From the Back Cover:

Michael Gurian, groundbreaking author of The Wonder of Boys and A Fine Young Man, turns his attention to the new field of brain science to uncover the secrets of a man's mind. Gurian answers questions many women have asked in his therapy practice, his lectures, and at his institute over the years:

- Why do men have to control the TV remote and channel surf?
- Is a man really serious when he says, "What do you mean the house is a mess?" or "You worry too much. The kids are fine"?
- Why is it more difficult for men to talk when they get angry than it is for women?
- How can men remember all the pitchers' names and World Series scores, but not yesterday's conversation?
- Why do men put most of their identity into work?
- Does a man's brain feel as many feelings as a woman's brain does?
- Why do men seem to leave their kids behind and start a new family more easily than women do after a divorce?
- How can we help marriages last through all twelve stages of human love?
- Why is romance so primal for women, but not as important for men?
- Is there biology to male honor?
- Could men be more fragile than women?
- Do men and women think about ethics differently?

What Could He Be Thinking? makes a profound statement about the role of men in modern culture, and suggests a way for men and women to thrive in intimate separateness.
