This insightful and provocative book explains why and how the different sides of the brain control the attitudes and behavior of people, noting that people are programmed to be either left-brain or right-brain oriented based on the language they learn from infancy. The author adds that the unique Japanese language programs the Japanese to be right-brain oriented-providing them with a variety of advantages in their arts, crafts, business and personal relationships...attributes that left-brain oriented people [all other major groups of people] do not naturally have and must develop in order to achieve their fullest potential. The book also explains why all women are far more "dual-brained" than men and how they are compelled to use this circumstance when interacting with men. Invaluable insights into human behavior, including sexual relationships.

There is growing evidence that the language one first learns as a child determines which side of the brain is dominant for the rest of the person's life. People who are right-brain dominated think and behave differently from those who are left-brain oriented. In this insightful and provocative book, Boye Lafayette De Mente, internationally known for his books on the influence of langage on the cultures of China, Japan, Korea and Mexico, presents the Japanese as being the most "right-brained" people on the planet, and proposes that it is the right-brain left-brain factor that explains why the Japanese make such high-quality products. He also argues that predominately left-brained people (Americans and others) must learn how and when to use the right sides of their brains if they are to achieve their full potential--and offers guidelines for becoming "dual-brained."From the Author:
Growing up in Japan I soon became aware that the Japanese not only behave differently from other people, they naturally think differently as well. But it was not until I became aware of the work of Dr. Tadanobu Tsunoda that I began to understand why the Japanese thought and behaved the way they did.
Dr. Tsunoda has been engaged in researching the function of the left and right sides of the brain since the 1970s...and has discovered that the Japanese use the right sides of their brain far more often and more efficiently than the rest of the world's people. I became one of his research subjects, read his books and papers, and soon realized that the rest of the world needs to catch up with the Japanese in the use of the right side of the brain. [I also discovered that in left-brain oriented countries women have to learn how to use the right sides of their brain in order to live with men!]
