NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Jan. 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Daniel G. Amen, M.D. is one of the world's leading experts on the brain and bestselling author of over 30 books. For the first time, Dr. Amen devotes an entire book to the female brain, offering insight on the unique characteristics and needs of a woman's brain in UNLEASH THE POWER OF THE FEMALE BRAIN (Harmony Books, On Sale February 12, 2013 $26.00).

The book, based on the largest gender brain study ever done, offers a breakthrough guide addressing the issues women ask about the most including hormones, fertility, pregnancy, menopause, weight, stress, anxiety, insomnia, and relationships.

Based on research from Dr. Amen's clinical practice, UNLEASH THE POWER OF THE FEMALE BRAIN identifies at least five strengths of the female brain: empathy, intuition, collaboration, self control and appropriate worry. But with each strength comes a potential dark side, such as a higher incidence of anxiety, depression, insomnia, pain, and being unable to turn off their thoughts. In the book, Dr. Amen shares a step-by-step program to help women optimize their brain strengths and overcome their vulnerabilities to achieve greater health, energy, and lasting happiness. Dr. Amen says that by harnessing the power of their very unique and incredible brains, women can change the world.
