Mar 20, 2008 Elizabeth rated it 3 of 5 stars Recommends it for: people who want to know about AIDS in Africa

I do not believe, personally, that we should absolve people so easily of responsibility for our own behaviours. But I do believe this is a useful book nonetheless. If you are interested in AIDS in Africa, you should read it.
