Publisher's Summary

Researcher and author Michelle Serena tackles the controversial subject of transgenderism and gender dysphoria in her new audiobook, Gender Dysphoria. With all the recent information in the news on transgender people, this book comes at the right time. I Am Cait, the new show about the life of Caitlyn Jenner as she transitions into her new world separate from Bruce Jenner is a startling reminder that this dysphoria is real and that individuals who are going through this have options - and they can have bright lives in front of them when they find self-acceptance and a community of supportive friends.
Gender Dysphoria is not a comprehensive book nor a substitution for medical advice. It is a guide for family and friends who are curious about the subject and need to get a handle on what's going on with a loved one who is transgender. It's also a helpful book for school-aged people who may have to report on transgender studies or better understand their fellow students. The book helps the listener determine what transgenderism is, the possible biological reasons for it, possible treatments, and the various attributes of it.
Listeners will find useful information on the topic and hopefully receive the type of understanding that will enable the transgender people in their lives to have a point of departure for positive discussion. The book discusses male-to-female and female-to-male transitions and the hormonal and surgical options that many of them will undertake. It also goes into the risks associated with the various treatment options and for this reason is also a good resource for family members who have been asked to provide emotional support.

a good start

this book is basic, simple and factual. it is positive and a great book for anyone at any level of understanding and experience. there is so much more to delve into on this subject, but I think the author does a great job out outlining the basic information!

Eek. A google article would have more impact.

I’m rarely this harsh and I’m sorry to those who participated in the development of this but readers need to know:

1) this is not a book. It’s a $2 white paper that has almost no information in it other than what a sex change is and recites a list of a few symptoms in 30 seconds. You’ll literally get more information from an article on google.
2) The audible sounded like Siri reading a rehearsed funeral mantra. Incredibly monotone and dull.
3) I didn’t learn a single thing in this book. It says things (in robot voice) like “it will be very hard for some people. Many people are happy with a sex change. The end.”

Conclusion: aside from clearly attempting to make some cash by putting this on amazon, i don’t understand what the goal was here at all. It saddens me because people really need an audible for gender confusion and this was the only one i could find, but still looking for an actual useful source of material to help someone close to me. Advice: don’t waste your time. Give credit to those who actually put effort into devising an in depth source of helpful material with truly altruistic intentions.

Not satisfying

The research in the book is incomplete.
Everything feels very basic.
The wording is unfortunate.
The research is outdated.
Too many things are not completely accurate.
This book is ok to read and consult IN ADDITION to other sources.
