The author has taken the stereotypes and tried to support them using weak scientific evidence. The book reduces very complex issues and is ridiculous in some of its conclusions. ofcourse stereotypes come from somewhere and have some truth to them .... but there are many women who like commitment free sex and there are men who are complex emotionally and who are sensitive. This book simply puts pressure on people to behave in a particular way. It's great to want to learn about the biological differences between men and women, but this book does not give any answers or provide inspirational material .... also, it has its facts all wrong about the brains of homosexual men!! AND, it is full of typos and is repetitive ..... don't waste your money .... i recommend 'anatomy of Desire' for those interested in the issue of evolution and the differences in the behaviour of men and women.
