Following two decades of neurobiological research, What Could He Be Thinking? answers the questions women are asking about husbands, fathers, boyfriends, and coworkers. This new version of the male psyche will satisfy the tremendous curiosity women have about the roots of male behavior.

What Could He Be Thinking? explains the male brain, male habits, male tendencies, and the nuances of men's actions and thoughts. Michael Gurian makes a statement about the role of men in modern culture, and suggests a way for men and women to thrive together in intimate separateness.
