A transsexual autobiography which includes some interesting stuff about the development of trans and FTM community. Green's transition started in the time when a "successful" transition involved never desiring to contract other trans people once transition was completed. It includes all the usual stuff about childhood and motivations around transition, but I thought the most interesting was towards the end where he talks about his involvement in the nascent "men's movement" and his creation of a role for himself as an out trans man.
