A mind of its own : how your brain distorts and deceives by Cordelia Fine( Book )

19 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and Japanese and held by 1,706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exposing the mind's deceptions and exploring how the mind defends and glorifies the ego, [the author] illustrates the brain's tendency toward self-delusion. Unbeknownst to us, our brain - vain, emotional, immoral, deluded, pigheaded, secretive, weak-willed, and bigoted - pushes, pulls, twists, and warps our perceptions. Whether it be hindsight bias, wishful thinking, unrealistic optimism, or moral excuse-making, each of us has a slew of mind-bugs and ordinary prejudices that prevent us from seeing the truth about the world, the people around us, and ourselves.-Dust jacket
Delusions of gender : how our minds, society, and neurosexism create difference by Cordelia Fine( Book )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Turkish and held by 1,347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on the latest research in neuroscience and psychology, Cordelia Fine debunks the myth of hardwired differences between men's and women's brains, unraveling the evidence behind such claims as men's brains aren't wired for empathy and women's brains aren't made to fix cars. She then goes one step further, offering a very different explanation of the dissimilarities between men's and women's behavior. Instead of a "male brain" and a "female brain," Fine gives us a glimpse of plastic, mutable minds that are continuously influenced by cultural assumptions about gender.--From publisher description

Mothermorphosis : Australia's best storytellers write about becoming a mother( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Mothermorphosis, some of Australia's most talented writers and storytellers share their own experiences of motherhood. In telling their stories they articulate the complex internal conflicts, the exhilaration and the absurdity of the transformation that takes place when we become mothers. We read about the yearning for a child, the private and public expressions of maternal love, the questioning, uncertainty and unexpected delight, as well as unfathomable loss. Mothermorphosis reveals that there is no 'right' version of this epic experience and no single tale that could ever speak for all mothers. Yet it is in reading about other women's experiences the hard bits, the joyous bits and even the ridiculous bits that we can become more compassionate, not just to other mothers but hopefully to ourselves. Mothermorphosis includes writing from: Kate Holden, Kathy Lette, Lorelei Vashti, Rebecca Huntley, George McEnroe, Fatima Measham, Jo Case, Hilary Harper, Cordelia Fine, Jane Caro, Hannah Robert, Susan Carland, Kerri Sackville, Catherine Deveny, Lee Kofman and Dee Madigan." -- Publisher's website
Die Geschlechterlüge : die Macht der Vorurteile über Frau und Mann by Cordelia Fine( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in German and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frauen können nicht einparken und Männer nicht zuhören. Diese Überzeugung gehört wie viele weitere zu unserem Alltag. Die Neurowissenschaftlerin Cordelia Fine räumt unterhaltsam und scharfsinnig mit diesem Mythos auf. Vergessen Sie alles, was sie je über männliche und weibliche Gehirne gehört haben. Viele bekannte populärwissenschaftliche Bestseller behaupten auf der Basis neurowissenschaftlicher Untersuchungen: Männer und Frauen haben unterschiedliche Gehirne und daher unterschiedliche Begabungen. Vermeintliche natürliche Unterschiede werden aufgebaut und dienen als Erklärung für gesellschaftliche Rollenstereotype. Cordelia Fine entlarvt, wie unter dem Deckmantel der Wissenschaft schlampige Untersuchungen, oberflächlich gedeutete Forschung und vage Beweise zu angeblichen Tatsachen gemacht wurden. Sie zeigt, wie unser Leben als Mann und Frau stark von geschlechtertypischen Erwartungen und Vorurteilen beeinflusst wird, selbst wenn wir sie nicht gut heißen. Und welch subtile Macht Stereotype ausüben können. Das Einzige, was wissenschaftlich bewiesen ist: Es gibt eine neuronale Plastizität. Unser Gehirn entwickelt sich vor allem durch psychologische Einflüsse, Erfahrungen und Tätigkeiten. Und für Männer und Frauen gilt: Alles ist möglich!

Sex discrimination is supposedly a distant memory. This title dispels the pseudo-scientific claims about the differences between the sexes.
