Excellent advice for any relationship
on August 30, 2010
I bought this book for my son, now that he's come out. As a gay man, I wanted him to have the very best, rewarding life possible. I've been rereading a lot of the books on gay relationships I bought some time ago, before passing them on to my son.
This is an excellent guide. Gay men face some issues that straight couples don't, such as internalized homophobia, that are covered quite well in this book. A lot of it is just good sound advice on how to settle disagreements, how to live with other people, how to get along in any relationship: whether it be a gay relationship with your partner, effectively dealing with your boss, coworkers or customers, or with your straight friends and relatives.
A straight coworker found this book quite useful when I loaned it to him for advice on an abusive relationship an ex-girlfriend of his found herself in.
This is a great little book, and at the price, you really can't go wrong. I found it terribly helpful as a guide to getting along well with my son.
