Although they represent 10 per cent of the population, left-handers may be one of the last unorganized and discriminated against minorities in society. In this account Stanley Coren makes use of the latest research to demonstrate that while left-handers suffer more from a variety of physical and psychological problems (and may even die as much as nine years earlier than right-handers), they may also be more intelligent and creative in some spheres. He examines the implications of these differences and, most importantly, addresses the question of how we can make the world more comfortable and safer for left-handers.
