  • “Richard Cohen shares his compelling personal story in which he journeys from homosexuality to a new life as husband and father. The transition has offered him valuable insights into the nature and healing of same-sex attractions.”                          — Joseph Nicolosi, Ph.D., Author, Reparative Therapy of Male Homosexuality


  • “This book is a testament to a heroic and successful struggle to regain one’s heterosexual identity. It gives hope to many.”  — Charles Socarides, M.D., Author, Homosexuality: A Freedom Too Far

  • "In this self-help book, ex-gay psychotherapist Cohen writes for gays and lesbians who want to transition to heterosexuality. His comprehensive, well-written, well-organized, and heavily referenced guide views homosexuality as a symptom of disrupted affiliation with the same-sex parent and incomplete feelings of maleness/femaleness, building on the theories of Joseph Nicolosi and Elizabeth Moberly. Cohen's approach is sympathetic and rational and leans mostly on psychosocial factors, but he also assumes nondenominational religious affiliation."    — The Library Journal,Volume 126, No. 12, July 2001
