From Library Journal:

Every year thousands of American women are diagnosed with HIV. Currently, a quarter of the 850,000 to 950,000 Americans with HIV or AIDS are women. Internist Clark, obstetrician/gynecologist Robert Maupin, and psychologist Jill Hayes Hammer merge their expert perspectives on living with HIV to produce a comprehensive, practical, yet consultable and reassuring guide. They address a multitude of topics in great detail that relate specifically to women with HIV/AIDS: adjusting to life with HIV; treating symptoms, complications, and the virus itself; sexual, contraceptive, and reproductive issues; and a variety of important related subjects. Appendix 1 is a sample tracking sheet for medications, tests, and vaccinations, and Appendix 2 lists resources for people with HIV. An excellent glossary is also provided. Although other books (e.g., Patricia A. Lather's Troubling the Angels; Dorie J. Gilbert and Ednita M. Wright's African American Women and HIV/AIDS: Critical Responses) address the issue of women and HIV/AIDS, most offer a sociopolitical perspective and are rather old. This is the most complete and up-to-date consumer guide available. Strongly recommended for all consumer health and most health sciences libraries.-Linda M.G. Katz, Drexel Univ.
