    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.

    Beware of Confirmation Bias

    Starts with simple scientific differences between the sexes and then uses that to leap to how the very recent trends of not following gender stereotypes is causing the downfall of children. It seems like another older person who believes they are from the good old days and the new ways are to blame. I’m pretty sure cultures all over the world have been teaching manners and etiquette and honor and yet women have still been basically slaves. Parents are just not teaching kids to be nice to anyone, it’s not because Beth doesn’t use the words lady and gentlemen. I agree with his science and so think people should give a listen to this, I do recommend it. The boiled down idea that boys and girls are naturally different so plan your lessons accordingly is useful. I think he’s created a false dichotomy: either teach your kids that boys are like this and girls are like this or they will all be blowing each other in parking lots (I’m pretty sure men have been raping girls since the creation of the “gentleman”).
    Do listen though, just be aware of his leaps and get other sides as well. The ideas are useful!

    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.

    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.

    Science Not Ideology

    Prescient discussion on gender, a worthy listen for those of us perplexed by gender differences and the politicization of gender.

    the book is ok

    some of the point that he makes are very valid yet some of this point are left leaning and not neutral and he need to do more research on some of the topics. he also focus on very specific examples yet he disregards the majority of people. just because some people have 6 fingers does not mean every one has 6 fingers. also he blames alot of the sociological problems on video games, clearly shows that he does not know what he is talking about, the attack on male behavior is one of the reason why man would rather play video games we are not told we are toxic by any one will we play video games.

    One of the most helpful parenting books I've read

    A truly grounded, science-based and well thought out look at gender differences and parenting. I found this book to be genuinely helpful in parenting my 4-year-old boy and 2-year-old girl. I have read a lot of parenting books and do not say this lightly. I also appreciate that he sighted most of his claims. The author sites over 73 studies to back up his points.

    Amazing. Confirmed a lot of what I suspected

    I have always been doubtful of the whole “gender is a social construct” thing. There are some things that just seem inherently male and inherently female. Believe it or not, we are different in more ways than just genitalia.

    This book opened my eyes and made sense of homosexuality and bisexuality in women and men. It makes so much sense when I think about people I’ve known personally throughout my life.

    I feel more comfortable and accepting now that I’ve gained insight into these topics. I think this book is very important- not only for teachers and parents but everyone. No one can deny the comparisons the author makes between males and females. We all know that majority of the “stereotypes” mentioned and behavior between both the sexes is true. Whether we’d like to believe it or not.

    The difference is wholly biological and not something that was necessarily taught. Yes, environment does matter a great bit but we cannot disregard the biological factor that just makes men men and women women.

    The narrator does a fabulous job as well. Very clear spoken, pauses at the correct times, and is overall pleasant to listen to.

    This book gets 5 stars in each area! Great job to all who were involved!!
