Super excited about this book. Halfway through the introduction and it is awesome so far. Ties in with my work on transgender economics.

Finished it and it was really great! I have to admit, it was scary reading about the male privilege that many trans men accept without question. I hope I can be strong enough to stand up to gender inequality in the workforce.

I recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in trans issues or income inequality.

This book was alright, it really didn't read like a regular non-fiction book though--more like the author's thesis that was published, academic and dry. At times it was hard to read, but informative if you could get past the long sentences full of gender studies jargon. At best, good reading for someone whose college major is Gender & Women's Studies, but not so much if you're not fully immersed in the terms and syntax of the field.

It was about what I expected- someone's dissertation work adapted slightly for book form. That's not necessarily a bad thing, and wasn't in this case. The writing was solid and accessible, but not dumbed-down. This wasn't an earth-shattering, paradigm-shifting book, but I enjoyed it.

The explanation in the introduction, for the terminology used in the book, alone justifies reading it.
This would be a fantastic introduction to the transmale community for journalists, educators and other people who have peripheral contact with the LGBT community.
