6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By "ferrboyd" on June 6, 2000
Format: Paperback
Mr. Mallon once again shows his special ability to look into the souls of others and grasp their experience. Further, he includes the thoughts and perspectives of articulate trangendered people who have a singular ability to help us understand. I have been working to educate myself to better serve my transgendered clients. This publication helped me immensely in my journey towards that goal.
