An agenda-setting, myth-debunking book by neuroscientist Professor Gina Rippon that demolishes the idea of biology as destiny and the myth of the male or female brain.

Reviews

"A highly accessible book. It's also an important one... it has the power to do vastly more for gender equality than any number of feminist "manifestos"... revolutionary to a gloriuos degree ... supremely clear-eyed ... thought-provoking" -- Rachel Cooke * Observer *
"A treasure trove of information and good humour, The Gendered Brain offers thought-provoking perspectives on the latest debates about sex, gender and the brain." -- Cordelia Fine, author of TESTOSTERONE REX
"Essential reading" -- Katy Guest * Guardian *
"A smart and witty addition to the literature on sex differences. Gina Rippon is one of the most outspoken scientists in this area, and she debunks a whole host of sexist stereotypes in her new book." -- Angela Saini, author of INFERIOR
"[An] excellent...book... it will reward those willing to put in the effort... [and] put weapons in the arsenal of those trying to tackle sexism" -- Rosamund Urwin * Sunday Times *
"A brilliant and thorough debunking of the popular myths around sex differences in brains and behaviour." -- Dr Emily Grossman, broadcaster
"A fresh and much-needed perspective on the gender debate" -- Dr Anne-Marie Imafidon, founder of STEMETTES
"The history of sex-difference research is rife with innumeracy [and] misinterpretation... Rippon, a leading voice against the bad neuroscience of sex difference, uncovers so many examples in this ambitious book that she uses a whack-a-mole metaphor to evoke the eternal cycle... a juicy history... [and] the book accomplishes its goal of debunking the concept of a gendered brain" -- Lise Eliot * Nature *
"Rippon...takes a scalpel to the research surrounding sex differences in the brain with precision and humour, exposing everything... [The] examples are what makes The Gendered Brain so enjoyable... [and] enlightening" -- Sue Nelson * Financial Times *
"Rippon... [writes] in a cheerful, no-nonsense style, she draws on a dizzying array of studies to conclude, rather thrillingly, that the premise underpinning over 150 years of scientific endeavour is plan wrong... a convincing case" -- Charlie McCann * Tablet *
