In The Beauty of the Difference, Martine Delfos describes the differences and similarities between men and women. She shows how these differences and similarities intertwine like cogwheels. She does not limit herself to listing the differences and similarities, but she describes how male and female are interrelated, and how they have meaning with and for each other, from biological, evolutionary and social elements.
