Doody's Book Reviews
"A complementary approach to the prevention of the spread of HIV focuses directly on the potential sources of infection. ... Positive Prevention articulates this complementary approach and describes its empirical basis. ... This book is a 'must read' for those interested in the prevention of HIV transmission. It has enough breadth to provide a general overview of 'prevention with positives' and enough detail to satisfy and educate those already working in this area. Clinicians ... will find this book valuable." (Gary Marks, New England Journal of Medicine, Issue 4, August, 2005)
"Kalichman, a University of Connecticut psychologist and researcher ... has edited a timely collection of contributions from international scholars in the field of HIV/AIDS prevention. ... The straightforward prose helps condense the translation of complicated technical research data into understandable information. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-level graduate students, researchers, and professionals." (P. Wermager, CHOICE, Vol. 43 (1), September, 2005)
