Critical Praise

"Until recently, gay men over 40 seemingly didn't exist. In Finally Out, Dr. Olson debunks such ignorance and lends insight into the hearts of mature men who can be gay, sexy, and respectable. It's high time."

—Tim Turner, playwright (credits include Out Late) and journalist

"I knew I was gay from my early college days. I wondered why other men found it so difficult to come out. Now, after reading Finally Out, I understand."

—Larry Jacobson, Author of The Boy Behind the Gate: How His Dream of Sailing Around the World Became a Six-Year Odyssey of Adventure, Fear, Discovery and Love

"Finally Out goes far beyond a coming out story of a married, middle-aged gay man. It represents a carefully reasoned book about all human sexuality. Dr. Olson is so honest and direct that any reader will soon get the impression that he knows what he writes about. Lay readers, both gay and straight, will relate his ideas to their own lives, and professionals in social work, religion, psychology, and sociology will find this book invaluable."

—Dr. Bernard J. Brommel, Professor Emeritus, Northeastern Illinois University, and co-author of Family Communication: Cohesion and Change

"A must-read. Provides insight into a hidden population of men who have sex with other men but may not wish to identify themselves as gay."

—Abraham Morgentaler, M.D., FACS, Author of Testosterone for Life: Recharge Your Vitality, Sex Drive, Muscle Mass, and Overall Health; Director, Men's Health Boston; Associate Professor, Harvard Medical School
