Becoming a Visible Man is one of the better books currently available explaining the politics of transsexual change from an insider's view. Green is quite well-known in the field and a sought-after speaker. His own life is used mainly as example for the issues he raises, yet is captured intensely with his struggles throughout. Many transsexual people write about the struggle to disappear into their new gender status role vs. the need to speak out for themselves and others. Green manages to both investigate this conundrum and find his own answers. Fascinating social history of a civil rights movement that is gaining momentum.
