  • A highly accessible book. It’s also an important one… it has the power to do vastly more for gender equality than any number of feminist “manifestos”… revolutionary to a gloriuos degree ... supremely clear-eyed … thought-provoking

    Rachel Cooke, Observer
  • A treasure trove of information and good humour, The Gendered Brain offers thought-provoking perspectives on the latest debates about sex, gender and the brain.

    Cordelia Fine, author of TESTOSTERONE REX
  • Essential reading

    Katy Guest, Guardian
  • A smart and witty addition to the literature on sex differences. Gina Rippon is one of the most outspoken scientists in this area, and she debunks a whole host of sexist stereotypes in her new book.

    Angela Saini, author of INFERIOR
  • [An] excellent…book… it will reward those willing to put in the effort… [and] put weapons in the arsenal of those trying to tackle sexism

    Rosamund Urwin, Sunday Times
  • A brilliant and thorough debunking of the popular myths around sex differences in brains and behaviour.

    Dr Emily Grossman, broadcaster
  • A fresh and much-needed perspective on the gender debate

    Dr Anne-Marie Imafidon, founder of STEMETTES
  • The history of sex-difference research is rife with innumeracy [and] misinterpretation… Rippon, a leading voice against the bad neuroscience of sex difference, uncovers so many examples in this ambitious book that she uses a whack-a-mole metaphor to evoke the eternal cycle… a juicy history… [and] the book accomplishes its goal of debunking the concept of a gendered brain

    Lise Eliot, Nature
  • Rippon…takes a scalpel to the research surrounding sex differences in the brain with precision and humour, exposing everything… [The] examples are what makes The Gendered Brain so enjoyable… [and] enlightening

    Sue Nelson, Financial Times
  • Rippon… [writes] in a cheerful, no-nonsense style, she draws on a dizzying array of studies to conclude, rather thrillingly, that the premise underpinning over 150 years of scientific endeavour is plan wrong… a convincing case
