Men and women have had their histories. This is the history book for the rest of us.--Kate Bornstein, author of Gender Outlaw
"[Transgender Warriors] leaves us with a sense that a transgendered concept of what it is to be fully human and psychologically whole is both valid and nothing new. A brief review cannot do justice to this amazing resource, not only for our communities, but for the world."--Patricia Roth Schwartz, Lambda Book Report
"[Transgender Warriors] does far more than document the history of transgenders. It delves into the transgender experience, inviting the reader to consider a spectrum of gender possibilities." --Linda Gebroe, San Francisco Chronicle Book Review
"No book since Toni Morrison's Beloved gives so much and holds itself so well. History becomes art, the political becomes transformative, the personal becomes universal." --Craig Hickman, Gay Community News
"The challenge Feinberg sets forth-a complex, multisided one-is to take up the banner of feminism and extend it, stretch it, until it has room for all women."--Rosemarie C. Sultan, Sojourner
"A ground-breaking gift to both the transgender community and the world at large."--Rachel Reed, Synapse
"A well-written, well-researched compendium of transgender history."--Harriet L. Schwartz, Philadelphia Gay News
"Nobody will remain unaffected by this book." --Heather Findlay, Girlfriends

Accessible to non-historians and an entertaining read. It's not written like a 'history book' but it provides a heck of a lot of information and has a wonderfully useful glossary/ directory in the back.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to know a little more about LGBT history (understandably this focuses on trans history specifically and how it meshes with LGBT) and anyone who is part of the family.
My only complaint was the exceptionally small print accompanying the photos;
perhaps I need new glasses?
I think parents, relatives, friends of Trans people might see it as a real wake-up call. People who are prejudiced against them are unlikely to read it.
