Book review: Delusions of Gender by Cordelia Fine

I recently reviewed Cordelia Fine’s excellent book, Delusions of Gender: How Our Minds, Society, and Neurosexism Create Difference at the Thinking Meat Project. The book dissects some of the pop psychology takes on gender differences in cognition and offers a useful and enlightening corrective, as well as an engaging review of what we know so far about how gender influences our behavior. In Fine’s own words, “to those interested in gender equality there is nothing at all frightening about good science. It is only carelessly done science, or poorly interpreted science, or the neurosexism it feeds, that creates cause for concern.”
