Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Nancy Thackaberry
Each of these seven- to nine-chapter books begins with a single page profile of the title disease(s) that briefly answers five questions: Who gets it? How do you get it? What are the symptoms? How is it treated? How can it be prevented? Chapter one describes case scenarios and the many varieties of the diseases. AIDS briefly profiles "Magic" Johnson; Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) and Epilepsy both use unknown single-named characters. Chapter two covers historical background-Epilepsy includes a list of famous people with the disease, AIDS includes quotes from other books about AIDS, and STDs uses archeological data found worldwide. The remaining chapters clinically define the disease and add more detail to the diagnosis, symptoms, prevention, and treatments introduced in the profile. The last chapter foresees the future of the disease. Although STDs and AIDS are written by different authors, the content of both books are consistent with each other, current, and never preachy. Both authors broaden the scope of the title diseases by including a chapter that covers social implications. Economics, fears, legal issues, and prejudices are briefly introduced to show that the diseases are problems we all share and are not exclusive to the victims. The three books reviewed from this series are mature and complete, each in just over one hundred pages. The text of STDs is more lively than the other two books-one section is titled "Gonorrhea: Nothing to 'Clap' About"-but all are reader friendly. The series is ideal for any library serving secondary level students. Glossary. Index. Photos. Charts. Source Notes. Further Reading. Note: This review was written and published to address three titles-Epilepsy, Sexually Transmitted Diseases, and AIDS.
