Why can't a woman be more like a man? What is this thing called "feminine intuition"? Why are men better at reading maps, and women at other people's characters?

This is one of the most eye opening books I have ever read. It is generally overlooked how different men and women really are.
Any doubts I had about the authenticity of the claims made within the
