    In the 1980s, Elton John saw friend after friend, loved one after loved one, perish needlessly from AIDS. In the midst of the plague, he befriended Ryan White, a young Indiana boy ostracized by his town and his school because of the HIV infection he had contracted from a blood transfusion. Ryan's inspiring life and devastating death led Elton to two realizations: His own life was a mess. And he had to do something to help stop the AIDS crisis. Since then, Elton has dedicated himself to overcoming the plague.

    Where does Love Is the Cure rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the best books I have heard in a long time. I knew that Elton John was involved in the AIDS fight, but I had no idea how much the foundation has achieved since its inception. Elton chronicles the history of not only the foundation but the fight against AIDS as well. It is a virtual primer on the fight and the efforts (for and against) to end this virus once and for all.

    His account is clear, honest, perceptive, and cuts through the political nonsense that has surrounded the AIDS crisis.

    If you want some plain and simple facts, get the book. He knows what he is talking about and has worked tirelessly to help end AIDS.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Love Is the Cure?

    I liked how honest he was in the book. His honesty extends not only to others who did nothing to fight AIDS, but also to himself and how he did not act when he could have. After looking into his foundation some more, I think he has done a brilliant job making up for lost time.
