A new book by Cordelia Fine, Testosterone Rex: Myths of Sex, Science, and Society, examines views about gender differences and why they are often wrong. Reviewer Annie Murphy Paul writes:
“She dissects as she goes, bringing a probing intelligence not only to what we believe about gender, and why it’s often wrong, but also to the history of how we came to think it was so. And lest we think gender stereotypes are themselves history, Fine produces an array of wincingly recent portrayals drawn from popular media.”
