This seemed like a looong book. It covers this issue from almost every conceivable angle. This may be good, but if you are looking for specific info, like how to love a gay child if you are a parent, or vice-versa, you are going to have to wade through a lot of tangential information to get there. In a print edition, you can easily skip around to find the info that interests you, but that is harder to do with an audio book. Also, a big chunk of this book is about loving yourself if you are gay, or what it is like to be gay (the author is gay). This might be helpful if you are gay, especially if you are feeling insecure about your identity. However, if you are not gay, this info might be less helpful, or maybe less relevant, though it is obviously of some use to understand a little bit about how it feels to be gay. This book could easily be broken up into two or three books, with the first book called, "Being Gay." I felt the reading of the book was a little bit robotic or mechanical.

This was a very detailed and comprehensive account of the gay experience, the journey to personal authenticity as a gay person and the ways to understand, interact and support gay people positively.
It offered information, explanations and tools that can benefit the gay individual, their family and friends, working professionals and society at large. It was a thoroughly informative and enjoyable book. I highly recommend it to anyone who is committed to understanding and dealing with gay people with the same care, dignity and respect afforded to the general population.
