I have enjoyed this book. I work in healthcare and am very familiar with the disease and how it affects everyone. While the cure is out there, many people do not know they have it. Someday it will be required for all to be tested annually for HIV. Just a matter of time. ( )

I found this book very informative. My best friend was diagnosed a year ago, and I was there with him the day he got the news. Many of the stories were similar to his. I learned a lot in the first couple months of going to his meetings with him. This book filled in alot of other questions that I had. I am going to be giving this to him to read so he can better himself even further than he already has. It is terrible that 30 years later that this disease is such a problem. Lets Hope and Pray for a cure soon. ( )
