Reviewed by Ray Simmons for Readers' Favorite

It’s tough being a teenager. Period. I am middle aged now, but I remember this like it was yesterday. In my writing, I have often advocated having a course on life to teach young people about some of the difficult choices they will have to make in this life. In such a course on life, I would most certainly include Pride: You Can’t Heal If You’re Hiding From Yourself by Ronald Holt, D.O. It is quite simply the best example of helpful, even necessary advice and information for young people who may be struggling with the added layer of complexity that comes with being gay. This book will help them. This book will help their friends, family members, and anyone else who is concerned with their well being help them too.

Pride: You Can’t Heal If You’re Hiding From Yourself is well written. It is well organized and it is in a style that I think will resonate with young people. Ronald Holt is writing from a place of compassion and understanding, and the reader can feel it. Pride: You Can’t Heal If You’re Hiding From Yourself is full of good practical and spiritual advice for young people who may be experiencing one of the most personal and intense episodes in their young lives. This book can help. This book can point them in the right direction, and when you are confused that can be a great start. I liked the message and I liked the purpose and intention. A great book.
