However, for most transwomen who have gained knowledge and have a plan ( path) to trasitioning, it is too basic.
The author provides her viewpoint of transitoning which is not shared by all in the community while balancing it with the presentation that we all prioritizing diufferent things at different times.
For all of us though, it does provide a excellent boost to the confidence of anyone who is trans and helps with self esteeem and with our all important self image.
In general I think she does a good job of covering, if briefly, all the important topics related to male-to-female transitioning. I do think that at $19 the book is somewhat overpriced given that it is only 198 pages. I also think the book could have been strengthened by adding a bibliography or Recommended Books & Videos appendix.
I also would have appreciated more information about the GRS (or SRS) surgery and its aftermath, particularly some information about the percentage of transwomen who end up non-orgasmic afterward. While Seeley did show the down side of having the surgery, she did not really indicate any corresponding down side to *not* having the surgery, and this reader would have appreciated more than 2-3 pages on this important topic.

I came away from the book thinking that every male who decides to integrate the feminine into his life in some way undergoes a 'transition', whether they be a part-time cross dresser 'coming out' of the closet socially or a transsexual undergoing SRS. For some folks that transition may be simply making internal adjustments to the way they relate to people, for other folks that transition may also require making external adjustments (in varying degrees) to the way they present themselves to the world.
