    Each of us enters the workplace not only as a human being, but as a woman or man, Leadership and the Sexes links the actual science of male/female brain differences to every aspect of business. Written by the New York Times best-selling author and gender expert Michael Gurian and acclaimed workplace gender consultant Barbara Annis, this groundbreaking audio weaves brain science and gender studies with real life examples from business leaders to provide a new vision of gender diversity.

    Overall

    The narration style did not fit the material, for me, and made it hard to listen to. The pace was very slow. Either the narrator, or the prose, or both, gave the book a patronizing tone.

    The material was very repetitive. The book is organized as a workshop for executives and their management teams, which was not clear from the description. Not the best format for an audiobook. Frequent references to the authors' workshops and other books made it feel a bit like an ad, too.

    Lastly, the book was not as gender balanced as I hoped/expected. Though it pays lip service to balanced advice, I found it to be much more about how men can understand/accomodate/benefit from women's "brain differences" than vice versa. Perhaps this is understandable but, I would have preferred a better balance. (And I'm coming at this from the female side of the equation).
