    A distinguished fellow of the American Psychiatric Association, Amen (psychiatry, Univ. of California, Irvine; Change Your Brain, Change Your Life) is well known for his research on neuropsychiatry and brain imaging. He holds that differing levels of activity in various parts of the brain, as revealed by a brain scan, greatly aid the diagnosis and treatment of behavioral problems. Here, he applies that approach to sexual issues like attraction, gender differences in sex behavior, dangerous partners, sex addictions and fetishes, erotic enhancement, and problematic and mood-related behavior. There are self-tests, case studies, and suggestions for balancing brain activity through diet, exercise, supplements, and (as prescribed by a physician) medications. This fascinating, clearly written book is supported by a glossary, extensive references, and a detailed description of how brain scans work. However, Amen's approach is somewhat controversial, so it may not convince all readers. For large public libraries.
