What Could He Be Thinking? Understanding The Nature Of Men

This entertaining and eye-opening lecture focuses on how the minds of men REALLY work. We've heard a lot over the last decades about how we wish a man's mind worked, but do we really know the truth about men, their emotions, their relationships and their secrets. Mining the cutting edge of sciences of neurobiology and neuropsychology, Michael Gurian provides understanding of the male brain that makes good sense. With anecdotes, everyday situations and a keen eye for what makes human beings tick, Michael explores boyhood, adolescence, adulthood, marriage, the workplace and home life. He believes that one of the most important questions we can ask in our time is the simple (and very complex) one: What could he be thinking?
