This was an excellent book that went into the psychology of the hermaphordite and other problems that plague the new borns. I was quite appalled that some of these things still are practiced today. This in an outstanding book for someone who is studying social/physiological structures in development of children!

I really enjoyed this book. Very interesting, very accessible. A page-turner of its own kind.

Once you begin reading "As Nature Made Him," a mesmerizing story of a medical tragedy and its traumatic results, you absolutely won't want to put it down. Following a botched circumcision, a family is convinced to raise their infant son, Bruce, as a girl. They rename the child Brenda and spend the next 14 years trying to transform him into a her. [...] Equally fascinating is the latest segment of the longtime nature/nurture controversy, and the interviews of various psychological researchers and practitioners form a larger framework around David's struggle to live as the gender he was meant to be.
