Barbie or Lego? Reading maps or reading emotions? Do you have a female brain or a male brain? Or is that the wrong question?

On a daily basis we face deeply ingrained beliefs that our sex determines our skills and preferences, from toys and colours to career choice and salaries. But what does this mean for our thoughts, decisions and behaviour?

Using the latest cutting-edge neuroscience, Gina Rippon unpacks the stereotypes that bombard us from our earliest moments and shows how these messages mould our ideas of ourselves and even shape our brains. Rigorous, timely and liberating, The Gendered Brain has huge repercussions for women and men, for parents and children, and for how we identify ourselves.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'A highly accessible book. It's also an important one... it has the power to do vastly more for gender equality than any number of feminist "manifestos"... revolutionary to a gloriuos degree ... supremely clear-eyed ... thought-provoking.' - Rachel Cooke, Observer

'A treasure trove of information and good humour, The Gendered Brain offers thought-provoking perspectives on the latest debates about sex, gender and the brain.' - Cordelia Fine, author of Testosterone Rex

'Essential reading.' - Katy Guest, Guardian 

'A smart and witty addition to the literature on sex differences. Gina Rippon is one of the most outspoken scientists in this area, and she debunks a whole host of sexist stereotypes in her new book.' - Angela Saini, author of Inferior

'[An] excellent...book... it will reward those willing to put in the effort... [and] put weapons in the arsenal of those trying to tackle sexism.' - Rosamund Urwin  Sunday Times
