This is so informative; highly recommend for people who do not know anything about asexuality. Decker addresses what asexuality is, other orientations on the spectrum, and common misconceptions. She also provides resources for people who think they may be asexual. There are personal anecdotes mixed in as well, so that the reader isn't only hearing about asexuality from one person (the author's) perspective.

The biggest flaw is how repetitive the writing is, to the point where Decker uses the same examples multiple times throughout the book. This makes it easy to understand what she's writing, but it also makes the reader want to skim. Personally, I thought that section 3 was entirely redundant. Every point made is presented somewhere else in the book with almost the same amount of detail. I would suggest skipping that section unless one of the subheadings feels particularly pertinent to you.
