A landmark new book every woman should read
*Daily Mail*

A beautifully written and reliable book that delivers a sharp wake-up call to the unique features of a woman's physiology that increase dementia risk....I can't wait for this book to reach the millions of women around the world who desperately need this information.
*Dr Rupy Aujla, author of THE DOCTOR'S KITCHEN*

So many of my patients in their 40s and 50s are scared by changes like forgetfulness, brain fog and anxiety. If that's you or someone you know, Lisa's insights and advice will be really empowering.
*Dr Rangan Chatterjee*

The role of oestrogen in the female brain has been underestimated and ignored for far too long - this book will help so many women (and men) understand the importance of this hormone for brain function. This is a must read for all women to learn more about how to look after their brains.
*Dr Louise Newson, leading UK menopause specialist*

This is it - the definitive guide to women's brain health! Dr Lisa Mosconi draws on her years of extensive research to provide you with a fully fledged road map to protecting your brain, no matter what age you are. Filled with straightforward, powerful advice that is easy to implement and promises to benefit not only your brain but your whole life, this is a must-read for all women.
*Catherine O’Keeffe, Menopause Advocate and Coach*

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, author of GENIUS FOODS*

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.
*Dr David Perlmutter, author of GRAIN BRAIN*
