Reviews

Plenty of people still doubt that bisexuality really exists, and others assume that bisexuals are closeted gays, curious heterosexuals, or maladjusted people who can't decide what they want. No one can hold on to these outmoded stereotypes after reading Ritch C. Savin-Williams' powerful book. By letting the voices of so many diverse individuals speak their own truths, in all of their individuality and complexity, he provides one of the clearest and most compelling portraits available of the phenomenon of plural attractions. Savin-Williams brings us right inside their experiences, and allows us to share his empathy, his curiosity, his admiration for their strength and courage, and his celebration of their dazzling diversity.--Lisa M. Diamond, author of Sexual Fluidity: Understanding Women's Love and Desire
Bi is the book that we have all been waiting for. It reveals the inside story of the thoughts and feelings of Generation Z with respect to their identities, sexualities, genders, and relationships. Ritch Savin-Williams explains in the lucid and passionate language of adolescents and young adults why they want to disrupt the binaries of their parents' generation and create their own ways of understanding themselves and each other. I learned a tremendous amount about adolescence and about humans, especially how they and we are driven by our desires to be seen, heard, taken seriously, and loved. Bi will change how you think and feel. Read it!--Niobe Way, author of Deep Secrets: Boys' Friendships and the Crisis of Connection
Ritch C. Savin-Williams shows all of the ways bisexuality has been misunderstood. Through the stories and voices of people who themselves experience their sexuality in this way, he shows that bisexuality is real, measurable, and valuable to understand.--Mary Robertson, author of Growing Up Queer: Kids and the Remaking of LGBTQ Identity
