Summary
Bursting some of the essentialist myths about gender difference, the authors explain why it is important to move beyond biological determinism and sexual stereotypes to see how behavior and thinking really occur in individuals. 60,000 first printing.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Drawing on years of exhaustive research, psychologist Rosalind Barnett and media critic Caryl Rivers reveal how a toxic mix of junk science, pop psychology and media hype has profoundly influenced our thinking and behavior, causing us to make dangerous decisions about how we choose our partners, raise our children, and manage our careers.
Same Difference reveals how the emphasis on innate difference between the sexes has compromised education, workplace relations, marriages, and friendships. The authors dismantle, one by one, commonly accepted notions of biological destiny, from the "math gene" to maternal instinct.

About: From respected academics like Carol Gilligan to pop-psych gurus like John Gray, and even the controversial Harvard President Lawrence Summers, the message has long been the same: Men and women are fundamentally different, and trying to bridge the gender gap can only lead to grief.
