The Women’s Brain
Dr Sarah McKay
Rating : 4 / 5
This book is a comprehensive exposé into all matters of the female mind.
Structured around the significant stages of the lifespan, from menstruation to menopause, Dr McKay provides pioneering insight into the changing brain and its influence on a woman’s overall wellbeing. She navigates neurological research that has been largely undiscussed, revealing various layers of biological, social, ethical and historical impact through a personalised, female-only lens.
In the neuroscientist’s informative yet informal narration, The Women’s Brain avoids the clinical side of neurological non-fiction, by relating case studies, interviews and lab research back to everyday experiences.
It’s a compact conversation on everything worth knowing about the female brain and body.
