Reviews

"Callahan does a good job of exploring intersex individuals, who are neither male nor female, and argues that they need to be accepted for what they are and not viewed as defective." --Publishers Weekly


"Immunologist Callahan takes a fascinating look at the biology and human experience of intersexuality, a state in between male and female." --Discover Magazine


"Callahan's writing style is both accessible and engaging; it reads more like creative non-fiction, a la Malcolm Gladwell." --Ms. Magazine


"This is a fascinating, easily understandable journey into why we are born male or female and examines our age-old obsession with sex." --Fort Collins Coloradoan


"There are lots of interesting nuggets here--for example, Callahan's description of biological sex as a spectrum, not a binary system." --Double X


"The book is really beautifully written, highly accessible, and visionary in its own right." --Feministing


"This book takes readers through an alphabet of gender and gender variations. Callahan shows readers that rather than either/or scenarios, there have always been variations; his book shatters our society's take on pink and blue." --Advocate.com
