The Real Science of Gender Studies
Why Men Don’t Iron is an eye-opening, mind-blowing book on how the major sex differences in our brains impact on our daily lives and behaviour.
Men are not women and yet for the last decade have been told to get in touch with the feminine side of their nature. Men have in fact been told to connect to parts of their brain that do not exist. So what are the essential, unique qualities of men?
In a time when the debate on the ‘feminisation of education’ and the nanny state, ‘the feminisation of the state’, is just beginning, this book is timely and highly controversial.

This is a book about men, and so it is also about women, their view of men and men's understanding of women. It is a real and different contribution to life beyond the battle of words on gender.
In the last decade men have been challenged, hectored and lectured to change from the old dominant male; to become the New Man; to get in touch with their feminine side – but what if it doesn't exist? Much of what has been written and taught has presumed that most of the differences between men and women have been caused by society, and so can be altered, and lo, men and women would become alike.
But in this stimulating book, Anne and Bill Moir show that in fact men's brains are wired very differently from women's so that their stimuli and reactions cannot be the same; and that the increasing feminisation of society, of food and of education is detrimental to men, and evenutally to women too.
Is there a glass ceiling? Only if you accept that there is also a glass floor – for just as men rise to hold most of the prominent positions, so more of them sink to the very bottom of the heap. The process begins in school, and this book adduces valuable insights into why so many boys fail in our education system.
At work, at home, at school, in bed – men march to a different drummer, and to understand their desires and their drives is to comprehend the forces in society that many academics of gender studies deny.
Lively, funny, controversial, based on the most recent research, 'Why Men Don't Iron' is a book you must read to be part of the whole debate.About the Author:
