In the November 2012 Book Forum, copyediting of the concluding paragraph of The LGBT Casebook review by Lawrence Hartmann, M.D. (Am J Psychiatry 2012; 169:1215–1216) changed its intent. The review should have concluded:

There is also a startling first sentence. It is the first sentence in the whole book, in the Foreword (and thus perhaps not edited by the book's editors): “People in the LGBT community are just like everyone else.” Like, yes; just like, no. If that were true, this book would not have been written. The challenge that this good book meets is to deal thoughtfully and respectfully with LGBT people, who are very much like non-LGBT people but also have important differences.

The online version of this review and the accompanying PDF have been corrected to restore the author's original wording.
