I recommend this book for almost all of us. I believe(d) that I keep up with the AIDS crisis - treatments, advances, etc..but there was a lot I didn't know. For people looking for a biography of Elton John - that really isn't want the book is about --- it is much more about Ej's personal journey from being an addict and really not caring much about his well-being, to one of being clean, appreciating all he has and figuring out how to "give back." He is very proud of his organization and the work they accomplish, but very humble about himself. He spends time on his journey - starting with his friendship with Ryan White and his progression of understanding about the disease. His theory is that it will take all of us to eradicate AIDS, but that it is possible - the Governments, the drug companies --- and each one of us to believe that every single person suffering from AIDS/HIV is worth saving - no matter who they are, what they are, how the virus is contracted --- if we treat everyone (in fact, why not treat everyone no matter what their status the same) with dignity and love, then we can get rid of the disease...and this is possible without an absolute cure. What an exciting, hopeful prognosis.
