Kudos to Shankar Vedantam!

HiddenBrainWebBest book of the year?

THE HIDDEN BRAIN by Shankar Vedantam.

Chapter 5 (The Invisible Current: Gender, Privilege & the Hidden Brain) begins with the words: “Lilly Ledbetter’s life followed a clockwork routine…”

It’s just like Kathryn Bigelow told Leslie Stahl on 60 MINUTES one week before becoming the first woman to win an Oscar for Best Director:

“There’s really no difference between what I do and what a male filmmaker might do… On the other hand, I think the journey for women, no matter what venue it is… it’s a long journey.”


And the ending of Vedantam’s chapter had me crying real tears.

Kudos to a guy who really, really gets it!
