"Jennifer Baumgardner's Look Both Ways is a jaunty, fearless, personal and political look at bisexuality today. Because she knows that sex is a way we communicate, not just procreate, she gives us a glimpse of a freer future in which sexuality is less about who is talking and more about what is said." --Gloria Steinem
"In a time when the powers that be are closing borders, narrowing our thinking and sexuality, Look Both Ways is a brave and celebratory call to open to complexity, to live in the questions, to surrender to the non-PC world of desire, to become sexual nomads." --Eve Ensler, creator of V-Day and The Vagina Monologues
"From the personal to the political, Baumgardner speaks about bisexuality with honesty, eloquence, and authority. This interesting and contemporary book deserves a spot on every tuned-in woman's bookshelf." --Cathi Hanauer, author of Sweet Ruin and editor of The Bitch in the House
"I can't believe it's non fiction! From subway to bathtub and back again, this book reads like a great novel." --Kathleen Hanna, activist and musician, founding member of Riot Grrrl
"In Look Both Ways, Jennifer Baumgardner elucidates the pivotal--and too often unacknowledged--role that bisexual people are playing in America's social awakening. Deriving her own inspiration from renegade truth-tellers like Ani DiFranco and June Jordan, Baumgardner unleashes a gentle assault on those of all sexual preferences who would deny the complexity of human sexuality." --Johnny Temple, writer and publisher, Akashic Books
"My god, its all so complicated! In Look Both Ways Jennifer Baumgardner does a wise and witty job of figuring out the hidden messages and reading them to us in her deliciously cool and contemporary voice: the one that gives us hope for the feminist future." --Vivian Gornick
"Jennifer Baumgardner is the big sister you’ve always wished you had. She is daring, intimate, and raw. She shows you how normal she is, how normal you are." --Leora Tanenbaum, author of Slut! and Catfight
