Reclaiming Your Life : The Gay Man's Guide to Love, Self-Acceptance, and Trust
By Rik Isensee. This book is an excellent way for the gay male to let go of the baggage in his life that is the basis for self-destructive behavior. Gay males all too often fail to live up to their potential because we carry baggage of growing up in repressive families, schools, and communities. Isensee identifies the possible sources of this baggage and then invites his readers to work it through for themselves with a series of questions at the end of each chapter. Hence, this is a book to be worked through and the process can be liberating or as the title states "reclaiming". Worth the read and the reflection.

Love Between Men : Enhancing Intimacy and Keeping Your Relationship Alive
By Rik Isensee. David McWhirter and Andrew Mattison, authors of The Male Couple, say it's "must reading for all male couples", while Michael Shernoff of the National Lesbian/Gay Health Foundation, says it's "bound to become a classic".

The Day We Met : The Very First Day of Long-Term Relationships
By Jack Hart. The Day We Met is a touching book that shows how men can share their lives, long-term, with love and understanding. Broken hearts happen and they could be healed. Search more optimistically. A good book for those who believe in love.
