Format: Paperback
Like others, I was told this was perhaps the most unbiased book on the market for psychology of gender. It very well might be, but don't let such an endorsement fool you: the book is extremely anti-male, presenting males in a poor light whenever feasible. The book clearly focuses on debunking popular anti-woman stereotypes and urban myths, but does so with an equally clear offensive mindset towards men. Use of citation is interesting to note, as others have pointed out: several sections proclaim statistical information without a citation, and many of inferences she presents as fact are really from singular studies with questionable methodologies. A large number of the studies she cites as having important results and subsequently draws strong conclusions from have actually never been replicated; while she does have the scientific integrity to present some of the conflicting research, the reader is lead to believe that only one study has had conflicting results, when many times this is not the case.

Perhaps the thing that bothered me the most is her systematic manipulation of factual statistics. For example, when comparing male-female athletic performance, rather than citing current data she looks back to find instances where the current world records have over-taken athletes from decades past. Rather than citing research that actually compares men and women, she presents studies on all-female groups as a valid basis to make comparisons (in other words, we get tallies of female performance but not of male, yet the reader is told this indicates similarities between male and female performance).

It's the exact book I needed for my class. I love that each chapter has a summary and the book is easy to understand.

Format: Paperback
So I bought this book for school for a psychology of Gender class. The book was incredibly biased and boring and overall completely missed the point of psychology alltogether in its attempts to be feminist. I am not sure how this managed to become a required textbook as it takes a long time to say absolutely nothing about the human condition or how to help anyone. It should be called "A List of random facts that will help you understand the feminist psyche... oh and by the way we get payed by making you memorize this garbage... book"
