A Tall Story

  • Roy A. Carr-Hill

Our demonstration that, in purely empirical terms, the woman’s own height is a consistent — although relatively weak — discriminator could be taken as a recommendation that the erstwhile investigator should sally forth with her tape measure. The implications of that possible advice are considered in more detail in the concluding chapter. Here, standing back from ourselves, we are concerned with the rather bizarre interest evidenced in the previous two chapters with characteristics of the women themselves.
