No los he leído todos, pero sí muchos de ellos. Los de Aardberg están en castellano. Los comentarios sobre los que habéis leído, u otros, son bienvenidos.
Desde luego, el problema de la atracción al mismo sexo no se cura leyendo, pero comprender el problema, ayuda. Además, a la enfermedad psicológica o psiquiátrica de la homosexualidad con frecuencia se le une una especie de enfermedad intelectual que impide descubrir las mentiras de los activistas pro gay. Esta enfermedad de la inteligencia, que roba la esperanza de salir de la homosexualidad sí se cura, o, al menos, se alivia, con estas u otras lecturas.

Al menos, esa primera fase, la de la negación del problema, yo ya la he superado.
