Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Brown and Rounsley's solidly based introduction to many aspects of living as a transsexual provides general information about the dilemma of feeling trapped in the wrong physical gender, about such a person's development, and about locating a gender therapist. Brown and Rounsley also detail the process of transition between genders, starting with legal and identity changes and proceeding to changing outward modes of self-presentation (they include sample "coming-out" letters to employers, coworkers, friends, and family members) and dealing with bathroom issues, hormone treatments, surgical options, and guidelines for finding social support. First-person accounts from transsexuals augment general readability and put human faces on the issues discussed. Whitney Scott

Review

"Thorough and comprehensive. This is a serious and important book. If you know a transsexual, care about a transsexual or are interested in understanding transsexuality, then True Selves should be on your reading list."

"Provides a useful introduction to the transsexual phenomenon for the practicing psychiatrist who may be unfamiliar with this particular sexual minority." (Wynelle Snow, M.D., Association of Gay and Lesbian Psychiatrists)

"A useful volume to have as a reference for those trying to gain some understanding of being transexxual [or] for those desiring to understand this in a friAnd or family member." (Wynelle Snow, M.D., Association of Gay and Lesbian Psychiatrists)
