Written by a social worker, popular educator, and member of the transgender community, this resource combines a portrait of transgenderism with a history of transgender life and its unique experiences of discrimination. Chapters introduce transgenderism and its psychological, physical, and social processes; describe the coming out process and its effect on family and friends; discuss the relationship between sexual orientation and gender; and explore the differences between transsexualism and lesser-known types of transgenderism. Each chapter explains how transgender individuals handle their gender identity, how others view it within the context of non-trangender society, and how the transitioning of genders is made possible. Featuring men who become women, women who become men, and those who live in between and beyond traditional classifications, this book is written for students, professionals, friends, and family members.--Cover

I would love to be able to recommend this book. The topics it covers need to be addressed. Unfortunately, it is full of veiled and overtly misogynist sentiments. The cartoons are especially unpleasant.

I have read this book in my continung study and research in this field. I have over a decade in research and development in this field, plus "hands on" and "OJT" in this field as well, seeming how all of my MTF (Male To Female) mates have been "Transexual". I am currently married to the love of my life who is a MTF Transexual, (who btw doesn't like the term "Transexual" and prefers the term "Shemale"), She read this book and has notifed me with her expert opinion in this Book as "Horrible and uneducated retoric". I would not share this comment if i didn't feel so strongly about this "misinformation". hank you and have a wonderful day. :)
