Strangers at the Gates Again: Asian American Immigration After 1965 (The Asian American Experience) Library Binding – January 1, 1995
From School Library Journal
Grade 6 Up?The past 30 years of Asian immigration to America are covered in this adaptation of Takaki's adult title, Strangers from a Different Shore (Viking, 1990). In clear and precise language, the author describes the experiences of immigrants from many Asian countries, as well as how they differed from those of people who were "first wave" immigrants. There is sometimes a sameness to the struggles depicted (for example, professional men and women from Korea and from the Philippines left their native lands because they could not find jobs in their fields; however, in the U.S. many worked at jobs far below their levels of capability and education). This repetition (although accurate), some broadly generalized statements in the introduction, the less than compelling black-and-white photographs, and the sense that the book was once part of a more complete historical record keep it from being an absorbing account. On the other hand, it will be in demand for reports, and will serve well for that purpose.?Carla Kozak, San Francisco Public Library

The emotion that was there was fabulous, it was funny, interesting & sad but most of all, for me it was heart warming.
The book gives a very good account of a day to day life of a female to male transsexual, the ups and downs.
The best thing i found was that Paul was really honest and didn't hide the not so good parts of being an FTM.
I would say that the only thing missing from this book was some finer detail....How did he choose the name Paul? Who did he first go to in a medical capacity for help? Were they any good? How long from that point did it take to start testosterone?
I think in a book of this nature the whole point is to try to help others in that situation, which it does, however as i have detailed, i don't think there was enough info about the lead up to starting testosterone.
Paul Hewitts, A Self Made Man gave me the courage to believe that it was time that the little boy that had been inside me for 28 years should come out and breathe for the first time.
So, come on Paul, whats been happening since then? It's time for another!!!!
