Product Description

The most current (2017) and complete study of transgenderism. This book is highly recommended by a transgender icon and modern transgender pioneer, Dr. Renee Richards. She wrote, "Dear Joanne, I read Transgender Complete and was impressed with how comprehensive and erudite a discussion it was of all things 'transgender'. Much has happened since my days of involvement . . . . especially interesting for me [was]...all the new research and social advances. Congratulations." - Dr. Renee Richards
Others' comments: This is an important contribution to the literature. / A therapist wrote this has helped her with her practice's specialty. Please read reviews below.
Transgender Complete is an important and complete resource for transgender people who are seeking more information about themselves; those who know a transgender person and wish to understand them; and students and professionals in the fields of psychotherapy and medicine who want to know more about the thoughts and lives of transgender people.

This book includes every aspect of transgenderism from children to seniors and from immigration to sports; original research; and over 180 comments from different transgender women and men that express their feelings regarding various issues. It also includes: the transgender relationship to gay/lesbian, bisexual, and asexual people;

TRANSGENDER WOMEN AND MEN can better understand themselves; learn their gender origins; how to maintain better relations with their loved ones, friends, and employers; the methods to avoid the perils of coming out; and much more.

THOSE WHO LOVE or KNOW A TRANSGENDER PERSON will learn the cause of transgenderism, why it is kept a secret, their biological need to express their inner gender, and suggestions to help maintain loving relationships.

EMPLOYERS will learn why transgender employees are ideal employees and how simple and effortless it is to integrate (or re-integrate) them into any organization.

STUDENTS AND PROFESSIONALS IN EDUCATION, PSYCHOTHERAPY, AND MEDICINE will gain a keen insight into the thoughts, lives, difficulties, and needs of transgender men and women.

Joanne Borden, author and Winner of the Best Storyteller award in 2012 at NYC’s Fresh Fruit Festival, based this book on 4 years of full-time research. The writing style, scattering of humor, and transgender people's comments make this book an easy read.

Some unsolicited comments sent via email are:

“The first thing I noticed is the great amount of research and facts and how
clearly they are presented. The next thing was how it answered so many
questions that have puzzled me all my life. I now understand myself and
feel better knowing I am not a freak.”

“This is an amazing book. I realize my daughter is not sick but needs my
help facing the world full of people who didn’t read this book. I still can't believe
it took a book for me to understand my own child.”

"I want you to know that I have been enjoying reading your book. I appreciate all the work you put into it . . .It's obvious all the research you've done on the book, it's informative, and entertaining."

"You cannot imagine how I am enjoying your book. I am about to finish it but I am sure I am going to read it again several times. I am pretty convinced that it has helped [me] like nothing before."

"I have started reading your book and . . . I am so impressed with the amount of research you have done with your book. It has [already] answered some of my questions regarding my gender origins."

"[I] am very impressed by the amount of time you must have spent in research. This is some piece of work, . . . . [and] it appears to be easy reading for a very complex subject."

"I just finished reading your book and think it is the best I've ever read regarding the transgender issues. It should be a must read for everyone!"
