Reading project, week ending 29 Dec 2019

What have I read this week?

Inferior: The True Power of Women and the Science that Shows It by Angela Saini

This is a nonfiction book about the way in which science has been used to demonstrate that women are inferior to men and whether that’s true (spoiler alert: it’s not true). I liked this book; it’s written in an accessible and easy to follow style and I found the topic very interesting.

Why The West Rules – For Now: The Patterns of History and what they reveal about the Future by Ian Morris

This is a nonfiction book about the history of humanity and why the West gained global power. I found it interesting, although I’m not totally convinced by Morris’s conclusions.
