Description

A revised and updated edition (with more than 70% new material) of the classic book about innate differences between boys and girls and how best to parent and teach girls and boys successfully, with new chapters on sexual orientation and on transgender and intersex kids.

Back in 2005, the first edition of Why Gender Matters broke ground in illuminating the differences between boys and girls—how they perceive the world differently, how they learn differently, how they process emotions and take risks differently. Dr. Sax argued that in failing to recognize these hardwired differences between boys and girls, we ended up reinforcing damaging stereotypes, medicalizing misbehavior, and failing to help kids to reach their full potential. In the intervening decade, the world has changed, with an avalanche of new research which supports, deepens, and expands Dr. Sax's work. This revised and updated edition includes new findings about how boys and girls interact differently with social media and video games; a new discussion of research on gender non-conforming, LGB, and transgender kids, new findings about how girls and boys see differently, hear differently, and even smell differently; and new material about the medicalization of misbehavior.

Confusion

The author mixes scientific studies with his own experience. Be wary and do not draw conclusions hastly. The truth value of his conclusions is not the same as those studies. Interesting book, but way too hard to be examinated seriously through an audio book.

Great and unexpected

I was really surprised by some of the things explained in this book. Some parts were joyously enlightening, while other parts made me uncomfortable because they challenged what I though I knew. I would highly recommend this book to any human, not just parents and teachers.

A must read in today’s confused society

I’ve watched a good friend transition from male to female and seen the pros and cons. I’ve listened to the children around me voice confusion on the differences between boys and girls. I’ve read the comments on social media about trans activism and the impact on our children with increasing dismay. This book walked me through the research and evidence and helped me understand what’s going on and how to deal with it. And also that we must use the very clear science to stop so many incorrect beliefs, like gender is a social construct, from destroying our society. Well structured, well written and well read. Thank you.

Amazing!

I really enjoyed listening to this book! I learned a lot and it was very interesting. The author did a great job writing and the narrator was excellent. I'm not a teacher or parent, but I'm happy I decided to read this book.

Very valuable resource

I'm currently listening to "Why Gender Matters" by Leonard Sax and am super impressed. It confirms so many things I've observed as both a mom and teacher. The gist: Biological differences are real and by disregarding them we're inadvertently perpetuating gender stereotypes because we don't allow our children to develop to the best of their potential. Boys and girls are not better or worse in any given subject but learn differently and if we teach them appropriately we achieve better results across the board. He's sharing a lot of facts and ideas that I think all parents and teachers should know but most of us probably never heard of. 🙃

Simply amazing

While most books discuss gender neutral characteristics, this books provides a sobering description of what we now know to be differences in gender.

The author is keen on distinguishing between stereotypical, socially constructed gender roles, and what is now observable through scientific methods. He is not trying to bring about the gender roles of the 1950's, but rather and a new, nuanced understanding that will benefit our boys and girls.

To ensure more equity and respect between the two sexes (male and female), we must examine our differences and honor the variety that each of us bring.

Mind blown

This book goes against so much of what I had been told to believe about gender and children. One may want to bristle against it as it is antithetical to political correctness. However, the science has compelled me to believe this truth. Understanding gender differences will help each of our children to be all the more successful.

Eye opening

My wife and I are currently pregnant, well my wife is currently carrying said child, and I have heard about Dr. Sax in some videos so I decided to check out this book and by god there is a lot of information in here and it all makes sense and is a great book for any parent or teacher. The differences between boys and girls is astronomical even though it may seem so small to us, it can literally be the difference between good education and jail time. Should be mandatory reading for any teacher or new parent!

You Can't Unhear Some Things

Eye-opening, in the kind of way that brings clarity to everything else you think about. Every human being ought to read this book before weighing in on current debates/arguments. It's clear, and it's a surprisingly enjoyable listen. Well worth my credit!

A must-read/listen for parents

Finally, someone who values science over political ideology. I love the data-driven approach and conclusions.

Engaging conveyance of technical information

Although I was a bit squeamish with the explicit nature of some of the subject matter, and dubious of the necessity of the "storytelling" format of his case studies, this book sheds some much-needed light on the quickly eroding domain of society wisdom in gender. I eventually found the detailed accounts of his case studies engaging and felt they provided a much-need humanization of those folks struggling to find a fit for themselves in modern society, while at the same time being bluntly honest about the detrimental effects of cultural fads in this area of study. Although I think this is difficult subject matter for anyone to deal with, it's a necessary read for anyone concerned about the health and welfare of children and young adults.
