I got this book from my friend and I'm honored because it came from her Aunt Mickey's library in Virginia Beach. Aunt Mickey rocks! She makes great crab cakes.
Anyways, lots of cool social psychology stuff here. My favorite part is about this guy, I think he might be a dry-cleaner in Chicago, who is the "Connector" to nearly everybody in the world somehow.
Some of this book is a little weird though, like the idea that AIDS has been around for many, many decades. I don't think you can make that statement and not back it up better.
On a related note, I met a guy who makes HIV vaccines for monkeys. Apparently there's an SIV (Simian Immunodeficiency virus) and it's not as bad in monkeys and HIV is in us.
I also am using a book mark. Probably because it's not my book. I just thought I'd note that, since I never really use bookmarks.
