Interesting book

It's called Self Made Man and it's about a woman who lives the life of a man for 18months. I've not read it yet and only just heard about it myself, but it does look interesting.

However, couldn't one just read any piece of literature written by or about a transperson(s) to know what living the life of the other gender is like and how things have changed? Sometimes one could even learn a bit on the subject of social differences between the genders and how they are reinforced when reading books like this. (Leslie Feinberg anyone?)

Or, better yet, one could simply visit Gender Public Advocacy Coalition (GPAC) to see what others in various communities are trying to do in order to combat gender stereotypes.
