This book will only be helpful if you know next to nothing on this subject. There are some serious works dealing with sexual orientation in the workplace. This is not one of them. A serious book would examine the kinds of issues that exist, why they exist and how a manager can address those issues. The authors' stance 'they're here, they're queer, get use to it' doesn't work when dealing with employees making a gay employee's life miserable. Considering the book consists of mostly chapters on 'work coming out' stories, that add human interest but little substance, and 'how to support diversity' lists, that lack originality, not to mention a few blank pages insert here and there, the only thing I could think of is that the authors wanted to cash in on a hot topic fast.
