Good HIV Book
« on: October 08, 2009, 05:58:52 PM »
I've been looking for a good book on HIV ... While I'm not newly diagnosed I'm still new in many ways ... There has got to be some good non-internet based literature out there that can provide information on HIV and living with it ... I don't have the time to sift through thousands of pages on Internet documents so a one-stop resource would be a true treasure.

Does anyone have suggestions? Thank you in advance.

Have a great day :-)

Yes...here is a good one:


...and another one


The fist one I read when I was diagnosed and it really helped me.  I liked it a lot and highly recommend it.  A few people here mentioned the second one so I bought that one a few weeks ago as well.  I did not like it as much as Gallant's book but it was still pretty good. Either one would be fine but I thought the first one had a more optimistic, positive, and humanistic tone. 


P.S. "100 questions" was indeed a "true treasure" to me.  I don't think I would be doing as well as I am today (diagnosed late July) if I had not read it.  It opened my eyes to info I didn't have, made me feel much more optimistic, made me realize I was not alone, and gave me pointers on how to find additional resources.

I know you asked for books but I thought I'd mention thebody.com since it's a very good website for all things HIV.
