"For Chris Edwards, the decision to transition from female to male was black and white. The question was, did he have the balls to do it? Did he have the balls to come out at a company board meeting made up of white, middle-aged executives? To endure 28 painful and extensive surgeries? Show up at his 10-year high school reunion? Date a member of the Nashville Bikini Team? The answer is yes, yes he did--and with great success. Well, except for the bikini model part ... At a time when the term "transgender" didn't really exist, and with support from family, friends, and a great therapist, Chris summoned up the courage to become the man he always knew he was meant to be. He used what he learned working in advertising along with his ever-present sense of humor to rebrand himself and orchestrate what was quite possibly the most widely accepted and embraced gender transition of its kind"--Publisher's web site.… (lisätietoja)

Fascinating book. I'm so glad that Chris Edwards wrote this book. I found it interesting that as I was reading I always felt like it was written by a man. It was, of course, but I was sometimes startled to read his reaction to his female body because I was hearing a man speaking. A courageous book. An eyeopener for those of us lucky enough to be born into the right bodies. Hopefully an inspiration to those not so fortunate. I'm glad that Chris was very clear that he was exceptionally lucky to have the funds and the support to get all the surgery he needed. I do wish that there were photos. Mr Edwards explained why he had included no before pictures, but I would have liked them anyway. I did have to look online to find current pictures of him. He is a very attractive man. I wish him well. I'm grateful to have received an advance copy from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. ( )

Chris Edwards has done something extraordinary. He has decided to share his life experience as a transgender person and in so doing, has given people an "ordinary", guy-next-door to help understand this puzzling realm. As he himself states, parents coping with an announcement from their child can take little solace from celebrity coverage of a life in transition. His is a story of familial love and support and a unique approach to "rebranding" himself. As an advertising executive, he chose to approach his transition as he would have approached any major advertising campaign....figuring out the new branding, gathering vocal support, spreading the word, etc. Edwards tells his story with tenderness and humor. He and his family had to approach this at a time when there weren't support groups, books, television shows, and movies covering the subject. Edwards had to forge his own path and did so with courage and love for those who stood by him. Highly recommended. ( )
