Forget Mars and Venus

When I Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus, I was sorely unimpressed with its (lack of) scientific rigour. I came across a Rebuttal from Uranus, a passionate challenge to Gray’s assertions, but found it equally lacking in scientific study.

Happily, Edge has run several stories recently relating to gender differences including a debate between Pinker vs. Spelke on the results of recent gender difference studies, John Gottman’s Mathematics of Love, and Simon Baron-Cohen’s Assortative Mating Theory. Good stuff.
