    One thought on “Sex on the Brain: The Biological Differences Between Men and Women”

    1. We all know that men and women are VERY different. The question that arises is, why? I mean, REALLY why? Moving past procreation, why do we even need procreation? Why not just be asexual? Is it merely to have good genes? I suppose the “why” question can’t ever truly be answered but I turned to Deborah Blum for some insight.Sex on the Brain is instantly informative and “fun”, explaining behavioral biology and sex choice. Even by page 20, I already came across several tidbits of informat [...]

    2. I don't know why but I don't think I was paying attention when I read this book. Right after I read it I couldn't think of a thesis that the book was pushing. Too bad. I should reread it.I'm realizing that there was no real theme because the book was a pretty introductory book. A good place to start. There was no "theory" in it because it was just laying the groundwork.Quotes:"Remember, these questions refer to average behaviors. They are not individual predictions.""The danger of leaning too ha [...]

    3. Even though research in the area of behavioral sciences, hormones, and gender differences have been flourishing in the past two decades, this well-written book still poses questions relevant to our status nowadays. Now I'm off looking for the answers and recent research on this topic (hopefully in a shortened version, such as in this book). I would have definitely liked to read it earlier, especially during adolescence. Even though its target audience does not seem to be the young population, th [...]

    4. I really liked this. It gave a lot of strong evidence that the differences between men and women are not strictly biological or cultural (nature or nurture) but a mixing of the two, where biology effects culture, but also culture can change biology, interestingly enough. you'll have to read the book to find out how Warning though, there is a lot of information that is thrown at you, and sometimes it's a bit much to wrap your mind around, but totally worth it in the end. A great addition to biolo [...]

    5. This book that identifies the key differences between the genders is a fascinating read, and would receive a good review from anyone mature or understanding enough to handle the subject material. If you have biases entering this book about gender I don't reccomend it as this book is likely to break them which for a simple minded person might upset them. This book would be best for someone who's an expert on the subject of gender rather than someone looking to validate opinions. If this book does [...]

    6. Loved this book! Amen is an excellent writer and I appreciated how applicable all of his teachings and explanations are. He takes each area of the brain and breaks it down to each pieces' specific function and walks the reader through what the functions are and what happens if that piece of the brain is not functioning well. He also gives suggestions for behavior modification techniques like vitamins, medications, and cognitive therapy. Excellent book for understanding why men are men, and why w [...]

    7. When I started this one I was wondering what I was thinking because I've read far too much evolutionary biology over the past decade but Blum's book is still REALLY interesting! There's a strong focus on zoology in addition to primatology and anthropology, which is refreshing, but I really enjoyed the section on hormones most of all. If you have a passing interest in this subject, read this book. It's a little dated (mid-90s, pre-DNA sequencing) but still a good overview of the discipline and wr [...]

    8. It's been a long while since I read this incredibly entertaining and informative book but it's one I recommend whenever I can.The author is a science writer and says she realized when her toddler son pretended he was a dinosaur and tried to eat her up that there WAS TRULY A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MALE AND FEMALE.She set out to unearth information on evolutionary biology, chemistry and other fields to illuminate the differences.

    9. This book provided a journey into the biological influences that shape human relationships. I liked how the author explained ways in which males and females differ and the role that hormones play in attraction and mate selection. Far from a college textbook but not a pool-side read either. Despite the focus on hetero sex there is a good chunk of research on gay and lesbian relationships. This book helped me understand my lizard brain.

    10. page 11: essentially opposites attract because the less alike a couple’s genes are, the more variability, the greater the ability to respond to genetic injury and less likely that defective genes will be inherited. *hence marrying second cousins can cause “problem” children**I think the basis of this, as cultural influences decrease, will lead to more and more interracial relationships eventually leading us towards “one race”

    11. Easy to read and, as with every topic dealing with brains and behavior, fun for me to consider. Like Musicophila and The Blank Slate, only with the other two books the authors are/were scientists (Oliver Sacks and Steven Pinker) and the cover art is much better.

    12. Some good points, but mostly his was an anecdotal book with lots of hyped up claims not backed by data. Bah! Oh, and a giant advertisement (albeit more tastefully done than some other books I've read. Blink was a much better sex-on-the-brain book.

    13. The other gender differences book (I also read "Brain Sex"). This was a better book, though I don't remember why. Presumably more interesting stories and experiments, and more presentation of the complex nature of the world, less argumentation to a particular point.

    14. Almost 20 years old now, this well-written, well-organized compilation of gender differences was fascinating. It gives footnoted underpinnings to some of the more headline-grabbing studies floating around today.
