In all human societies the right is dominant. For about fifty centuries about ninety percent of the world''s 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. It looks at the dominance of the right in religion, politics and superstition. Half of the book deals with some 800 of the most famous and infamous left handers throughout history. It includes many lesser known facts and fallacies about a very important minority who have achieved much in spite of the sinister interpretation that has sometimes been placed on the fact that they favor their left hand
