The mysteries of evolution are not a new subject for Angier, a Pulitzer Prize-winning biology writer for the New York Times whose previous books include The Beauty of the Beastly and Natural Obsessions. The strengths of Woman begin with Angier's witty and evocative prose style, but its real contribution is the way it expands the definition of female "geography" beyond womb, breasts, and estrogen, down as far as the bimolecular substructure of DNA and up as high as the transcendent infrastructure of the human brain. --Patrizia DiLucchio --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
This is a very informative book.
It's fascinating how she weaves things like evolutionary biology, history, and personal interviews with women into a cohesive story about the female body.
I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in learning a little more about the wonders and mysteries of being a woman.
