Description
For generations, we've been taught that women and men differ in profound and important ways. Women are more sensitive and emotional, whereas men are more aggressive and sexual because this or that region in a woman's brain is smaller or larger than a man's, or because women have more or less of a particular hormone. This story seems to provide us with a neat biological explanation for much of what we encounter in day-to-day life. But is it true? According to neuroscientist Daphna Joel, it's not. And in [this book], she sets forth a bold and compelling argument that debunks the notion of the female and male brain. Drawing on the latest scientific evidence, including the groundbreaking results of her own studies, Dr. Joel explains that every human brain is a unique mixture--or mosaic--of 'male' and 'female' features, and these mosaics don't map neatly into two categories. This is a fascinating look at the science of gender, sex, and the brain, and at how freeing ourselves from the gender binary can help us reach our full human potential.
