Overview

Brain Sex: The Real Difference between Men and Women by Anne Moir, David Jessel

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 little dated and slightly biased in favor of females. But, a really good introduction to the facts of how males and females differ.

Truth in the midst of hysterical propaganda that seeks to make two sexes, that evolved and worked differently for hundreds of thousands of years, the same. 2+3=10-5. Men and women are equal in worth but different in being just like the above equation. You still get 5 as the answer but through different means.

My family and relationship psychotherapist highly recommended this book. I am excited to begin reading!

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.

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.

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.
