Editorial Reviews


"Strongly recommended. […] We need to support the fight-back."
—Richard Dawkins, evolutionary biologist and bestselling author of The Selfish Gene

“[Soh’s] new book, The End of Gender, lays out with exceptional care not just why we have got into the current impasse, but how we might get out of it.”
—Douglas Murray, The London Times

“One of The End of Gender’s bravest themes comes in Soh’s discussion of childhood gender dysphoria. […] Be brave like Debra Soh.”
—Abigail Shrier, Commentary Magazine

“Throughout, Soh stresses that she sympathizes with individuals who are struggling with their sexual identity, and supports everyone’s right to determine what they believe is best for them. She just expresses the hope that these crucial decisions can be based on scientific fact, and shared through authoritative, transparent, and safe platforms.”

"Dr. Debra Soh's book is not only eminently reasonable and beautifully-written, it is brave and vital. Rooted in data but accessible to the common person, this is the rare book that can only be labeled 'must-read.'"
—Ben Shapiro, #1 New York Times bestselling author, Editor-in-Chief of The Daily Wire, and Host of "The Ben Shapiro Show"

“By far the best I’ve read on this topic.”
—Michael Shermer, PhD, Presidential Fellow at Chapman University and New York Times bestselling author of Giving the Devil His Due

“Very, very good. Quite feminist, very liberal, highly compassionate, thoroughly evidence-based, utterly reasonable.”
—Helen Pluckrose, editor in chief of Areo Magazine and author of Cynical Theories

“An easy-to-read introduction to the various current debates over sex, gender, and transgender. Soh also covers adjacent topics, such [as] autogynephilia and research on the origins of sexual orientation.”
—Ray Blanchard, PhD, Full Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto and researcher in sexual orientation, paraphilias, and gender dysphoria

“[A] beautifully calm, rational and precision-guided dissection…her exposé will fall like rain on parched earth.”
—Barbara Kay, The Post Millennial

"Sex and gender are always gripping topics, and The End of Gender does not disappoint. Debra Soh has given us a lucid explanation of the latest science and politics of men and women. And she fearlessly pushes back against the notion that the only way to advance equality is to scramble biology, language, and common sense, and to intimidate anyone who doesn’t go along."
—Steven Pinker, Johnstone Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, and the author of The Blank Slate and Enlightenment Now

"The longer that academic science suppresses its carefully constructed knowledge about the biology of sex in deference to a rapidly mutating set of political taboos, the less claim it will have to public respect or attention.  It is to be hoped that Debra Soh’s The End of Gender inspires more scientists to stand up to the ideological myths around sex and gender in defense of scientific truth."
—Heather Mac Donald, Thomas W. Smith fellow at the Manhattan Institute and author of The Diversity Delusion

"There is no more treacherous topic on the current intellectual landscape than the biological basis of gender. The fearless Dr. Debra Soh is an expert guide navigating the jungle of umbrella categories like "Trans" and "LGBTQx" to let us know how they are informed by our scientific understanding of biology. If you are genuinely interested beyond sloganeering about the eternal braid of gender, sexuality and biology, then this book is required reading."
—Eric R Weinstein, PhD, Managing Director at Thiel Capital and Host of The Portal

"Debra Soh's clearly written book walks the reader through the science and politics of sex and gender research. Her discussion is accessible, balanced and thoughtful and will advance the study of how biological and social factors interact in the development of sex and gender."
—Professor Simon Baron-Cohen, Director of the Autism Research Centre at Cambridge University

5.0 out of 5 stars To the curious it’s a well researched book not anecdotal
By Greenpoint Resident on August 8, 2020
The End Of Gender isn’t anti-trans, instead it’s a science based, well researched book about the negative consequences of pushing kids towards drugs and bodily modification before their frontal lobes are even developed none the less having gone through puberty.

This phenomenon needs unbiased research, especially because children will mostly never be fertile again if they choose to as adults later on because of invasive procedures and hormone blockers.

Many can’t do their jobs bc a minority of people have blind faith no harm could come of subjecting children we would let near 18+ choices make choices fueled by a social trend, ideology, and activist pressure silencing real science. As a parent wouldn't you want to know if the drugs you're about to give your child could do harm?

Give it an objective read there is no hatred, see her interview on JRE, Debra Soh is a scientist and journalist that has put the Unbiased Work In like any good researcher should do! There are myths in society and they need rigorous non-ideological research done, the ultimate harm is always done out of fear based thinking. Happiness especially for our young cannot be a drug and a scalpel. When did life get so complicated?
