"Tomorrow belongs to women," notes celebrated anthropologist Helen Fisher. In this explosive new book she illustrates this enticing assertion. Drawing on original research, Fisher reveals how women and their natural talents are changing the world, making them ideal leaders and successful shapers of business and society today. Looking back to prehistoric times, Fisher shows how the special structure of the female brain enables women to do "web thinking" (or "synthesis thinking") as compared to men's more linear ("step") thinking. With lively anecdotes and fascinating stories, Fisher reveals how women's special talents-superior verbal abilities, people savvy, acute senses, healing techniques, and more-are geared to success in today's worlds of medicine, education, communications, law, philanthropy, and government. 400 pp.
