The series provides a very comprehensive coverage of all important areas of HIV/AIDS and strikes a very good balance between scientific details and more broad issues of a wider interest to both scientists and also people without a science background. The books are written in very simple English making them easy to read for a range of people with varied backgrounds. I will acquire a set to give to my staff working with me who even though have been involved in this area may find some aspects interesting to read and understand. I found sections on “Here is what you need to know”, “straight from the source”, “Real people” to be very informative and helpful making the book more relevant and down to earth. I recommend this without any reservations and I wish all people who care about AIDS could read this series and be well informed of the issues which have been confronted with this disease during the past two decades or so. Dr. Saidi Kapiga Infectious Disease Epidemiology Unit, Department of Epidemiology & Population Health London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine Keppel Street, London, WC1E 7HT, UK Currently based at: Mwanza Intervention Trials Unit National Institute for Medical Research Isamilo Road P.O.
