"Overall the first section of the book is probably of most use to clinicians in the field of transgender care and to individuals seeking guidance in their own care. ...the second section cover a wide variety of topics: ethics, legal rights, support systems, health insurance, facial surgery, commentaries on the recommended guidelines, transgender studies, and hormones."
-NWSA Journal "This wonderful a comprehensive resource."
-Archives of Sexual Behavior "Professionals who work with individuals with gender identity issues and those with gender issues themselves have long needed a comprehensive guide to treatment. Finally, it is here. Gianna Israel and Donald Tarver have done a wonderful job of putting resource material from many fields into one easy to use reference book. Transgender Care is without a doubt a breakthrough work, as it addresses issues of cultural diversity, sexual orientation, and lifestyle that have been previously overlooked or ignored in the clinical literature. The supporting essays provide practical information about employment and insurance and confront the ethical difficulties of professionals who serve as gatekeepers to those who desire treatment. The authors have done a service to caregivers and transfolk alike with this monumental work."
-Dallas Denney, M.A., Licensed Psychological Examiner, Executive Director, American Education Gender Information Service, Inc. "The title tells pretty much what this groundbreaking anthology offers: a comprehensive distillation of personal experiences and professional wisdom."
