I finally have an answer to that question: 'If you could recommend
one book on the future of gender.....?'

_Gender Shock_ by Phyllis Burke, Anchor Books

A beautifully conceived, accessibly written book about the latest
developments in human gender and sexual evolution, encompassing both
psychological and physiological changes. Look for intersex to become
the hottest topic this year--Erin Reid and I have concluded that if
we don't stop operating on intersexual babies (2,000 per year in the
U.S. alone are 'corrected') we are most likely cutting off a path of
our own evolution at its source.
