Description

Product Description

Why can''t a woman be more like a man? What is this thing called "feminine intuition"? Why are men better at reading maps, and women at other people''s characters? The answers lie in the basic biological differences between the male and female brain, which, say the authors, make it impossible for the sexes to share equal emotional or intellectual qualities.

About the Author

Anne Moir, PhD, is a scientist, television producer, and bestselling author. A graduate of Oxford University specializing in genetic research and trained in psychotherapy, she is the founder of BrainsexMatters and cofounder of the Institute for Love and Sexual Fulfilment. She is the author of three books: Brain Sex, A Mind to Crime, and Why Men Don''t Iron.

David Jessel is a former TV and radio presenter, an author, and an advocate for the wrongfully convicted. He is best known for his investigative television shows  Rough Justice and Trial and Error, which led to the re-examination and overturning of more than a dozen criminal convictions. He then served for ten years on the Criminal Cases Review Commission, where he continued to investigate possible miscarriages of justice. Since 2014, he has been a member of the Complaints Committee of the Independent Press Standards Organization.

I gave four stars to the previous editions of this book and praised it and her for standing up against the feminists insistence that boys could be made into girls and girls could be made in to boys. I had a couple of caveats: that her book suffered from want of an evolutionary perspective and that she was too romantic in thinking that men and women could work together. But I realized that she herself was a geneticist and documentary producer for the BBC, that might explain her desire to copy John Gray and water down her conclusions. Now she comes back writing like the very gender feminists she hotly criticized in 1997. Her excuse: new brain science has revealed the plasticity of the brain. I don''t doubt that parts of the bran are plastic, else we could not learn and update learned behavior. But as I read the facts, this is not true of the most important differences, many of which she revealed in the first edition. But others she did not. For example, as Bobbi Low and Richard Dawkins described, the basic male/female sex differences came the egg and sperm differences, and these haven''t change. Robert Trivers based his parental investment theory on the egg and sperm differences, and this theory has held up even in the few species in which the male makes to larger investment. All other human traits grew out of the basic traits as modulated in differing the different EEAs of different species. Probably the most basic human male trait is not aggressiveness but dominance in competition with other males. Margaret Mead concluded from her life of research that males must have their own arena of performance and that those societies that treated male and female rolls as interchangeable died The male arena, is really the human male rutting arena, where male humans like stags, duke it out and in so doing demonstrate to women their biological fitness as mates. It is no coincidence that all over the world, females desire a male who has the most wealth, status, and power, power being a veritable aphrodisiac. Initially the rutting ground was hunting, and research shows that the dominant hunters and warriors had the most wives. Next came farming, and the dominant males ruled as kings with harems of wives. Next came the workplace of the IR, and male industrial moguls has the most wives, although Christianity led to serial polygamy rather than concurrent polygamy. Neuropsychologist Louann Brizendine allows that women under rate the importance to men of their job. So does she. It is more like George Gilder warned in Sexual Suicide that as women invade the male rutting ground, males exit. Because our society measures merit with pencil and paper tests, on such tests most females outscore most males, and businesses boost women with institutionalized affirmative action, women will inevitably run men out the rutting arena they created. Also I''ve noticed that, as if taking a cue from Moir, schools are busy trying to feminize 5-12 year-old boys, forcing them to play with girls. Already, women in Europe and America are finding it harder and harder to find Mr. Right, as women take jobs away from men, which may be behind the abrupt leap in the number of women who self-identify as lesbian or bi that Leonard Sax pointed out, marriage is a dying institution, and male violence is increasing.

My father (born 1941) recommended this book to me twenty years ago and I refused for many years because he would shove everything through the filter of Male/Female brain. I was turned off by his summary of “Men have male brains, and women have female brains. But some men have female brains and some women have male brains. And some male brains have female features, and female brains have male features...”, and would then proceed to tell everyone what kind of brain they had. This was worse than astrology, “I’m not like the usual Scorpio, because my moon is in Cancer and my Pluto is in the Seventh House.” So it appears that you could support any theory if there are enough exceptions.

I read the book to eliminate my dad’s frequent argument of “You haven’t read it so you don’t know.” I feel that the book was actually - and only - “good”. I feel it was written at an eighth grade reading level, and it is 30 years old. Parts were well-written and thought-provoking. Other parts were Just. So. Tedious. I have a Master’s in a mental health field, so perhaps I’m just not used to being spoonfed every possible iteration of a theory. Much of the book incited an anxiety in me similar to when someone just keeps talking and talking but not saying anything new. I tried to figure out “Maybe it’s just my male brain responding.” But, much of it was like reading an entire cookbook for stir fry line-by-line.

TOFU, brown sauce, broccoli. BEEF, brown sauce, broccoli. PORK, brown sauce, broccoli.
TOFU, brown sauce, peppers. BEEF, brown sauce, peppers. PORK, brown sauce, peppers.
TOFU, brown sauce, bok choy. BEEF, brown sauce, bok choy. PORK, brown sauce, bok choy.

Those aren''t really nine different recipes, and it''s tiresome to add chili peppers and call it Szechuan, then repeat the same simple recipe nine ways as a whole different chapter. But, in this case, it was every way that sex differences are expressed as infants, in early school, late school, work, home, parenting, etc. “What? Males were more competitive and externally-focused, and women were more co-operative and communicative in the workplace just like they were on the playground, classroom, puberty, or through parenting chapters? Oh, I didn’t see that coming...”, “Oh again, with the castrated rats... add hormones and the same thing happened as in several previous chapters.”

(Hence the title of this review.)

The book could have been a much better book if it were cut down to 50 pages, AND acknowledged that it is among several other factors influencing interpersonal and intrapersonal experiences. There are so many other aspects to human brains (trauma, genetics, family, culture, addiction, disease, shame, religion, on and on) that this is just one part of what needs to be learned and considered. The DSM has 297 disorders in 947 pages, and that doesn’t include all of the hundreds of treatment options to address those diagnoses. So I’m resistant to a book that carries with it such a temptation for people to be reductive versus expansive.

I think the book is good for curious people who don''t understand why some thought processes are different than their own, this will shed some light in one arena. If you think that your way of thinking is "correct", then having page after repetitive page can provide the temptation to weaponize the info to say, “You can’t help it, you have a female/male brain.” as a science-based support for dismissing people, then please do not read this book.

However, if you accept that people are people and we all think in a variety of ways, then the book isn’t revelatory.

It is quite readable (despite the repetition), a good primer for laypeople, and, though it never claims to be everything, I would have really liked for the authors to have addressed the risks of over-generalization more openly. Some reviews have a "now I know why they are wrong" vibe - which is the opposite to the author''s clearly stated reason this book was written, but it''s easy for some to distort it that way. Please precede any recommendations to others with a caution.

This book blows me away. It''s perfect. I even bought more copies for friends.This explains so much and takes the guess work out of why straight men and women and gay people act and are. This book makes people aware that if they are going to have children, what they, especially women, are going to have children, how "You are what you eat" not only applies to themselves, but to their possible offspring.

This shows how both men and women are strong and weak in certain areas because of how their brains are structured and how to take advantage of those differences. Why it would be better for females to have a more varied testing schedule in schools. Why men and women think differently and how to accept those differences and work with them. Why we area all dumb in certain areas and smart in others.

Men and women are sensitive in different areas. Relationships would be better if both men and women understood these differences and honored them. Men cannot be women as women cannot be men. The differences started when the sex was created in the womb. The differences show up in the first hour after birth and not because of how society molds us.

Read this book if you want to deal with people, both men and women.

This book is must reading, especially for psychologists, therapists and others who allege to be "professionals" in this explosive area. While the data provided in this very well researched book is old, the information and message remains timely: WOMEN AND MEN ARE DIFFERENT; its not simply a matter of "programming." WARNING: Reading this book requires the willingness and ability to follow the evidence and adjust one''s thinking accordingly--a characteristic in short supply among "clinical" psychologists and many therapists.

I acquired and read this book as a paperback long before Amazon became the prime source for my library. I was an undergraduate at the time (early ''80s) and I found the material in the text to be highly stimulating and somewhat controversial, given that third wave feminists were becoming empowered and strained to tell us that gender was a social construct. I had many discussions, though some might term them arguments, with fellow students in the university cafes and bars in which I made the obvious point that men and women had recognised their differences for millennia and it now seemed odd that only recently had it become reasonable to assert that, what seemed obvious to our ancestors for generation after generation, was so much tosh and that the whole enterprise was faulty from the start. Our sexual identity was culturally determined. Jessel and Moir had produced a text that I could cite to overcome animated and heated feminists who seemed convinced I was demon-spawn.
I may have loaned my original copy, which was heavily annotated with marginal thinking and lavish use of highlighting pen. It is no longer in my possession. I have become intrigued and mystified by the debate that still rages on this issue. I am as annoyed as I am bemused by what seems to be happening on North American campuses where SJWs seem to be running out of control. I was embarrassed by the feminist inspired critique of Cassie Jays film The Red Pill in my homeland (Australia). I wanted to reacquaint myself with a number of references to help should I again enter the sex-differentiation arena.
I looked at Simon Baron Cohen''s work on Amazon and was about to purchase it when I recalled my affection for this neat little book. A quick search showed that it was still available and had been reviewed and republished a number of times since my first exposure. I purchased it rather than Baron Cohen''s work, not necessarily because it is superior- I cannot say that- but because I found it so easy to read and I would like my young daughter to understand the material. I may still purchase The Essential Difference, as an added reference, but for the moment I am happy that this book remains relevant and concise.
I cannot recommend it highly enough for anyone interested in refuting the nonsense that passes for argument among the feminist tribes.

The science was interesting, and fits my own experience.The main difference between men and women that stood out to me is that women have superior verbal and language skills, while men have superior spatial skills, including math and geometry. This is obviously a generalization, and people of both genders violate this simplistic model. As an example of where it''s been generally true for me, I''m considered a pretty smart guy, and have a degree in Physics, but it''s not uncommon for me to find my head spinning trying to keep up with the conversations of women; they seem to be able to instantaneously perceive and express their feelings. None of the generalizations about the male brain and female brain show that one is superior to the other, just that they are different.
While the science was interesting, the book was filled with lots of casual opinions about the implications of the research. I agreed with some of them and disagreed with others, but the opinions were not clearly delineated as opinions, and without a careful reading, could be considered products of scientific research; this is my main reason for giving it 3 stars. My basic disagreement with their opinions is they seem to consider the women''s movement to be an aberration in culture that cannot last because "the science" is against it. I consider the women''s movement (and associated movements) to be an evolutionary force that is steering humanity in new directions. It''s true that we have further to go, and that taking into account the basic nature of men and women has been ignored or marginalized, but that is no reason to dismiss the basic shift toward valuing our subjective experience. Read it with a spoonful of salt.

One other thing, I always read the negative reviews. Reading these here, it seems many negative reviewers don''t realize scientists look for general truths about people. This book is written about those generalities but every single person is different. For instance, if you want to hire a field goal kicker, your best general chance of getting a good one would be to check out a lot of practiced men because men generally have twice the muscle mass of women. Or you could hire Mia Hamm whose kicking expertise enticed the Chiefs.
