Great review of all the science on gender differences in children, and how our gendered society conflates tiny differences into separate childhood cultures. On a practical level, each chapter includes how to compensate for the weaknesses and use the strengths that do have a genetic component. (She has 3 kids, by the way, 2 boys and a girl, and uses them as anecdotes from time to time.)

If you have ever gnashed your teeth walking through a Toys R Us, this book is for you.
