A Dark Journey Into The Light is an interesting and thought provoking read for anyone who has questioned urges and desires familiar to us all. I spent sixty years of my life in “limbo” trying to understand what was driving me to explore every fantasy I could find. We all enjoy sex but the book provides interesting insights into the workings of the mind of a sex addict. We are much more than what we feel, and less than what we think. This book explores what is possible when we find balance between the two. This is not a story of finding redemption through “finding God”. It’s simply the story of finding myself.

A man's personal journey It's more than just about a sexual addiction, but that's the journey that this man takes. He needs to deal with his own demons and discover who he is. At times this story is disturbing, but it is also provocative and explorative. It's one of those books you won't forget, you may want to read it over again. It is very well written and I applaud the author for writing this. This entered the world of BDSM (which can be judged harshly by those not in the lifestyle) and the author had some ideas that didn't necessarily coincide with my own personal views, but the story is his and he wrote it. Wonderful.
Reviewed by Romuald Dzemo for Readers' Favorite A Dark Journey into the Light by Josef is a brutally honest autobiography of a man’s journey in search of himself, a journey to redefine himself. It is dark, troubling, but illuminating; a story that will help others look at their lives with brutal honesty. With unwonted candor, Josef shares his secret with readers, a habit that entered his life from his early years of childhood. He shares his addiction to sex, the internal conflict resulting from being everything against the values preached by the Catholic Church and the views of his mother. Over the years, he’d get to explore and indulge in his sexual fantasies with prostitutes. But his secret sexual adventures take a terrible toll on him: his marriage suffers, he loses a son, and the nauseating sense of guilt eats him from deep within. Can he find redemption? This is a story that will resonate with many people. It takes a lot of courage to walk and share Josef’s story. I enjoyed the fact that he came to a point where he decided to seek professional help, a point where he chose to be honest with himself. This book isn’t just about sharing the darkness of his soul, but how he found the light, how he came to accept himself and start on the journey towards compassion. A Dark Journey into the Light is well-written, at times troubling, but so deeply touching. From the very start of the story, he writes: “All my life I’ve wished for nothing more than just to be normal, as I’ve looked around and envied other people’s untroubled lives.” One immediately senses the inner pain he bears, but his journey towards freedom and light has many lessons for readers.
"TURBULENT, BRUTAL, GRUELING, HEARTWARMING...JUST AMAZING!!!" Oh my goodness, this book was excellent! It was an emotional masterpiece. It was like being on a rollercoaster that you just couldn't wait to stop. Josef’s journey was an enthralling and sit on the edge of your seat captivating story of one man’s journey trying to discover one’s place and self in a world that contains any man’s desires. Those desires and urges are a driving force and can often having you living a life that you never expected. A dark Journey into the light gives us the facts of Josef’s life, yes, and also the emotions that attend the events of his life, and at the same time it gives us so so much more. It was an angsty mess at some points and you just had to continue to find out what happened. I was only going to start this book and read for a few minutes but I couldn't put it down. This is not a traditional autobiography but I guess that’s implied in the title. So some of the details about his life are hinted at but not elaborated. What's most powerful about Josef's "spiritual autobiography" is that he's not trying to manipulate the reader one way or another. It's entirely possible to be completely changed by the end and yet leave the book disagreeing with him in some areas no less than at the beginning. He doesn't expect his readers to agree with him, or the choices he made he's simply telling his story. And an interesting story it is. I would highly recommend this to anyone!
