"In her clear and candid book, Fletcher shares the hard won wisdom gained from a lifelong effort to understand the root causes of core sexual orientation, race and gender issues facing us today. In prose that is accessible, honest and refreshingly straightforward, we are invited to become the beneficiaries of Fletcher's experience, and to push ourselves toward a more evolved and nuanced view of those different from ourselves. It is a gift all of us can be thankful for."
