The guide to living with HIV infection : developed at the Johns Hopkins AIDS Cli
Bartlett, John G.
This is the Johns Hopkins Clinic's guide for people who are at all stages of HIV/AIDS disease. It's a broad overview of all the medical aspects of HIV care, the legal aspects of living with the virus, and even aspects of individual states' programs and policies. It was invaluable to me when I was newly diagnosed, and it's still a handy reference tool for me.

And the band played on : politics, people, and the aids epidemic
Shilts, Randy
Shilts' book is the definitive story of the early years of the AIDS epidemic in the United States. It's been accused of being biased and one-sided, but it's a heartfelt, honest look at the pandemic from someone who was there. A must-read for anyone who's interested in the history of HIV and AIDS in America.
