Such a fantastic read. Clears up so many common misconceptions regarding nature versus nurture, sex versus gender, and the biology that 'defines' woman.

Pulitzer Prize-winner Natalie Angier explains and demystifies the beautiful thing that is the female body. She details both anatomy and physiology, organs and orgasms, and covers every topic imaginable with clear admiration and joy. She challenges gender stereotypes and shows that cultural biases have led to behaviors that are not necessarily natural.

Angier explains how biology affects who we are as women. It also explains who men are and how and why men differ from women. She avoids the typical name calling and gives us a fresh view of womanhood and "female nature". It's a beautiful and eye-opening book.
