Teachers and parents don't want to stereotype children based on gender, but they do need to know that they function and learn differently. The author heads a clinic that studies these differences as they're understood through the perspectives of neurology, psychiatry, developmental psychology, and gender studies. This is a detailed, intellectual audio that includes scientific references, and yet it manages to convey a level of humanity and empathy that is not always found in social science books. It's exceptionally easy to hear and understand, especially in Chris Ryan's hands. He has the perfect documentary-style voice for this combination of scientific insights, practical advice, and inspiration. This program is highly recommended for people everywhere who want help understanding their children and students. T.W.
