Read this one for an online feminist book club and really enjoyed it! Very well researched. General premise is that people (mostly journalists or popular science writers but the occasional scientist as well) are interpreting data according to their own preconceived notions and/ or greatly exaggerating the conclusions of research into the neuroscience of gender. The author also goes into great detail about how stereotyped views of women affect their views of themselves and their performance on tests even choice of professions. Very interesting.
