In this hugely readable account Cameron cuts her way through the hype to debunk the myths about language and the sexes that have been propagated in recent popular writing. Drawing on more than 30 years of scientific research in the field of language and gender studies, she explains what the findings really say about men and women and the way they communicate. Essential reading for inhabitants of other planets.

Susannah Herbert, The Sunday Times Cameron, skilled at deflating the sweeping generalisations of others.
