“Is there Anything good about Men?” by Roy F. Baumeister

I read this yesterday and found it interesting (probably at least partially because it validates my opinion that men, on average, are neither more exceptionally gifted or stunted than women, but the distribution is much wider).  I don’t know that I would agree with every conclusion, but the article is a fairly thorough argument that delves into the social evolution of patriarchy.  I’d recommend it.
