The Fate of Gender by Frank Browning

The Fate of Gender: Nature, Nurture, and the Human Future - Frank Browning

Quite a mess of a book. It jumped all over the place without any coherent structure. The content seemed to involve anything even slightly related to sex, gender, or sexuality, with sex and gender often confused for one another. Very light on science and facts (though it claimed to be), mostly random interviews and anecdotes that only sometimes connected to one another.
