    What lies within you

    Sometimes you judge a book by its cover. Sometimes you read the book and discover so much more. If education is experience. And the essence of experience is self-reliance. Then you should experience this book for yourself. On the surface the book is about teaching and homosexuality. But what it is really about is something that we can all understand and use to better ourselves. It is about your identity and how you censor and project yourself to others - how much or little do you reveal. It questions why we do what we do in order to make ourselves fit a role in order to gain acceptance. Have you ever experienced a rite of passage? Such as becoming an adult, parent or receiving a driver¿s license. If you have faced such transitions in your life, this book is for you! You will learn a lot from the discussion about how these changes affect how you perceive others and they you. If the duty of a writer is to dig into the psyche and mythologize our environment, Kate Evans has done that with this book. It is universal for all kinds of transitions and times in your life. Or as Ralph Waldo Emerson put it¿ ¿What lies behind you and what lies before you are small matters compared to what lies within you.¿

    Made me think about the question: Who am I?

    This brilliant book got me thinking deeply about what it means to be a person in terms of gender, sexuality, professional identity, and more. The writer makes some complex theory come alive in a clear, unique way. And she grounds that theory in fascinating stories about gay teachers. But you don't have to be gay or a teacher to enjoy this book. Anyone who is interested in the question 'Who am I?' will find this book compelling

    Negotiating Myself

    Since my son came out as gay, I have been reading everything I can about homosexuality. I found Evans' book to give insightful observations into society's thought process. The book also helped me clarify my own feelings and thought processes.
