Women arent from Venus and men arent from Mars, though we sometimes feel they must be. The differences in behaviour between men and women are constantly remarked upon, yet poorly understood.
In this persuasive volume, David Geary argues that the differences between the sexes are best illuminated by Darwins theory of evolutionary selection. "Male, Female" shows how one of our most fundamental goals in life - survival through reproduction - is key to understanding such differences as preferred attributes in mates; level of investment in parenting; boys and girls play patterns and social interactions; the evolution and development of the mind; and even in rates of violence, mental disorders, academic abilities and occupational interests and achievement.
