The Sexual Paradox : Troubled boys, gifted girls and the real difference betwen the sexes

Author(s): Susan Pinker


In this controversial new book, Susan Pinker takes a hard look at how fundamental gender differences continue to play out in the workplace. By comparing the lives of troubled schoolboys and promising girls, Pinker turns several widely-held assumptions upside down: that the sexes are biologically equivalent; that intelligence is all it takes to succeed; and that men and women have identical goals. Pinker argues that men and women are not clones, and that gender discrimination is just one part of the persistent gender gap. A workplace that is satisfying to us all will recognize differences between the sexes, not ignore them or insist that we will all be the same. "The Sexual Paradox" reveals how gender differences influence ambition and success. Drawing on the experiences of many individual men and women, along with research evidence and examples from popular culture, Susan Pinker demonstrates how weaknesses can become strengths and that early achievements do not automatically translate into standard career triumphs. First published 2008.
