She has worked as a clinical psychologist for twenty-five years and has taught at McGill University in Montreal, where lives in Montreal with her husband and three children.
"* 'Susan Pinker's wide-ranging look at the nature of the sexes is a highly readable and welcome contribution to this perennial debate.' Professor Simon Baron-Cohen 'The Sexual Paradox has forced me to have a rethink - and a radical one at that. In her intelligent, thoughtful and profoundly important work, Pinker takes us through the facts... Pinker's book should mark a watershed.' Rosie Boycott, Daily Mail 'At last, common sense... This highly readable book on a familiar theme succeeds where others do not, with its potent combination of scientific research, interviews and astute observation. It is a large contribution to an important debate.' Tony Little, Financial Times 'Raises intriguing questions... To me, this book comes as a relief.' Camilla Cavendish, The Times"
