The Sexual Paradox-Susan Pinker
I recently bought this book 'The Sexual Paradox' by Susan Pinker. It has proved to be a very enjoyable read. Pinker discusses the differences between the sexes. Why men still dominate in careers like science and engineering and why so many successful women decide to drop very high paid careers for ones that are much more poorly paid. She also looks into the why a lot of men who did poorly at school do much better than their female peers who excelled at school. This book is great for anyone who is interested in human nature and gender relations.
