Format: Paperback
At last, a book about HIV that's tells me what I want to know, that's written by a gay guy, and that's fun to read and doesn't drag me down. I've been a regular user of Dr. G's web forum for years. It's nice to read him now, with his amusing and irreverent style, in book form (where he can concentrate on education rather than just placating or pissing off the crazies). If you've just found out you're positive, then this is the book you should read first. But I learned a lot, too, and I consider myself pretty educated on the subject. Everyone with HIV infection should read this book...and lots of other people should, too.

Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent review material for the nurse and the patient, some physicians could probably use it too!Written by a doctor for everyone! Great stuff for patient teaching in language the average person can understand. He uses words like Yucky and stuff to describe that yucky stuff! I am an HIV RN and I learned something new from it. I'm so pleased with it that I will be using it for my educational support with my clients! Covers everything! There are no wasted questions and every answer is cross referenced to other questions! WOW! I love it!

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By J. Dreisbach on October 18, 2008
Format: Paperback
This book is targeted at those individuals diagnosed as HIV positive, but it is so much more than that. This is valuable information for friends, families, and loved ones to have to understand what a loved one is experiencing now or may experience in the future. It is well written by a physician in language that everyone can understand. It includes information that cover all areas of life--not just physical health, but mental health, relationships, sexual activity. I highly recommend this for professionals working in the health care field on any level.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had a few personal gripes reading the book. It reads more 'clinical' in a doctor-patient way which didn't appeal so much to me and the use of so many apostrophes made it seem like someone trying to lighten the mood by making a unnecessary joke (softening the approach doesn't work well in this case). The commentary of two patients throughout the book was much more effective. The bold text that highlights the key words and phrases got a bit much in the beginning and was distracting but I realise that they were important.

Having said all that, I found the information in the book great and the 'clinical' aspect does help in that regard. I recommend reading this book as well as reading The first year: HIV by Brett Grodeck which is more 'personal' and comes from someone who has HIV for over 20 years.
The author here certainly is highly knowledgeable in the subject as he has been involved with HIV patients from the beginning of the epidemic so I appreciate his point of view immensely. It was just the way the book was written that I found occasionally annoying.

With a warm and friendly approach to AIDS education, Dr. Gallant has shared his exceptional experience and knowledge as a researcher and physician focusing on HIV and AIDS.

The book is beautifully crafted to invite the reader to take one's time to digest the medical terms that are not part of everyone's lexicon. It's a smooth handling of a devastating disease.

Before reading this timely book, I thought I 'knew' all there was to know, from a patient's point of view. Of course, I was wrong...and 'that's' GOOD NEWS!

In addition to providing the latest scientific and medical information, Dr. Gallant has succeeded in stressing how hopeful the future can be.

I strongly recommend this book for anyone or organization dealing with the complex reality of this horrendous disease.

This book is a great choice for workshops, clinics, caregivers (spiritual and physical), and, of course, the individual confronting the disease first hand.
