"Coming to terms with your sexuality is a lifetime process," asserts clinical psychologist Johnson at the beginning of this workbook conceived to aid men in pacing that course of events. Using a holistic approach, the author presents a well-structured series of exercises that allow the reader to take stock of his life, identify negative behavior patterns and emotions, and develop strategies to heal them, in conjunction with therapy if necessary. Although Johnson occasionally lapses into popular psychology buzzwords, the psychological underpinnings of the exercises are well researched, solid, and sensible, comparing favorably with those in Michelangelo Signorile's Outing Yourself (LJ 6/15/95). A fine addition to the recent spate of coming-out books, this is a good choice for public libraries and gay studies collections wishing to strengthen their self-help offerings.?Richard Violette, Social Law Lib., Boston
