Publisher Comments:

In 1967, after a twin baby boy suffered a botched circumcision, his family agreed to a radical treatment that would alter his gender. The case would become one of the most famous in modern medicine—and a total failure. As Nature Made Him tells the extraordinary story of David Reimer, who, when finally informed of his medical history, made the decision to live as a male. A macabre tale of medical arrogance, it is first and foremost a human drama of one man's—and one family's—amazing survival in the face of terrible odds.

Synopsis:

Now in paperback comes the bestselling account of the now-famous "twins" case that became a touchstone in the debates on gender identity and nature versus nurture. "Riveting, cleanly written, and brilliantly researched".--"New York Times Book Review". Photos.
