The Better Half

Review From User :

I received an advance copy to review and I have to say that as a woman, I was actually surprised at the number of things I learned from this book that I was never taught in school. I really hadn't understood that women benefit from having two X chromosomes over their whole lives, strengthening their immune systems and even helping them fight some kinds of cancer more effectively than males. I loved how the author explained that two X chromosomes gives females more genetic 'options' to choose from, which is why overall women don't have as many X-linked conditions as males like color-blindness: mind-blowing! I also totally didn't know how many more problems men have in general during brain development because they only have one X chromosome. I feel like this book gave me an overall understanding for how females are different.
