Can you believe it happened this early? One small thing I really admired was that Elton John gives credit where credit is due.
He admires the actions of men he really disagrees with on nearly every score--Republican Senators, corrupt foreign Presidents, U. President George W. He acknowledges their huge contributions to the fight against AIDS. Even pointing out the flaws of certain programs, like President Bush's abstinence only education, he appreciates the things that work. I learnt a lot from this book. I feel so much more connected to this cause than I did before, and I'm grateful for it.
Elton John is clearly very proud of his foundation, as he well should be.

Elton John’s Longtime Manager on Early Days With ‘Reg’ | Best Classic Bands
Extraordinary power, and too often it is concentrated in the hands of those who don't understand the consequences of their deeds and words. And sometimes, the power is in the hands of truly evil people who just don't give a damn about human life. We must keep on fighting. View all 3 comments.

I first chose to read this book just because it was written by Elton John a fav musician in my younger years , and I wanted to hear what he had to say. He doesn't call himself an authority on the subject; however, I would. The book begins with John's account of the Ryan White story, which I remembered from the early 80's.
Ryan was a hemophiliac who at age 13 was diagnosed with AIDS caused from a blood transfusion. Ryan died as a teenager, but not before he was ostracised from his school and community. Ignorance, lack of love, and contempt caused Ryan's short life on this earth to be a difficult one; however, we was a Christian filled with faith and love. AIDS isn't like any other disease. There's no complete cure for heart disease, cancer, or diabetes, but there is for AIDS.
AIDS could be wiped out by the year if the money was allocated I encourage you to read "Love is the Cure". Definitely an eye-opener. Absolutely a must read.

During my time training to be a medical librarian, I tried to stay current with popular medical information.
I find this book to be a very approachable look at the AIDS epidemic.
Whi I received this book for free from a First Reads giveaway. While it did have its share of name-dropping not entirely surprising in a celebrity-authored book , Sir Elton John has put forth a very informative and eye-opening view of this epidemic. I very much enjoyed it, and would recommend it to anyone I know who is interested in public health or LGBTQ rights issues. Jul 17, Carolyn Martinez rated it really liked it.
It all begins with his friendship with Ryan White, who transforms Elton in a deep and meaningful way. It is not well-written in the literary sense but is straightforward and written with conviction and love. Jul 30, Amy rated it it was amazing.

It was truly inspirational to read. Elton John writes as if he is talking through the page and into your ear as if he was right next to you! It was very interesting with many facts about AIDS, the history, and about his life.
