A vehement attack on the latest pseudo-scientific claims about the differences between the sexes.


Sex discrimination is supposedly a distant memory. Yet popular books, magazines and even scientific articles increasingly defend inequalities by citing immutable biological differences between the male and female brain.

That’s the reason, we’re told, that there are so few women in science and engineering, so few men in the laundry room – different brains are just better suited to different things.

No so, says Cordelia Fine, and Delusions of Gender, in hugely enjoyable style and superbly researched, shows exactly why.

--------------





‘Impeccably researched and bitingly funny … both sexes should rejoice at [this] vitriolic attack on … sexism

masquerading as psychology.’ Evening Standard

‘Bold ... Timely and provocative ... [Fine’s] well-stocked armoury ... includes extensive research, sharp wit and a probing intelligence, and refuses to be satisfied with the delusional myth-making that often passes for popular science.’ Metro

‘Fine writes with bravura. She takes no hostages. She rejoices in demystifying the compellingly seductive false colour images provided by the MRI scanners ... a book that sparkles with wit, which is easy to read but underpinned by substantial scholarship and a formidable 100-page bibliography ... every page of Fine’s brilliant, spiky book reminds us that science is part of culture and that the struggle against sexism in the neurosciences and the struggle against sexism in society are intimately linked.’ Hilary Rose, Times Higher Education Supplement

‘Fine invites her readers into a passionate, insightful and often funny discussion about how gender identity is all in the mind, not the brain’ Globe & Mail, Canada

‘As Fine argues in this forceful, funny new book, the notion that gender accounts for differences in minds and behavior through some biological, brain-based process is an idea as popular as it is unproven.’ Boston Globe



‘An irreverent and important book’ Washington Post

‘Read this book and see how complex and fascinating the whole issue is.’ New York Times

‘A timely warning against taking too seriously the deluge of books and articles that would have us believe that men are biologically advantaged when it comes to mathematics, racing driving or map reading – and that women are naturally more intuitive and nurturing, so better at childcare and multitasking.’ Guardian

‘Dr Fine is a brilliant tour guide – making light, fun and engaging work of the research. By debunking the rubbish, this book opens up possibilities for a (slightly) clearer vision of the future. Not to be missed.’ www.fat-quarter.co.uk

‘Men may be from Mars and women from Venus but if you put blokes and sheilas on each other’s planet they will work out how to manage … An excellent book that puts the old nature-or-nurture debate in the context of the new science on the way our brains work.’ The Australian



‘This marvellous and important book will change the way readers view the gendered world.’ Publishers Weekly


‘Weaving together anecdotes, dense research and quotes from numerous experts, she offers a well-balanced testament to the many ways in which cultural rules inform behaviors often mistaken as organic to our brains, as opposed to learned. Nuanced details like the size difference between male and female brains (the former of which is larger) make a difference, and it's fascinating to discover that so many of these scientific reasons.’ Kirkus
