Review quote

Along with the rising tide of homosexual emancipation, there is, both in the U.S. and Europe, an increasing demand from homosexual people troubled over their inner condition, for sympathetic, constructive, and-as far as possible-reconstructive help. Nicolosi offers a sensible alternative route. -- Gerald J. M. van den Aardweg Offers hope to the thousands of men who do not want to feel coerced by either their own internal conflicts or by outside political pressures to live a life inimical to who they are and to who they want to be. -- Althea J. Horner PhD, author of Object Relations and the Developing Ego in Therapy
