" Clear, concise and completely accurate, Maggiore's powerful little book is highly recommended reading for anyone who has ever had the doubt about any aspect of the 'global AIDS pandemic,' and is absolutely compulsory reading for those few never have." -- Harvey Bialy, PhD Editor at large, Nature Biotechnology
" This book exposes the many incongruencies in conventional wisdom and establishes why we must question how AIDS research and treatment are currently conducted. The paradox of the search for an AIDS cure is that the thing most neededopen debate and scientific exchangeis the thing most feared by the AIDS establishment." -- Bob Guccione, Jr. Editor and publisher, Gear magazine
" This splendid book is a perfect text for provoking university students. It requires them to think critically about sexuality and public health, obliging them to scrutinize the unscientific dogmas churned out by the AIDS orthodoxy. Maggiore's book should be required reading for all undergraduates." -- Charles Geshekter, PhD Department of History, California State University, Chico
" Until recently, I was a physician at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, the number-one funded AIDS research center in the country. Before January of 1998, my knowledge of AIDS was typical; I knew that HIV caused AIDS because that's what the textbooks said. I had no reason to think otherwise and never knew or cared that anybody thought differently. I ordered this book on a whim, but once I started reading it, I didn't stop until I hit the back cover.
" I used to think that medical research wasn't politically directed and financially motivated, and that pharmaceutical companies wouldn't compromise patient well-being for a profit. I used to think the FDA was there to protect the American public. Now I know better. Now I tell the story of AIDS to anyone who will listen." -- Rob Hodson, MD Former professor of anesthesiology, University of Alabama, Birmingham
A succinct summary of the gaping holes in the official view of AIDS, this book has become an underground classic. Christine Maggiore, whose own HIV positive diagnosis didn't stop her from disobeying the authorities and giving birth to a healthy child, challenges all the politically correct opinions about the health crisis. A straightforward, jargon-free little book that provides volumes of highly explosive intellectual ammunition in its brief pages." -- Ian Young Author, The Stonewall Experiment: A Gay Psychohistory
