Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
After learning they were infected with HIV, lovers and AIDS activists Krandall Kraus (The President's Son, etc.) and Paul Borja decided to live out their remaining time with a renewed sense of purpose and focus. In their inspirational book, It's Never About What It's About: What We Learned About Living While Waiting to Die, they share their new life philosophy and their insights into our deepest emotions (for example, frustration and anger often mask deep-seated fear). For the reader intrigued by the relationship between the metaphysical and everyday experience, Kraus and Borja provide a provocative journey. (Alyson, $12.95 paper 208p ISBN 1-55583-571-6; Aug.) Chris Benguhe, who became a writer to help make the world a better place, celebrates "the most important things in life... people and the support and love we give each other" in Triumphs of the Heart: Miraculous True Stories of the Power of Love, with an introduction by George W. Bush. Though presented with forced drama, many of these 25 tales of real people's heroism, compassion and generosity are hopeful and inspiring. Agents, Becker & Mayer. (Berkley/Perigee, $12 paper 208p ISBN 0-399-52613-7; Aug.) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
KLIATT
Readers familiar with the popular Chicken Soup books will be interested in the stories found here. The author has collected 25 accounts depicting how strong the bonds of love are. There is quite a variety in this collection, ranging from the desperate to inspirational, poignant and amazing. However, the lead story is perhaps the most touching in that it demonstrates how love can be an unbroken circle. As remarkable and poignant as the stories are, they would be even more moving if there was a prologue or an epilogue included, as there is no transition between stories, making the readings somewhat abrupt. Nevertheless, there is great value in these stories, which successfully illustrate the tremendous power of love. KLIATT Codes: JSA—Recommended for junior and senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2000, Berkley/Perigee, 194p, 21cm, 00-029670, $12.00. Ages 13 to adult.

    I love it!!

    This book has not yet to come out. But I most likely will like the insporational stories it has to offer. One story is about a women that is good friends with my mother. It was a very sad story, but yet it seems to bring hope to each and every person.
