We bisexuals have so many books on theory, biphobia, bi representation, and tons of other much-need, but not necessarily fun, topics. This is the bi humor book I've always wanted to read.
Like every gay guy, I've had my share of relatioships with supposedly straight or bi guys who I always think are going to leave me for a girl, and they often do. Well, I wish I had that funny contract at the back of the book about what to fill out for my partners. I love it. Like the section that limits your partner's "other partner" to leaving one foot on the floor at all times, or not leaving a toothbrush over at the house.
I'm most fascinated about the celebs they have talking to them, and also the scientific research, good and bad about bi people. I didn't knw there was so much about it, and so much confusion. I love the animals section, where everything from snails to whales show incidents of going both ways.
Even if you're not promiscuous, or if you're straight, or gay, of if you've ever wondered or wandered the other way, you'll find something enjoyable in this. It's a perfect bathroom book, to pick up and read while sitting there. I've bought three copies for guys who wll at first get offended, but I've marked the pages they should read. Thanks Nicole and Michael for a good laugh.
Some of the questions for the quizzes were too broad, since some of us have never been in situations they pertain too.
I did think that they focused more on the sex issues then the mind/soul/community issues, but it was informative nonetheless.
However, I had great fun reading the book and could tell that the authors worked hard to acheive a good balance of sobriety and humor to make it entertaining instead of sterile.
I am actually looking forward to another book by the authors, if they decide to make one!
I was hoping to find an informative and cleverly written book, and this really wasn't it. Written like an abominable combination of cheap tabloids and a 90s teen magazine with an LGBT subject line, this book has pages and pages of useless silly quizzes and 32+ pages of paragraph-biographies concerning celebrities/historical figures most of whom are probably not bisexual. So if you're worried you won't be able to finish the book, don't worry - you can skip those bits.
The authors write like intelligent, well-meaning people who have only ever worked for buzzfeed, college humor at best. I haven't read anything else by these authors, and this makes me curious how their other work reads. The most interesting bits were where they spoke up about their personal experiences, but almost everything else is written poorly, with incredible bias, or about something entirely useless.
Still, if you're already familiar with LGBT/bisexual specific material, and think you can stomach the frustrating writing style and bias, go for it. It gave me a few laughs. Worth the $3 kindle price. Not sure I'd be willing to fork out any more than that.
Great book though. Highly recommend.
