Format: Paperback
This is a well-researched, well-written book with clear, concise explanations of gender differences in emotional and communication styles. Turner provides practical and helpful exercises to facilitate understanding and bridging these differences... making difference WORK for a more vital, successful workplace for all employees. I highly recommend the book and would certainly consider inviting the writer to do a workshop in your corporate or legal office.

Format: Paperback
Caroline Turner provides a clear-eyed and readable explication of gender differences, convincingly integrating the findings of neuroscience and psychology - especially developmental and evolutionary. But Difference Works is more than an extension of the work of Tannen and the gender scientists; it is the product of a practitioner rather than a researcher. This is most clearly reflected in the section of each chapter entitled, "What Do I DO With This Information?"

The book is heuristically strategic, continually prompting reflection, self-examination and ultimately personal change, should the reader be so inclined. Not only does Turner provide personifications to assist the reader in visualizing the concepts and patterns described, but she supplements the narrative with visual aids in the form of clear tables, diagrams and continua. There is also an integrated website with opportunities for reader interaction.

Turner has clearly done her homework, and presents the material with consistent balance and objectivity. Some elegant reframes help the reader grasp gender-related conundrums. There is just the right amount of reference to normal distributions to aid in the development of a perspective on the universe of behavior. While clarifying and explaining the differences along the masculine-feminine continuum, Turner consistently maintains a firm situationist position regarding the relative effectiveness of the behavior employed, emphasizing awareness and intentionality in our behavioral choices.

Regardless of one's gender biases, this book is worth the read.

Missing: Author and subject indices. Looking forward to those in the second edition.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It might sound cliche, but Difference really does Work, and Caroline Turner helped me to understand why. It's not just a nice to have to survive and thrive in the work jungle...it's a must have. And, when you see how to go about making it count - exalting our differences and reaching for similarities - it all makes so much sense. This is not just your Mars/Venus remash...it's the real deal from someone who has lived it, worked it, breathed it.

Get your copy. Scour it. Start relating in ways you might not have thought possible. Bravo, Ms. Turner, and thank you for a much needed body of work!

By David J. Owens on February 22, 2012
Format: Paperback
The difference between masculine and feminine approaches at work has been thoroughly researched by Caroline and she presents a clear explanation of how to implement her recommendations. I have no doubt that thousands - and maybe TENS of thousands - of CEO's, directors, managers, companies and employees can benefit immensely from reading this book and using her ideas of how to make Difference Work!

Format: Paperback
As its title indicates, Caroline Turner's "Difference Works" makes the case for "improving retention, productivity, and profitability through inclusion" of both masculine and feminine approaches in the work place. But what I think are even more valuable are her convincing explanations of why these gender differences exist (and are highly likely to continue to exist) and her suggestions on how managers can conciliate these approaches for the betterment of their companies
