For the first time, bestselling author and brain expert Dr Daniel G. Amen offers insight on the unique characteristics and needs of the female brain and provides a practical, prescriptive programme specifically for women to help them thrive. In this breakthrough guide based on research from his clinical practice, Dr Amen addresses the issues women ask about the most including fertility, pregnancy, menopause, weight, stress, anxiety, insomnia, and relationships.

By following Dr Daniel Amen's advice and putting his twelve simple, one-hour exercises into practice you will be able to:

* Eat the right foods for a flat tummy, lose unwanted pounds and get healthy and fit
