Product description


"Fascinating, insightful and deeply captivating. Every thinking man and woman should read this book."
–Louann Brizendine, M.D., author of The Female Brain

"All these many years of running a business, I thought I was an anomaly. Susan Pinker’s work has grounded my intuitions in reality: a woman’s success is going to knock the spiritual stuffing right out of her if she tries to come at it from traditional angles. Instead she must invent a workplace that not only provides food for the table but gives social and emotional meaning to her life. Susan Pinker helps you understand that it’s not you that’s crazy, it’s the system."
–Margot Franssen, social activist and co-founder of The Body Shop Canada

"Pinker, a psychologist and columnist for the Globe & Mail, presents a compelling case for a biological explanation of why men and women make different career choices. … She may draw a great deal of fire for this book, but her strong evidence could also open a better-informed discussion of the issues."
Publishers Weekly

From the Hardcover edition.
