Customer Review

on 12 January 2011
After years of the media digging up every gender stereotype conceivable and labelling it "science" we finally have someone who actually has the sense to not only debunk the myth but really be honest about why the myth of Mars and Venus has been given such attention in recent years.

For anyone who looks at the "stupid male" stereotypes on TV and blames it on feminism they should read this book because they will see that the Mars/Venus revival is actually responsible for such awful stereotypes and that feminists like Cameron challenge gender stereotypes regardless of the gender they are targeting.

I also loved Cameron's sense of humour - very sharp and to the point. My only disagreement is that whilst she argued extensively against the cultural relativism of Deborah Tannen's "You just don't understand", their arguments at times seemed very similar. Excellent book though.
