Summary: Written for general audiences, this unprecedented book comprehensively answers many questions about being transgender with current experiential and scientific information, including the evidence for a biological transgender predisposition. Offers information derived from the author's review of more than 3,000 source articles and books across 22 scientific disciplines across more than 11 years-a repository of information that is likely the most comprehensive on transgender science. Represents the first book written for general audiences from the perspective of a scientist, not a clinician or advocate. Identifies the forms of rejection of transgender people sanctioned by culture and provides suggestions for dealing with them. Discusses the future of transgender people as well as that of the binary gender system in Western culture.
