Ordered them both. Does it matter which I read first? WDYR?

Delusions of Gender.
Because it is about what people are like inside (ie neuroscience), which is a good starting point, then go to Wifework and read about how they behave in society.

Delusions of Gender is excellent. Well-researched, lucid, but also very funny - wry and skeweringly witty at times. Cordelia Fine is my latest feminista girlcrush.

I haven't read Wifework but my friend said it made her so cross that it put her marriage in danger (or her husband, can't remember which).
