The purpose of this book is to tell you what you need to know about being transgender. Whether you are transgender, think you are transgender, or just want to know more about transgender people, this book will provide the needed information. The information comes from two sources: (1) analysis of over 3,000 scientific articles and (2) transgender experience, both from me and from what other transgender people have said. My experience includes being a transgender person in the closet for 50 years, starting at age 5. I then started gradually coming out, and after 9 years, I have completed transsexual transition. I cannot say that my experience was representative of all transgender people, so I will include quotes indicating the experience of others.
