Read in January, 2010

A book that proves men and women are really hard-wired to be stereotypes. This quote summarizes nicely from the chapter on "The Birth of the Female Brain": "Until eight weeks old, every fetal brain looks female - female is nature's default gender setting ... A huge testosterone surge beginning in the eighth week will turn this unisex brain male by killing off some cells in the communication centers and growing more cells in the sex and aggression centers."

Should be required reading for men.
