In The Sexual Paradox, psychologist Susan Pinker explores the latest findings of the science of sex differences.Comparing the lives of promising schoolgirls who later opt out of successful careers with those of troubled schoolboys who go on to achieve highly in the workplace, she argues that our biology can shed important new light on the 'gender gap'. Men and women are significantly different - we need to recognize these paradoxical differences, not punish them or legislate against them, if we are to make progress. The Sexual Paradox sheds important - and controversial - new light on a perennial debate.

Recensioner i media

"* 'Susan Pinker's wide-ranging look at the nature of the sexes is a highly readable and welcome contribution to this perennial debate.' Professor Simon Baron-Cohen 'The Sexual Paradox has forced me to have a rethink - and a radical one at that. In her intelligent, thoughtful and profoundly important work, Pinker takes us through the facts... Pinker's book should mark a watershed.' Rosie Boycott, Daily Mail 'At last, common sense... This highly readable book on a familiar theme succeeds where others do not, with its potent combination of scientific research, interviews and astute observation. It is a large contribution to an important debate.' Tony Little, Financial Times 'Raises intriguing questions... To me, this book comes as a relief.' Camilla Cavendish, The Times"
