Books I Read in June

Um, that'd be one then...

Total 1 books:
Delusions of Gender: The Real Science Behind Sex Differences (Cordelia Fine)

This book has quite mixed reviews on Amazon and my feelings are broadly similar. The book is highly critical of pop-science gender books and yet delivers something that feels broadly the same. On the plus side, there's lots of interesting research referenced - lots to follow up - with a selection of critical points. Unfortunately the criticisms seem weak and uninteresting in many cases with no significant opposition beyond the (often obvious) failures in previous research or writing. Flawed and not interesting enough to keep around or reread.
