The Man Who Folded Himself, written in 1973 (and reissued by BenBella in 2003) is a classic science fiction novel by award-winning author David Gerrold. This work was nominated for both Hugo and Nebula awards and is considered by some critics to be the finest time travel novel ever written.
"David Gerrold proves that he can do all the things that made us love Heinlein's storytelling - and often better." (Orson Scott Card)
"This is all widely imaginative and mindbending... Gerrold is such a good writer that he keeps us reading through... shifts of time, space and character -- right into pre-history... After reading this one, time-machine addicts will never quite be able to look at the gadget again as a simple plaything." ( Publisher's Weekly)
"A major talent." ( Booklist)

Good idea - ruined
No. The narration was fine, but this was not a true sci-fi book. The time travel concept was just a vehicle to present a very overtly sexual story about relationships and someone having sex with himself, first as a man then as a woman. There was so much more it could have been, but it just focused on a single part.
No - I have ready many books like this, most of them far better.
Not really - it was not even very well written, the dialogue was wooden and somewhat childish.
This was obviously a book written about sexuality of all kinds and not really a book about time travel, although that was the central premise.
