Finger Book by John T. Manning
Book DescriptionThis book is about a simple measurement of the human hand: the 'finger ratio', or the length of the ring finger relative to the index finger. John Manning uses a tiny difference between the sexes - that men tend to have a greater finger ratio than women - to examine a dizzying group of questions about human behaviour, from sexuality, to musical ability, to predisposition to disease. Controversial, but unfailingly clear and balanced, John Manning's cutting-edge research poses many fruitful questions about what makes us as we are.

This book is about the 'finger ratio', or the length of the ring finger relative to the index finger. It uses this to examine a group of questions about human behaviour, from sexuality, to musical ability, to disease.
