9780141011011: The Essential Difference: Men, Women and the Extreme Male Brain (Penguin Press Science)

'The Essential Difference' shows that, on average, male and female minds are of a slightly different character. Men tend to be better at analysing systems (better systemisers), while women tend to be better at reading the emotions of other people (better empathisers).

Review:

This is no Mars/Venus whimsy, but the conclusion fron twenty years of experiment * Evening Standard * This is a fascinating, thought-provoking book. Women will want to talk about it. Men will sit silent and brood over its details * Observer * Compelling... the book's final and probably most controversial argument is a treat for those who simply enjoy a good idea * Guardian * A thought-provoking take on the minds of men and women * Evening Standard * A devastating new contribution to the gender debate...dynamite * Mail on Sunday * The minds of men and women are very different - and here at last is the scientific proof... scholarly but never dry, this will definitely provoke lively discussion * Daily Mail *
