    I received a copy of this book in a gift bag at the 2012 Lambda Literary Awards. I'm embarassed, now, to say that I knew very little about Betty Berzon. I am so glad that I had the opportunity to read the story of this remarkable woman, who gave so much to the lesbian and gay community. Berzon is the author of several books, including "Positively Gay: New Approaches to Gay & Lesbian Life" and "The Intimacy Dance: A Guide to Long-Term Success in Gay & Lesbian Relationships."

    This reads like a biography, not a memoir (as in, it's a recounting of her life, not just a lens into a specific aspect). Although some parts were interesting, overall it was very bland and boring. The "madness" she goes through is nothing compared to that of many other memoirists. Instead of delving deep into her specific stories of therapy, she prefers to gloat about her contribution to the GLBT liberation movement. Yawn. If I wanted to read a history book, I would have done so.

    This book was extremely interesting. It does not focus on typical mental illness, though there is some of that as well. The 'illness' she struggles with throughout her life is homosexuality, which was very scandalous throughout much of her lifetime. It is interesting for history's sake, as well as seeing how she overcame obstacles and turned her life into one of the best success stories I've seen from someone who experienced all the troubles and heartbreak she did.
