Lefties: The Origins and Consequences of Being Left-Handed by Jack Fincher


The author is trying to figure out, scientifically mainly, if people are destined from birth to be right-handed or left-handed. He quotes scientists who have studied plants and micro-organisms who cannot determine if the subjects are right-handed, left-handed, or ambidextrous.


I quit half-way through because the author just seemed to be whining to me. And when the author wasn’t whining, he quoted so much scientific jargon that I felt like I was in Physics class. I gave up. Maybe someone else will have better luck.
