Bi: Notes for a Bisexual Revolution is a 2013 book by Shiri Eisner (she/her).[1]


Bi: Notes for a Bisexual Revolution received much acclaim.

Katelynn Bishop, writing for Bi Women Quarterly, said:

« ...what I appreciate most about Bi: Notes for a Bisexual Revolution is that Eisner is deliberate and unapologetic about writing a book about bisexuality. She doesn't rewrite bisexuality as queer identity, or pansexuality, and she bravely takes on the 'bi is binary' argument. [...] Eisner covers the gamut of issues affecting bi people and communities. She provides a well-researched reference guide to where bisexual politics and communities have been, and urges readers to move in a more radical direction. [...] She blends theoretical discussions with concrete examples throughout the book, from detailed analyses of representations of bisexuality in porn, to the content of media campaigns produced by bisexual groups, to discussions of specific events within bi communities, such as BiCon. Shiri Eisner is also extremely thorough in her explanations. She includes a glossary at the end and places text boxes with definitions of key concepts throughout the book, and she carefully elaborates the basic concepts on which many of her arguments are based, such as male privilege, racialization, etc. In doing so, she practices the politics she preaches, which are politics that never 'speaks over' anyone's head. And she writes with compassion for readers, including trigger warnings throughout the book. [...] I'd highly recommend this book to anyone interested in bisexuality in any form.[2] »
