Am I a Woman?: A Skeptic's Guide to Gender
What is it that really makes a woman a woman? Is it anatomy? Does she behave differently than men? Does it matter how others perceive her? In this sharp, funny, and insightful book, Cynthia Eller discovers that the answer is harder to pinpoint than it might seem.
"Reading Cynthia Eller's latest book is like having a spirited late-night talk with a close friend. . . . Eller's conversational tone demystifies the statistics and will leave readers of either gender questioning the roles we so readily assume each day." —Elle.com
"Why should this [book] matter? Because, Eller writes, only 14 percent of Congress is female; few among the Fortune 500 CEOs are women; a woman's right to an abortion is still under attack and 683,000 rapes occur each year in the United States." —Susan Salter Reynolds, Los Angeles Times
"Eller . . . hits the bulls-eye with brilliant, amusing truisms about the sexes." —Janet Sassi, Library Journal
