I have very little “real” experience with transgendered people and the issues that surround them. I fully admit that my eyes were opened by watching the documentary film about the transformation of Chastity Bono to Chaz Bono. I read his book as well. In an effort to go deeper and learn more, I’ve started to read some other books and give my reviews. I’ll list those books on this page as I read them. At the bottom of the page is a link to more highly rated transgender related books.
