In chapter 9, the book describes differences in specific mental abilities between men and women. It was specifically interesting to me because of how accurate it was compared to my real life experiences. The book explains that men do better than women on most tasks requiring spatial ability and also geography. The book also explains how woman tend to do better than men on some verbal tasks, such as spelling, writing, and pronouncing words. I've noticed in life that I have been quite geographically inclined. I have been told I have great sense of direction and that I also can remember roads and routs very well. However, I have always had trouble with English courses and activities involving reading and writing. I know this isn't a definite science and that some men are better than women at verbal tasks and that some woman have more geographic skills than men, but for me this definitely holds true.
The Book was Right
