Must have for friends and families of transgender,

This review is from: Transgender Explained For Those Who Are Not (Paperback)
I highly recommend Joanne Herman's new book, "Transgender Explained - For Those Who Are Not." It is the equivalent to sitting down with your friend or neighbor for coffee and discussing the topic of transgender comfortably with them. Easy reading yet thorough, this inexpensive little book covers most of the major, immediate questions in the Primer section, then adds some thoughts about more advanced topics in the segment named - appropriately - "Advanced Topics."
For the parent of a transgender child - of any age - one of the most difficult aspects of learning their child is transgender is coming out to their families, coworkers, fellow parishones, and friends. Ms. Herman's book will be a great asset to these parents, as well as an excellent introduction to the subject for those who read it. If you are such a parent, buy several copies to hand out to your questioing friends.
