Challenging gender perceptions,
This review is from: The Athena Doctrine: How Women (and the Men Who Think Like Them) Will Rule the Future (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is inevitably a contentious issue but given the prominence of theories such as emotional intelligence I decided to give the book a go. And boy (sorry for the gender pun) do the author's go for it. And perhaps they should given the dominance of the macho culture in so many areas of life. Anecdotally two of the best three line managers I've ever had were women. Anecdotally not particularly strong evidence but I am left rather bemused by some of the reaction to this book. Perhaps that says it all. This is an interesting if imperfect text but how many books can claim to be perfect. Of course it's all about perceptions. There are some powerful and captivating narratives in this well researched book. Recommended.
