Lefties: The Origins and Consequences of Being Left-Handedby Jack Fincher
Jack the Ripper and the Boston Strangler were left-handed. So were Leonardo da Vinci and Marilyn Monroe. Today every lefty knows that being left-handed is a sign of special genius and a nuisance in a world geared - from handshakes to scissors - to the right-handed. This informative volume examines every aspect of left-handedness, from its causes and historical attitudes toward it, to the latest scientific theories about what it represents.
For one of the largest minority groups in the land, Lefties is a lively, comprehensive guide to the facts and new findings, legend, and lore of the so-called "sinister people."
