Beverly HofstadterDoctor_of_Medicine| M.D, Doctor_of_Philosophy| Ph.D., is the mother of Leonard Hofstadter. Beverly is a neuroscientist as well as an award-winning psychiatrist and author.


Beverly Hofstadter has written a number of psychology books icluding quite a few on Leonard. They are available to purchase on

She has written a book, which we have yet to find out its name, unnamed book, with "there's no guarantee even if you have kids that you're going to like them" right on its cover.

She has written a book entitled "Needy Baby, Greedy Baby" about Leonard.

She has written a book entitled "The Disappointing Child" which appears in "The Raiders Minimization. It is about Leonard again which has a chapter in it about "anything that came out of" him.

As of the end of season 9 she was planning to writing a book on overachieving couples and wants to interview Amy/Sheldon and the Wolowitzes, but not Leonard/Penny. Although, would she do it after when it is the last straw for Penny who has tried to connect with Beverly and now gets angry at her and yells at her for being an insult all day until Beverly admits that she had trouble getting along with Penny because of her marrying Leonard and not inviting her or even telling her the wedding was taking place and after Penny suggests a wedding redo which Beverly finds perfectly acceptable? And the two ladies bond and Beverly being wrong about thinking that Leonard and Penny marrying was a mistake since she had never seen Leonard so happy, showing that she could interview her too now. But nothing for Raj since there was no mention of him in this.

In "The Change Constant", Beverly visits Leonard and Penny appearing to be interested in them and their work, but she is really working on a new book on how her children turned out based upon her parenting theories.
