This review is from: The Essential Difference: Men, Women and the Extreme Male Brain (Paperback)
Written by a Cambridge professor of psychiatry and psychology, this book gives a fascinating insight into the difference between the male and female brain. It is essential reading for anyone in contact with children and those of the opposite sex, and will save you endless arguments, divorce, pointless relationships, possible litigation and most important - how to understand the differences between the male/female child and why they behave the way they do.
It includes chapters on the "extreme" male and female brain (Autism and Aspergers syndrome) and includes self - test apendices on your own ability to read another`s facial expressions (a great eye-opener), your degree of empathy towards others, systemising and finally autism.
Also by this author : Zero Degrees of Empathy (Essential reading for every human on earth - especially parents of young children and anyone in an abusive relationship).
