For about fifty centuries about ninety percent of the worlds popuation has been right-handed. Throughout history the left hand and arm has been regarded as inferior in power, dexterity and dignity.The book discusses the causes of left-handedness and the penalities (and sometimes) benefits of spending ones life with a dominant left hand.
