By Michael Gurian. I just got this from the library and am only about 150 pages in. It is geared a lot toward public school teachers, but I am learning quite a bit about little man and how he learns, what I can do to help him etc. So far an interesting read.

I saw a documentary about this - can't remember what, but it was fascinating. They described people's brains as being somewhere on a continuum - "very male" on one end, "very female" on the other. An individual could be at an extreme or anywhere in between. Once you ID where a kid is on the continuum you get a lot of info about how that kid learns.

Yeah the discussion of the brain stuff is fascinating.

When I was in college, my favorite subject was sociology, until I figured out that if I majored in it I'd end up in academia forever :(
