Hyde examines the balance of cultural and biological similarities (and differences) between the genders, noting how these characteristics may affect issues of equality, and also how men and women behave towards one another. By putting into context the proliferation of research in the field and clearly explaining the relationship between gender and emotion, the author helps demystify the scientific process and study of feminist psychology. Students receive a strong foundation for understanding the influences of gender, race, and ethnicity on psychology and society, as well as strategies for thinking critically about pop culture versus academic feminism as it relates to psychology.

    the class I had that this textbook was for, was very interesting!! and I learned a lot from it, and I learned a lot from the book too, but there was defiantly bias in this textbook, which was annoying! I liked the points they made, but it was obvious the author had some biases against men, and it was suppose to be a book for gender psychology, and I feel there should of been more male information in the book. it was more of a women's studies book, which as I said made good points and presented g the class I had that this textbook was for, was very interesting!! and I learned a lot from it, and I learned a lot from the book too, but there was defiantly bias in this textbook, which was annoying!

I did enjoy the chapters there were on men and found them interesting, but I feel it would be better to have those chapters written by actual males. male feminists.

    This is a fantastic book for men and women alike. It helped me, as a woman, to understand myself better, but it would even help men to understand our differences and to gain a little insight into various underlying issues in society they may not have noticed. I would love to read an updated version, as the studies referenced were done in the 80s and 90s.

    This was the ONLY book that I read every word of every chapter for a class in college. It is loaded with facts backed by current research on gender "differences" but it reads like an enjoyable piece of literature rather than a dry dull scientific paper. This is one of my all time favorite books that would do a lot of good if more people read it. This was the ONLY book that I read every word of every chapter for a class in college.
