Between XX and YY: Intersexuality and the Myth of Two Sexes

Gerald N. Callahan
Chicago Review Press (
Between XX and XY is a compromise of a book. Genetic variation is explained so that any literate layperson can understand it. A very few stories remind us of the struggles faced by the “intersexed.” Treatment options are alluded to just enough so one knows to go find other information. Although this book tries to be comprehensive, it instead offers the reader just “a cocktail party knowledge.” Go someplace else if you need in-depth information on any of the covered topics. — Review: Angel Curtis
