Ambitious, entertaining, and often insightful ... [its] give-and-take makes the book accessible, even inviting, for bears and non-bears alike --Kevin Riordan, Philadelphia Gay News
I wasn't expecting Bears on Bears to touch me on such a deep level... My personal connection to bears never occurred to me until I read this book. In fact, I think it should be required reading for anyone interested in gender studies because it's about bears, and then it is about so much more than bears. --Tristan Taormino, Village Voice
