    Do a web search of  this author and his opinions before reading this book .
    It has been posted on Wikipedia that the author has written,  "Socarides also suggested that serial killer and cannibal Jeffrey Dahmer
    was an extreme example of a common homosexual type, writing "Every homosexual who wants to incorporate the body of his
     male lover is utilizing the same mental mechanism: incorporation. Most homosexuals are content to do this symbolically.
    Dahmer was psychotic; he took his homosexual disorder beyond the limits."
    In the sixth chapter, "Psychiatry" Socarides wrote that the removal of homosexuality from the American Psychiatric Association's DSM-II
    was a mistake.
     Socarides was a practicing psychiatrist and psychoanalyst in New York City from 1954 until his death. He treated patients
     for homosexuality throughout his career. He reported that "about a third" of his patients became heterosexual after treatment.
     Socarides was the father of five children: a son, Richard Socarides, from his first marriage; a daughter, also from his first
     marriage; two children from his second marriage; and one from his fourth marriage, with Claire Alford Socarides.
     Richard is openly gay and was Bill Clinton's Senior Advisor for Public Liaison for gay and lesbian issues.
