This is an overly simplistic and potentially harmful book about a very complex subject. Although I dont think the author intended it, the whole mirroring concept comes across as if Transgender people have "learned" behaviors that have caused them to be transgender. If the purpose of discussing "mirroring" is to try to explain how one could become dysphoric, the intention is not clear and could be easily misconstrued and therefore not helpful in bringing to light how transgender people are simply born this way.

This book uses incorrect terminology and references transgender people as "transgenders" which is derogatory and it would be like referring to people who identify gay as "the gays" which I can't see anyone doing. This, to me, shows that the author does not respect those who identify as transgender or at the very least is outdated in their views and information.
I was hoping to listen to this book as a way to find a good recourse for those finding their own gender identity or those who wish to help educate people close to them. Sadly I feel that this would only encourage more ignorance around what it means to be transgender and would only cause more hurt to an already oppressed community.
