Dan Abrams, Author Of “Man Down,” On The Top Women In 7 Industries

In his new book “Man Down,” legal analyst and author Dan Abrams makes a bold claim: women are better than men at just about everything. We wanted to know: could he be more specific He could. Abrams singled out seven female stars the men will never catch.

Dan is/was one of our favorite legal analysts his new book is here “Man Down: Proof Beyond a Reasonable Doubt That Women Are Better Cops, Drivers, Gamblers, Spies, World Leaders, Beer Tasters, Hedge Fund Managers, and Just About Everything Else [Hardcover]”… He’s right, we hope one day to help more men get in to engineering 🙂

  1. Well, you’ve gotten me hooked on engineering, and I’m a guy, so I think you are successful on that last goal. All kidding aside I loved seeing your face on wired! So awesome on so many levels. 🙂 A belated Congratulations from Madison, WI.

  2. I wish it didn’t have to be a contest, with someone being better than someone else. I think both sexes can be excellent engineers, and I think that good engineers tend to respect the skills and ignore the genome. This is not to disrespect the uphill battle that I know women have had in fields traditionally dominated by men. I just don’t like someone to say that one sex is better than another, because it just deepens that divide. I don’t see why we can’t appreciate everyone’s strengths and contributions to the community.

    I’ve noticed that it does seem to be the female engineers who are taking technology and making it relevant and interesting to everyday lives. Jeri and Limor are the two most prominent examples (in my mind) of engineers who make technology approachable to everyone. I think this is a very welcome addition to engineering, and one that the this country definitely needs.
