|As Nature Made Him, by John Colapinto,
read by Howard McGillin. The story of David Reimer who's botched circumcision
as a baby resulted in him living the first 14 years of his life as a girl.
Yet at age 14, he makes the decision to live life as a male. David's early
life was used as the example that gender identity was based on physical biology/nurture,
whereas Reimer's decision to reject Dr John Money's insistence that he "conveniently"
become female has been embraced by the trans-community as an example of individual
gender freedom being more important than theories from the "experts".

||Suits Me: The Double Life of Billy Tipton
, by Diane Wood Middlebrook. In the days before "transgender" was a word,
Billy Tipton defied the odds and lived life as a man, marrying five times
and fathering several children, despite the fact that he had been born female.
This book is valuable as one of the few biographical sources about Tipton,
but should be taken with a grain of salt as the author implausibly, and somewhat
insultingly, insists that Tipton would not have identified as a man, but as
a woman disguing herself in order to be able to make it in a man's world.
Nevertheless, i carry this title as its one of the few sources of information
about this man, who many consider a FTM pioneer.
