Clearly written and debunks the myth that men and women are the same. They are innately different and this should demolish the politically correct position that all professions and lifestyle choices should have equal representation of the sexes. Innately most men and women like different things. That doesn't preclude individual men and women choosing from the entire gamut of professions and lifestyle choices but it does mean that more girls are going to choose to care for their families and men to volunteer for the military. A great read/listen.
This book should be bought in addition to “What to Expect When Expecting.” While the aforementioned book details the experience of gestation, this book is about what comes after. A science-based cross-cultural, cross-species view of sex differences that is extremely engaging. Dr. Benenson’s easy to read book is a must. I find myself talking about often. As I read it I observed and applied the knowledge in the book to my children’s behavior. The accuracy of the author’s work was jaw dropping. I’m very happy I discovered this book.
It had always puzzled me why women and girls run through best friends like toilet paper, this makes a lot of sense of just how unique men’s and women’s social dynamics are. Also explains my hobbies as interests when I was a boy. I thought my childhood obsession with big explosions and throwing rocks made me odd. Turns out that’s normal.
These are interesting ideas neatly presented by a highly qualified author. They are especially interesting when viewed against the backdrop of David Geary's comphehensive theory of sexual differences presented in his book "Male, Female".
Wish I knew about this when I was young. Been reading to my 11yo son. Going to include it as one of his must study young adult reference books. Makes the "men are from mars..." books seem silly. Explains sooo much.
This book is flawlessly documented and extremely difficult to argue with. The author's focus on the behaviors of children across cultures is very convincing with regard to selling her points as inborn traits. My biggest complaints are with the book's tone--the title alone is worth a thousand facepalms. It's a brilliant literature review on a topic seldom covered with this level of candor. I highly recommend it.
Incredible and eye opening book. Very helpful in understanding myself and with relationships with men and women in my daily life. Brave author to debunk lots of modern misconceptions on gender. Easy to read and entertaining as well. Scientifically proves wrong the 2016 notion that the only differences between men and women are physical attributes.
For evolutionary reasons and millennia of polygamy, women are set up to undermine women who appear to be more competent than they. It's not a conscious decision. It's a feeling of dislike, that women act on without realizing its origins.
The effect it has had on women is terrible. Since women now have access to good jobs, they find there other 'competitors' and engage in epic battles that are totally pointless and make everyone look bad. Invariably, male managers step in to stop women from fighting. Many (most) women cannot effectively mentor each other and will not nurture female talent. The consequences became more obvious after Hillary lost the election.
The author tells some terribly inconvenient truths. This book should have been on a best seller list, but female authors typically get ignored.
