Going beyond the hype of recent fMRI "findings," this interdisciplinary collection examines such questions as: Do women and men have significantly different brains? Do women empathize, while men systematize? Is there a "feminine" ethics? What does brain research on intersex conditions tell us about sex and gender?

I particularly liked the first half of the book. It presents very strong arguments about why the research that focused on gender differences is biased and not accurate. The last two chapters I didn't get the point of them. The book is rich on academic references, specially for any one who wants to have a overview about the topic.
