Format: Paperback
The essays compiled in this anthology address the many struggles and contradictions that characterize bisexuality known to anyone who idenitifies as bisexual. As I bisexual woman I was very affected by the poetry and prose of many entries and often found myself re-reading passages multiple times. This text documents the personal experiences of bisexual individuals, indicating to me that I am not alone even though I often feel without a community or place to belong. This text is wonderful read for any individual, regardless of sexual orientation, as it explains the beautiful reality of bisexuality by referencing the lives of a diverse group of bisexual men and women. Its approach to defining bisexuality and explaination of what it means to form a strong bisexual identification in society today is extremely adequate. The editors of this text deserve much praise for developing a resource which discusses the discrimination and exclusion of bisexuals from many communities while simultaneously encouraging those who identify as bisexual to assert themselves with pride and seek alliances in order to form strong, supportive communities.

Format: Paperback
This book is a necessary read for anyone who has ever questioned, contemplated, or experimented with his or her own sexuality. It dispels many of the myths surrounding bisexuality, and affirms the myriad facets bisexuality contains. The voices in this book are at times angry, touching, warm, joyful, you name it! This book prooves there is no pigeon hole to file sexual behavior away in. However, it also demonstrates the need for a bisexual community that bisexuals can identify with and draw strength from. With the variety of stories told in this book, Bi Any Other Name, affirms that this community does in fact exist. Read it!

Simply put this book is a must for anyone nervous about their bisexuality. The first book I read on the subject, back in the days before the information superwhatnot, it is informative, thought provoking and entertaining.
Highly highly recommended
