Read this book if you'd like to improve your relationship and communicate better with your boyfriend, lover, or even your next date! You'll learn how to resolve conflicts instead of escalating or retaliating, enhancing the sense of intimacy and love that brought you together in the first place.“LOVE BETWEEN MEN is a treasure…Isensee condenses years of clinical expertise of working with gay couples and translates this into a volume that is chock-full of enormously helpful and practical ways for men to look at, understand, and improve their relationships. It is bound to become a classic.†â€â€Michael Shernoff, ACSW“…a valid guide to establishing closer, more enduring partnerships…fills a gap in the resources available to couples.†â€â€K. Orton Williams, San Francisco Sentinel“…there is meat on these bones; material that any person in a relationship, or considering/fearing one, can learn from…. Isensee’s insights are solid and his chapter on abusive relationships is the sort of material rarely discussed within the gay community. And his summation chapters, which include the awful thought of ‘What If It Doesn't Work Out?,’ are astute.†â€â€Dale Reynolds, Lambda Book Report“This is a practical, down-to-earth manual for men who live in intimate relationships and want to improve them…. This book does more than help couples solve complicated interpersonal problemsâ€â€it helps them to avoid them.†â€â€Harvey L. Gochros, D.S.W., professor, School of Social Work, University of Hawaii“lsensee explores gay male relationships by examining the difficulty of maintaining successful male-male bondings in a hostile, homophobic society. He discusses problems unique to homosexual relationships…. A helpful book.†â€â€Library Journal“A welcome addition to practical gay literature.†â€â€Booklist
