This slim book was first published in 1979 and this is its third edition. It is squarely aimed at the consumer who has an interest in sexually transmitted infections (STIs) — including HIV infection — and attempts to give “the facts” about these infections while dispelling myths and giving practical advice about diagnoses and treatments. The information presented is succinct and generally up to date, although the section on HIV and its treatments is already a little dated given the incredibly rapid changes that occur in this dynamic field of medicine.
