Parts of Just Add Hormones dwell, wittily, on the author's own experiences . . . other chapters offer a cheeky insider's discussion of pesky pronouns, pants-packing, bathroom blues, and on-the-job jitters. But the real worth of Just Add Hormones stems from its thoughtful analysis-at times philosophical, at times political, and at times polemical-of a life-changing decision.--Richard Labonte, Q Syndicate

"A heartfelt plea for mainstream American society to understand, accept and support gender diversity . . . Kailey describes all with frankness, engaging his reader with honesty and a touch of humor."
-Kirkus Reviews

"This book is a natural for the gender issues shelves."

"Anyone who has ever contemplated, is just curious about, or finds him or herself in the midst of gender transformation will appreciate and applaud this extraordinary, comprehensive journal. Both informative and quite fascinating, Kailey delivers his life story with a compassionate eye and a true heart."--Jim Piechota, Bay Area Reporter


Matt Kailey lived as a straight woman for the first forty-two years of his life, and then he changed. With the help of a good therapist, chest surgery, and some strong doses of testosterone, Kailey began living life as the man he'd always wanted to be. Now, in Just Add Hormones, Kailey uses humour and humility to explain his journey toward accepting himself as neither a woman nor someone born male.

Trans-cendent 25. Juli 2005
Von scribbler - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
So often booka written about a lived experience can frustate and even alienate. The reader is made to feel like an outsider.

I am pleased to say that JUST ADD HORMONES does't only reach out, it embraces. All the awkward and intimate questions about what it means to be trans are answered. It's an INSIDER guide but it is not cliquey. It is personal but it is not embarrassing. It is funny and smart and warm.

Recommonded reading for anyone of any gender. So says this man.

Informative, Yet Easy to Read 11. Juli 2006
Von CaptLex - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants a better understanding of the trangendered and transsexual (particularly transmen). As a man in transition, I feel as if Matt Kailey has been reading my mind (or my journal), and he also gave me an idea of what's ahead for me. I have recommended it to all my friends who want to learn more about this part of my life. Good job, Matt.

Great book for FTM or any type of gender bending. 6. April 2008
Von Proud FTM - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a good read. Overall a decent source of information on FTM and gender reassignment in general. The writer is very unique. Very interesting life story. It's somewhat of a page turner. It talks about how to tell your family and the phases the family will go through as you transition. I read this book and then gave it to my Mom to read with the hopes it would give her some understanding of gender transition. Not what I expected but overall a great book on the topic of transition. I would recommend this book to all FTM, anyone transitioning, or anyone that wants a look into the wonderful world of gender bending. Details the difference between changing gender in general and how the word "sex" is misconceived when the word transsexual is used. I would recommend this book for anyone's library.

"Do You Feel Like A Man Now? I Don't Know." 13. Dezember 2005
Von Kevin Killian - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Denver transman Matt Kailey and I must be about the same age, but we came to this space of manhood by such different paths. I picked up his book in order to help myself navigate my way around the many brilliant and varied genders of San Francisco, where every other person you meet on the scene is doing something about gender, not just sitting there and taking it. Consequently, as Kailey realizes, we sometimes don't know even the basic rules of etiquette when it comes to this new frontier. And, in addition, I was drawn by the pastel cover illustration, so apt and so clever. You might not be able to see it well in the reduced image but when you get the book you'll see it's apparently a woman diving into a large chemical test tube vat thing of a pearly blue liquid, and there's a man in it, his pose diametrically opposite and yet strangely synchronous to the woman above him. This is an allegory, I suppose, for Kailey's life, which changed gradually and organically and now he is--well, what? "What's in a name" indeed, that becomes one of the chapters, one that tells us, in simple to follow anecdotes and stories, how even the terms that we use to describe others and especially ourselves are like windows that open out into the light, or else separate us from the outside world.

Actually Kailey argues against the notion of the opposite, Uf it weren't for our fixation with binary gender style, so that "men" and "women" are supposed to be complete 180 degree opposites of each other, we wouldn't be in the terrible social mess we are now.

So maybe that front cover image isn't so cool after all.

He compares a particularly trying part of his transition to that "gray zone" that you get between sleeping and being awake. "It's that period of time in transition when some people think you are a 'ma'am,' others see you as a 'sir,' and still others are so unsure that they sputter nd stare until they finally give up and refuse to acknowledge you at all. When you have no visible gender, the whole of you becomes invisible as well; and even you start to wonder if you're really there."

Kailey was not doing this in an anonymous and sophisticated city like San Francisco, oh no, that's the point of the book. It all takes place in the heartland, well, mountain time, baby. Kailey speaks to the everybody in all of us, in a folksy way that yet has a very learned and witty flavor. He's not like the Erma Bombeck of transgenderism, though that's how they're trying to sell him. He was not born a hero, but yet has become one out of, well, there was no other place to go. As he says, "Maybe I'll damage myself in the process [of going on record, of "display"]. Maybe I'll reveal things i can never take back. but maybe because of that, someone else--a little transperson not even born yet--will eventually benefit. And that will be what I can leave for the world."

Excellent resource. 5. Oktober 2009
Von Seth - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book is great for anyone who wants to get a first-person perspective on female-to-make gender transition - obviously Matt Kailey doesn't speak for everyone, but his experience gives a good idea of what it's like. I especially appriciated his take on gender stereotypes and gendered expectations - as a man he was no longer "allowed" to show certain emotions (like telling someone that their new baby was "so adorable" because this is seen as unmasculine) or the observation that after having chest surgery he is now allowed to walk around without a shirt, something that he certainly wouldn't have been able to do beforehand.
