickens's and Thackeray's acrimonious Garrick Club Affair.

    Women are standing up and #shoutingback. In a culture that's driven by social media, for the first time women are using this online space (@EverydaySexism www.everydaysexism.com) to come together, share their stories, and encourage a new generation to recognise the problems that women face. This book is a call to arms in a new wave of feminism and it proves sexism is endemic - socially, politically, and economically. But women won't stand for it.
