Brain Sex: The Real Difference between Men and Women

Overview

Why can't a woman be more like a man? What is this thing called "feminine intuition"? Why are men better at reading maps, and women at other people's characters? The answers lie in the basic biological differences between the male and female brain, which, say the authors, make it impossible for the sexes to share equal emotional or intellectual qualities.

    A waste of time

    If you like to think in terms of sterotypes and gross generalizations about men and women this book is for you. If not, I would recommend looking elsewhere. Perhaps,a University course or two on gender studies.

    Will Really Help You Understand the Differences

    I read this book in college for my Human Sexuality class. I think it really helped me to understand that under no circumstances should we expect men and women to think the same way because our brains are wired so differently. It's a definite must-read for anyone else who is completely baffled by the opposite sex.

    How physical differences shape men and women

    Very interesting study of the real biological differences between men and women and how these things affect the senses and on to how these perceptions can shape the capabilities of each gender in practical ways. Things like how the eyes are designed in men for better depth perception while for women their eyesight allows them to actually observe more.
