WOMAN explores the essence of what it means to be female. In mapping the inner woman – from organs to orgasms – Natalie Angier presents an extraordinary new vision of the female body as an evolutionary masterpiece.

‘Anyone living in or near a female body should read this book’ – Gloria Steinem
‘Women have long been regarded as slaves to biology and evolution, prisoners in a hormonal swamp.

But now, some of the sacred tenets of evolutionary psychology…have come under fresh challenge. As the century turns, it could be Goodbye women’s lib; hello female liberation!… WOMAN is a delicious cocktail of estrogen and amphetamine designed to pump up the ovaries as well as the cerebral cortex’ – Barbara Ehrenreich, TIME MAGAZINE

‘Drawing on science, literature and history, Angier provides valuable insight into the power of hormones, breast milk and the all-important clitoris. A must for every woman’s bookshelf’ – WOMAN’S JOURNAL
