Summary
Angier takes the reader on a mesmerizing tour of female anatomy and physiology. She shows how cultural biases have influenced research and consequently lead to dubious conclusions about "female nature." An essential read for anyone interested in how biology affects who we are-as women, as men, and as human beings
