About the Book


The questions, discussion topics, and author biography that follow are intended to enhance your group's reading of Woman: An Intimate Geography. In this extraordinarily wide-ranging exploration, Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times science writer Natalie Angier lifts the veil of secrecy from that most enigmatic of evolutionary masterpieces, the female body, exploring the essence of what it means to be a woman. Witty, irreverent, and sharply intelligent, Angier presents a powerful case against scientists who have given Darwinian evolutionary theories new life, and offers instead a thoroughly liberating and enlightening reading of the complexities of the brain, biology, and the female body.
