His Brain, Her Brain
While some gender differences are evident on the first day of a baby’s life, most start out small but then become amplified by our gender-obsessed culture. In this ebook, we take a closer look at gender and the brain. By adulthood, males and females not only have nonidentical brain architectures but also divergent ways of speaking, parenting and responding to both tragedy and comedy. A better understanding of the real—and imagined—differences between "his" brain and "her" brain can help us overcome cultural biases, improve communication and strengthen relationships.

Martin Gardner
Martin Gardner's “Mathematical Games” column ran for 26 years. In this anthology, we strove to create a new look at this wealth of material. Some of these columns are less well known than, say, his writings about flexagons, but they are no less fun. In true Gardner fashion, they leap from magic and games—as well as art, music, and literature—to flashes of deep mathematical insight.
