Women live longer than men, they have better immune systems, higher intelligence, greater endurance, and even see in a wider range of colors. They are simply more capable than men at every stage of life. Why is this? And why are we taught the opposite? From his experiences treating premature babies, recruiting the elderly for neurogenetic studies, and tending to HIV-positive orphans in Thailand, physician and geneticist Sharon Moalem reveals how the answers lie in women's superior genes. He also considers the prevailing male-centric, one-size-fits-all model of medical studies and calls for a radical revision—one that no longer views women through the lens of men.
