Brain Sex: The Real Difference Between Men and Women
A classic, prize-winning novel about an epic migration and a lone woman haunted by the past in frontier Waipu. In the 1850s, a group of settlers established a community at Waipu in the northern part of New Zealand. They were led there by a stern preacher, Norman McLeod. The community had followed him from Scotland in 1817 to found a settlement in Nova Scotia, then subsequently to New Zealand via Australia. Their incredible journeys actually happened, and in this winner of the New Zealand Book Awards, Fiona Kidman breathes life and contemporary relevance into the facts by creating a remarkable fictional story of three women entangled in the migrations - Isabella, her daughter Annie and granddaughter Maria. McLeod's harsh leadership meant that anyone who ran counter to him had to live a life of secrets. The 'secrets' encapsulated the spirit of these women in their varied reactions to McLeod's strict edicts and connect the past to the present and future.

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 book were fully eradicated when I read an encyclopedia article titled, "Sex Differences in the Human Brain." It corroborated this book completely, down to every little detail.
This book is a must read for anyone who has ever started to wonder why men and women behave so differently. There are neurological, biological, and evolutionary reasons why people behave they way they do, and it's time for people to begin to understand them.
