"Richard Lippa's book can serve us well in bringing together the current body of research on both sides of the nature-nurture debate. He presents his findings and offers opinions in a nonbiased manner."
"...a lively, engaging, and fair-minded 'primer' and an ideal book for courses on gender studies, the psychology of women or of men, and gender roles. Its wealth of updated information will stimulate professional readers, its accessible style will captivate student readers, and its forthright examination of the relation between scientific debate and public policy will captivate general readers."
"I would highly recommend this book to anyone, students or faculty...I learned new things and I've been reading this literature for decades....It's a great book."
