Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 082981244X, Hardcover)Linda Handel's self-help guide for gay men and lesbians may seem hopelessly basic or even insulting if you live in the therapeutic meccas of New York, San Francisco, or Berkeley, where almost any passing stranger can align your chakras, organize an intervention, or point out your internalized homophobia. But in smaller communities, or places where gay-friendly counsel may be hard to find, Handel's advice could be the best thing around (and more trustworthy than an AOL chatroom). Her chief argument is that even when we've embraced our sexuality and faced the trauma of coming out to our friends and family, most of us still need work, whether it's fine-tuning or a psychic overhaul. Covering a range of self-esteem and relationship issues--from sex addiction to spirituality to aging to alcoholism--this book will help readers identify areas for improvement. Handel provides the clear, nonjudgmental guidance one would hope for in a therapist--or a hardheaded friend--and is especially sensitive to the more complicated lives of older gay people. --Regina Marler
