Editorial Reviews

Review

"Dr. Mosconi boldly takes the question of what differentiates men from women away from just the reproductive organs and focuses on the unique characteristics of the female brain. And it is about time! When 2/3 of Alzheimer’s patients are women, clearly a manifestation of the female brain’s uniqueness, we must take notice. The XX Brain is fully empowering, leveraging the very best science allowing women to enhance cognitive health and gain control of their brain’s destiny."—David Perlmutter, MD, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Grain Brain

"This extraordinary book gives women cutting-edge, research-based advice on what they particularly need to know to keep their brains functioning at maximum capacity. Highly recommended!"—JJ Virgin, New York Times bestselling author of The Virgin Diet

"Women over 35 need to know that perimenopause is a dramatic transition state not just in terms of mood, sex drive, and hot flashes—but in terms of brain health and function. Lisa Mosconi is the leading authority on the female brain as it navigates hormonal upheaval, and she is here to close our knowledge gap. I give her extraordinary new book my highest recommendation!"—Sara Gottfried, MD, New York Times bestselling author of The Hormone Cure

"Women’s brains have unique risk factors for dementia that until now have been ignored by science. Lisa Mosconi’s path-breaking work changes this paradigm to show women how they specifically can protect and enhance brain function throughout life. Essential reading!"—Max Lugavere, New York Times bestselling author of Genius Foods

"This is a groundbreaking, must-read book, right on target with what I have found about women’s brains. As we age it is critical for us to act aggressively in promoting not just our health but our brain health through lifestyle.  I highly recommend it!"—Anna Cabeca, DO, author of The Hormone Fix

"The XX Brain is a must read for every woman who wants to protect her brain. Dr Mosconi presents invaluable information and practical solutions to be—and stay—your best."—Louann Brizendine MD, author of The Female Brain

"The XX Brain is an exciting and empowering read for all women. Dr. Mosconi provides actionable advice to protect your brain and thrive throughout your lifetime! I highly recommend making your brain a priority now and taking charge before the inevitable hormonal shifts of perimenopause. In this book, Dr. Mosconi will show you how."—Dr. Jolene Brighten, MD, author of Beyond the Pill

"The XX Brain is a wealth of vital information about brain health. For too long brain health has not been considered women's health, and Dr. Mosconi is having none of that! In an accessible and relatable way she provides women with the necessary background information and tools to be empowered about brain health. Whether you have a family history of Alzheimer's disease, are struggling with brain fog in menopause, or just want to know more, this book is for you. I learned a lot, and I'm eager to share this information with my colleagues and my patients. Taking care of your brain starts with this book."—Dr. Jen Gunter, MD, New York Times bestselling author of The Vagina Bible

"In her new book, The XX Brain, she [Dr. Mosconi] explains the differences between the female and male brains and explores the different ways the brain affects women’s health. She offers practical tips on how to optimize brain health and discusses the unique risks women have for developing Alzheimer’s disease and actions they can take to help prevent it."The Wall Street Journal

"In The XX Brain, Mosconi makes a compelling argument: Brain health is women’s health."—goop

"The XX Brain: I'm buying this for every woman I love in my life."—Mandy Moore
