Essential Difference: Men, Women and the Extreme Male Brain (read this book)

The Essential Difference: Men, Women and the Extreme Male Brain
by Simon Baron-Cohen

Baron-Cohen gives a great understanding of autism and the extreme male brain. If you are interested in psychology and many of the tested differences between men and women, this is an interesting book. Baron-Cohen has a lot of deep insights … unfortunately he also draws a lot of unsupported conclusions that don’t seem to add up. To really get a lot out of this book, you’ll have to carefully make your own judgments as to which of the conclusions you should believe.

(also – the second half of the book is FAR more interesting than the first half … so if you are suffering in the first half, just skip ahead)

(special thank you to Courtney Smith for sending me the book)
