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.
This is a very intimate, detailed description of how "woman parts" work and why they do what they do. It also goes into details on how men and women differ and why. You might want to have a tablet ready to Google some of the many long, scientific words the author uses. I wish I had done this at the beginning, but when I thought about it I was almost finished. At the end of the book, the author goes into how women need to push forward, to become more equal to men, especially in their jobs, wages, etc. Even with the "big words", it was a very interesting read. Look for more of Natalie's book. They are all wonderful.
