"Kudos to Jackson Wright Shultz for abandoning a pedantic, academic
dissertation, and instead compiling an oral history. This is a book
about what it means to be transgender in its most perfect form:
with a diverse cast and many different voices all straight from the
source."-- "The Hollins Critic"
"This is the book that we've been waiting for. . . . This deeply human title deserves a broad general and academic audience."-- "Library Journal"
Made up almost exclusively of the words of 34 informants, the six chapters of Shultz's eye-opening survey constitute not so much an oral history as a state-of-society report, highly critical but hardly despondent, on how America is treating those who have transitioned from one sex and/or gender to the other.-- "Booklist"
Shultz's collection of first-person voices offers a fascinating and eye-opening view of transgender individuals and communities that will aid healthcare and education professionals, anyone with questions about gender and the general public. The uplifting message is that these are simply people, as sympathetic, interesting and varied as any other.-- "Shelf Awareness"
