book – science and fiction

just read the essential difference by simon baron cohen — going on about the testosterone fuelled differences in male and female cognitive dispositions.. men on average are more systematic, women are more empathic.. (and how autism is instance of an ‘extreme male brain’ high syst + low emp) not much evidence to back it up and book fairly short but he might be onto something..

then i tried to read RIM by Alexander Besher – but have given up on it.. I’ve read the sequel MIR which was hardly shit at all but this one is dull, lumbering and to enthralled to it’s own weak presumptions.. basically total mess of karmic sci-fi and eastern mysticism.. with no story to grip you and allow suspension of critical faculties. into the cosmic bin with it.
