Format: Paperback
As a member of the Gay and Lesbian "Tribe" I have found Empowering The Tribe to be an invaluable tool for all members of the "Tribe" especially those with self-esteem issues. Taking us through a series of real-life stories, Dr. Habib gives us his keen insight on coming out, self-acceptance, family relationships, religion, and more. The book includes meditations and affirmations at the conclusion of each chapter. They are a wonderful way to reflect and focus as you work through each issue presented. Dr. Pimental-Habib's book is written in a style that is simple to understand, entertaining to read, and easy to apply to your own life. I highly recommend this book for all "Tribe" members, their friends, and their families.

Format: Paperback
As the national columns editor of a group of 27 regional parenting publications, I especially appreciate Dr. Pimental-Habib's attention to family relationships. Surely one of the most difficult and painful things gay people face is the inability to be themselves with the people who should love them unconditionally. I appreciate the comments and recommendations Dr. Pimental-Habib provides-they could change the lives of readers.

3 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Dr. J. Kerrigan on June 13, 2000
Format: Paperback
As an educator for 30 years I found the book outstanding. I have been involved in education from the K-level to the College level. This book helps me help those parents and families of gay and lesbian relatives understand and relate to the gay population. I also do volunteer work at a facility for gay and lesbian patients, and reading the variety of wisdom contained in this book often makes the day for the group. Dr. Pimental-Habib has written his book in a wonderful style that I am able to adopt his words of inspiration to the cross section of population I also work with. My thanks to Dr. Pimental-Habib for providing me with a wonderful teaching tool.
