Reviews

I wondered why other men found it so difficult to come out. Now, after reading Finally Out, I understand." Larry Jacobson, motivational speaker, author, The Boy Behind the Gate"
"Finally Out goes far beyond a coming out story of a married, middle-age gay man. It represents a carefully reasoned book about all human sexuality. Dr. Olson is so honest and direct that any reader will soon get the impression that he knows what he writes about. Lay readers, both gay and straight, will relate his ideas to their own lives, and professionals in social work, religion, psychology, and sociology will find this book invaluable." --Dr. Bernard J. Brommel, professor emeritus, Northeastern Illinois University, coauthor, Family Communication: Cohesion and Change
"Finally Out is a much-needed book that fills out our picture of how gay men come to terms with the apparent dichotomy between their rational assumptions about the two sexes and their own set of sexual attractions that do not fit that norm. Loren Olson blends the story of his own experience of coming out and an array of scientific information to develop his thesis. An insightful read." --Amity P. Buxton, PhD, author, The Other Side of the Closet
"I wondered why other men found it so difficult to come out. Now, after reading Finally Out, I understand." --Larry Jacobson, motivational speaker, author, The Boy Behind the Gate
"Until recently, gay men over forty seemingly didn't exist. In Finally Out, Dr. Olson debunks such ignorance and lends insight into the hearts of mature men who can be gay, sexy, and respectable. It's high time." --Tim Turner, playwright, journalist
