This is an auction for THE FIRST SEX: THE NATURAL TALENTS OF WOMEN AND HOW THEY ARE CHANGING THE WORLD by Helen Fisher.

Amazon.com review:

"Tomorrow belongs to women," notes celebrated anthropologist Helen Fisher. In her explosive new book, The First Sex, she illustrates this enticing assertion. Drawing on original research, Fisher reveals how women and their natural talents are changing the world, making them ideal leaders and successful shapers of business and society - today and on into the twenty-first century. Looking back to prehistoric times, Fisher shows how the special structure of the female brain enables women to do "web thinking" or "synthesis thinking," as compared to men's more linear or "step" thinking. With lively anecdotes and fascinating stories, Fisher reveals how women's special talents - superior verbal abilities, people savvy, acute senses, healing techniques, and more - are geared to success in today's worlds of medicine, education, communications, law, philanthropy, and government. Changes in society - the growth of the communications economy and new trends in family - are also giving women an advantage: women's unique talents are especially needed in our modern age. This eye-opening book will change the way you see yourself, your family, and the world around you, including every man and woman you meet."
