If you or someone else would like a harmless, cheap, enlightening, insightful, serious, and even entertaining read, then this is your next book.
Candid stories tell the stories in an honest and transparent fashion in every chapter and this book by far captures the spirit of what asexuality actually is better than any other book on the subject.
One, the author has gone and done the "interviews" for you, saving you the work of personally hunting down this rare breed. "Interviews" - because this book is really just a compilation of responses to a fixed questionnaire, with no follow-up questions. Thankfully, most of the responses are far better written than the introduction, which was painful to read.
Two, the author acknowledges in the introduction the existence of infighting and gatekeeping within the asexual community, and encourages the reader to pay these no mind. This is a message that, I think, is particularly important to readers just discovering that a world exists outside the heterosexual, heteroromantic boxes drawn around us by society.
And for older aces, or even those just curious about asexuality- taken as a collection of experiences, it's interesting to discover the common ground and massive variations across all the entries. For some it's an intrinsic part of their personality and for others it's a mundane fact they barely give a thought to.
If it had been around when I was younger it would have provided a certain amount of relief to come across this book and I hope it will do that for others now it's here.
