    Review text
    Men monopolise the TV remote control; women eat chocolate and go shopping. Though men cannot find a matching pair of socks, their CD collections are always in alphabetical order; women can locate missing car keys but they cannot follow a map. According to Allan and Barbara Pease, the reason why men and women are so different is to do with their prehistoric roles. Women were the gathers and nurturers, while men hunted and protected. Women had to do a range of jobs and also had to be sensitive to the needs of their family and community. Men had the straightforward task of going out and catching food. The modern roles, abilities and aptitudes of the two sexes arise out of this demarcation of early humans' tasks. Much of what Allan and Barbara Pease have to say may seem like stereotyping. Is it true that all men talk in shorter, more structured sentences than women do? Are there no women who flick through the channels rather than watching a programme all the way through? However, the Peases have certainly chosen the sort of characteristics that the reader may well identify from their partners, relatives or colleagues. Though the book is quite light-hearted, it does present some sound scientific and anthropological evidence, such as information about how the brain works. Some interesting facts emerge. Women have evolved with much better peripheral vision than men, which is why men have to turn their heads to look at attractive women, leaving them open to accusations of 'ogling'; women can watch good-looking men without making it so obvious! Women's hearing is also more sensitive, so they are able to pick nuances of tone and expression of which men deny all knowledge. This is a book which could lead to family arguments but it might also help couples to understand each other better, and it's a lot of fun on the way. (Kirkus UK)
