9780241961353: The Essential Difference: Men, Women and the Extreme Male Brain
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)

From the Publisher:

Simon Baron-Cohen's The Essential Difference: Men, Women and the Extreme Male Brain is an unflinching look at the scientific evidence behind the innate sex differences of the mind.

Men and women have always seemed to think in entirely different ways, from conversation and communication to games and gadgets. But are these differences created by society, or do our minds come ready-wired one way or another, with female brains tending towards interaction and male towards organisation? And could this mean that autism - rather than being a mental anomaly - is in fact simply an extreme male brain?

Why are female brains better at empathasing? How are male brains designed to analyse systems? And what really makes men and women different? Simon Baron-Cohen explores list-making, lying and two decades of research in a ground-breaking examination of how our brains can be male or female but always completely fascinating.

'Compelling ... Inspiring'
  Guardian
