Transsexual Workers: An Employer's Guide by Janis Walworth " Clear, sensitive, no-nonsense, informative resource. This is a book I can recommend to our counselors, job developers and employers alike to increase awareness, understanding, and more comfort around issues which may be very new to many people. The resource guide in the back is excellent for going more in-depth with various issues." "Very helpful for employers, I am a transgendered employee at a large corporation. My manager found this book extremely helpful in assisting me with my transition at work. In particular it is accessible to people unfamiliar with gender issues without being dry or long-winded. Its employer perspective is especially helpful."

From the "real-life test", to surgical, medical and legal concerns, to the start of life "thereafter", this book provides the necessary tools and information to make transitioning proceed smoothly and successfully. A "must-read" for male to female and female to male transsexuals beginning or currently engaged in the transition process."
True Selves : Understanding Transsexualism-For Families, Friends, Coworkers, and Helping Professionals by Mildred L. Brown, Chloe Ann Rounsley "Brown and Rounsley's solidly based introduction to many aspects of living as a transsexual provides general information about the dilemma of feeling trapped in the wrong physical gender, about such a person's development, and about locating a gender therapist. Brown and Rounsley also detail the process of transition between genders, starting with legal and identity changes and proceeding to changing outward modes of self-presentation (they include sample "coming-out" letters to employers, coworkers, friends, and family members) and dealing with bathroom issues, hormone treatments, surgical options, and guidelines for finding social support. First-person accounts from transsexuals augment general readability and put human faces on the issues discussed."
