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.
