Many of us, consciously or unconsciously, harbor negative feelings and tend to ignore things that frighten us or don't fit into our belief system. One of these terrifying things is AIDS. For decades, since it's earliest recorded cases, as much misinformation and propaganda has been spread as the truth and information that takes away the mystery, the taboo, and stigma associated with HIV and AIDS.
In The Skeptics Guide to the Global Aids Crisis, Dale Hanson Bourke provides a hard-hitting, eye-opening, and thought-provoking book of information. She doesn't dance around the issues, the questions, and fear. Rather, the author examines a great number of issues and misconceptions, while shedding light into behind-the-scenes research. She also divulges the far-reaching ramifications of this epidemic. From government policy and legislation, those seeking refuge, and the many debates regarding medical treatment and intervention, the facts are straightforwardly presented.
Read it, ponder its message, and be sure to use the information within its pages. In this case, as with many other areas, ignorance is not bliss. Truth and its many companions are always a good place to start, and this book is and can be a start for greater understanding, insight, and huge personal development.
