About the Author:

Anne Fausto-Sterling is professor of biology and medicine at Brown University.

From Library Journal:

Are men smarter than women, better at math, inherently more aggressive? Are women verbal, subject to monthly emotional storms, and doomed without hormone intervention to a sexless deteriorating old age? Do studies by sociobiologists shed light on gender behavior in humans? Fausto-Sterling, an associate professor of medical science at Brown University, considers all these questions, concentrating on the scientific studies on which popular assumptions are often based. She presents complicated ideas clearly and knowledgeably and is devastatingly critical of the scientific validity of much of the work she cites. Her own opinions unavoidably (and admittedly) color her judgment subtly, but she does great service in exposing the faultiness of many gender studies and presenting the complexity of this important topic.
