Don Clark is one of the great theoreticians and philosophers of gay consciousness, but with the gentle touch of the firm, but loving therapist—which, in fact, he is. No dogmatist, he deftly explains the psychodynamics, offers options and points the way with his own personal and personable example, but leaves it to you to choose your own path and discover your own powers.

It’s a boon to the world that his therapeutic skills translate from the therapy room to the written word. His books convey psychological and spiritual wisdom and healing.
