The neuroendocrinologist formerly known as Prince

Trust Ann Althouse to come up with the best summary of the pop psychology of sex differences ("My brain as a hypodermic needle. Your brain as an international airport.", 11/28/2006):

I love when a book explains supposedly scientific information in language that approximates that Prince song "International Lover."

That's such a nice summary, it doesn't matter than Ann gets the name of the book wrong (it should be "The Female Brain", not "The Female Mind"), or that she quotes the Daily Mail's bullet points as if they were true.

If you care about the science as well as the rock lyrics, there are some links here.
