Can’t wait to dig into this new non-fiction book:

Non-fic Reading Sept 2017

Inferior: How Science Got Women Wrong — and the New Research That’s Rewriting the Story by Angela Saini was published earlier this year, but I’ve only gotten it into my hands now.

In an interview, the author has this to say about her intent:

“[…] what I really wanted to understand is, ‘What does science say about women?’ Because I think different societies have different views on women, and different women have different views about themselves, so it’s a complicated picture.

[…]

“I don’t think I’ve provided a library of truths here, because that’s not how science works. Science is a process and it gets towards there slowly, but what I really want to do is pick apart the arguments and controversies.”

Read the rest of interview with Saini at New York Magazine.

Note: I wasn’t paid or perked to mention this; just passing along a good thing.
