In Mapreaders and Multitaskers, Gavin Evans argues that male and female minds do not emerge from different planets, and that our emotional and intellectual capacities are moulded more by culture than biology.
Gavin Evans was born in London but grew up mainly in South Africa where he became involved in the anti-apartheid campaign while working as a journalist. He returned to London 24 years ago and teaches at Birkbeck College, University of London. Mapreaders and Multitaskers is his seventh book.
“Readers who are not familiar with these arguments, and the science of the past forty years that supports them, should read this book. Especially fathers who have daughters, as Evans does.”
