Editorial Reviews

Too Cool
Absolutely the best book I have ever read! Whether you have HIV or know someone who does simply is not the reason to buy and read this book. EVERYONE should buy this book. HIV/AIDS affects each and everyone of us on some level. This pandemic has been a tragedy against humanity and we must become conscious of the truth or else we will continue to get sick and die. The fictional aspects of this book (name-changes, events etc) are brilliant in that this book would not have been published otherwise.

After reading this book, I just wanted to yell out to all the world to Please, WAKE UP! Stephen Davis! You wrote an extaordinary book that once opened, cannot be put down! This book is a Powerful Truth placed in the context of a courtroom drama that kept my attention from first page to last! Everyone has always felt in their gut that there was something that just was not quite right with HIV and AIDS. You have shown us exactly what was wrong: ALL of it, from beginning to end.
D.D. Steele
I enjoyed the book. It read like a cross between a John Grisham legal thriller and an informative scientific treatise on AIDS. One of the things that gives great plausibility to this novel is the scientific history of AZT -- the primary drug used to treat AIDS patients from 1987-1996. In any event, Davis has provided a real page-turner, that shows some of the dark side, greed and incompetence that has permeated AIDS science since its inception 25 years ago. I definitely recommend it.
Dr. Ray Goddard
Mr. Davis creates an intelligent and thoroughly riveting story-line that combines the drama of a courtroom with the "fictional" account of government cover-up with big Pharma's true motives. Although it was difficult to put down the book after I started it, I found myself leaving from time to time to go online and research Davis' research myself. This lead to an entire shift in my perspective about what really goes on behind the scenes and how our perceptions are continually being manipulated.

Six months ago, I was one of those who believed that HIV equals AIDS - the story we've all been told for thirty years by the media and the so-called medical and scientific experts. Then a friend introduced me to an article in Harper's Magazine and challenged me on some of the scientific assumptions, and started trying to educate me about the actual facts of the matter. It wasn't until I read Davis's book that I really got it. Davis has taken some very complex concepts and made them so simple.

Meet the Author

In his sixty-five years, Stephen Davis has been (in chronological order) one of the co-creators of "Up With People," a Physician’s Assistant in the U.S. Army (Vietnam vet), a commercial airline pilot, an Arizona State Senator, an Aide to L. Ron Hubbard in the Church of Scientology, President of an international management consulting firm (WISE), Director of Development and professor at Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic, computer software designer, horse whisperer, and captain of a whale and dolphin research ship.He is the author of a number of books and won the George Washington Medal of Honor from Freedoms Foundation for his published article, "The Government Versus the Economy."In his own words…Like you, and many others, I’ve spent a lot of time in my life trying to find answers to some very simple questions:Who am I?Where did I come from?How did I get here?What am I doing here?Why is my life the way it is?My personal quest began at age nineteen when I went to work with Edgar Cayce’s son at the Association for Research and Enlightenment in Virginia Beach. I took the opportunity to study as many of Cayce’s “readings” as I could from their original transcripts.From there I went deeper into parapsychological and psychic research, meeting and talking with such notables (at the time) as Dr. J.B. Rhine, who founded the first parapsychology lab at Duke University; Ruth Montgomery ("A Search for Truth"); and Lynn Schroeder and Sheila Ostrander ("Psychic Discoveries Behind the Iron Curtain"). By the time I reached my twenty-fifth birthday, I owned a theosophical library of several thousand books.In the next decade I would become a personal “Aide” to L. Ron Hubbard in the Church of Scientology and achieve “OT6” status.By the time I turned forty-five, I had also dabbled in "A Course in Miracles," Urantia, Eckankar, channeling, Kundalini Yoga, meditation, Numerology, astrology, Tai Chi, Focusing, and Rosicrucianism.I read all the “Seth” books, along with Walsch's "Conversations with God" and Sitchin’s "Earth Chronicles." I attended numerous self-help seminars and workshops, tried "The Secret," listened to Abraham, watched "What the Bleep Do We Know," and learned everything I could from Peter Marshall, John Bradshaw, Sai Baba, Krishnamurti, Deepak Chopra, Eckart Tolle, and others.I even studied conventional religions — Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, etc. — and at one time planned on becoming an Episcopal priest.In the end I still couldn’t find a satisfactory answer to even one of my simple questions — at least not an answer that worked well enough for me and everyone else to create a happy and fulfilling life on a continuous and daily basis.But I knew there had to be some grain of truth in most of these spiritual philosophies — sometimes well hidden and hard to get at, but some truth none the less. Yet no single philosophy or practice or technique worked for very long, or satisfied me, or produced the kind of life I longed for or believed was possible. Something was just a little “off” in every one of them that seemed like it wasn’t really true, and made both the “old-age” and “new-age” theories come up short.So I kept searching, putting together a giant jigsaw puzzle, using pieces from everything I had learned along this spiritual journey; and I began to scout a new path toward serenity of being. I now have those answers I so desperately needed and wanted, and the jigsaw puzzle is virtually finished. The result is my latest book, "Butterflies Are Free To Fly: A New and Radical Approach to Spiritual Evolution."

I'm usually the first to TP the pharmaceutical industry and the government's house but in this case this book is way off track. The first way he's wrong is in his assessment of how we diagnose HIV. We have to search for anti-bodies because viruses are too small. 100 times smaller than bacteria. They can only be seen through an electron microscope. Think of searching something the size of Lake Erie one cubic yard at a time small. Viruses are so small that scientists still argue on whether or not they can be classified as living. So we search for the body's immune response to it. It's faster and doesn't cost 1 million dollars per test. Anti-bodies are created in response to an invader, not the successful eradication of an invader. He was wrong again. That happens when you don't actually talk to an immunologist when you write his part. Also AZT was originally a viral inhibitor. They experimented with it back when a working hypothesis was that cancer was caused by viruses. It was never like modern chemo drugs that depend on controlled doses of poison that weaken the body. Yes there are side effects and they are bad, but not the ones your thinking of. Further more retro viruses are unstable. Not really a problem for it when it can invade a cell and produce 1 trillion copies a pop. This is a problem for us because if one accidental mistake produces drug resistance, it can produce a few more million copies that promote that resistance. Even if it makes a lot of mistakes along the way. Because there was only one drug at the time they prescribed it at a higher dose because it was the only thing there was. Now we have a cocktail that can nail the virus multiple ways even if evolves resistance to one. Talk to your doctor, go to web md look at Wikipedia even. Grab a book about viruses and read yourself. South Africa adopted this policy of AIDS denialism and it killed thousands of people. Oh yeah, the writing. Fair writing skill really he knows how to write about characters, but the whole thing is so David vs. Goliath cliched it's not funny. His character is a Mary Sue trope. He's writing with a political agenda and character development is riding in the backseat.

This has been one of the most informative books I have ever read. I lost two brother to AIDS. This book made me question many things proceding their death. I googled some of the characters in this book as well as the drug company involved. Inspite of the fact that the book is being protrayed as frictional is just to protect the innocent. I strongly recommend this book. To the reader, I suggest that you have an open mind, because if you ever had losts any love one to AIDS, it will piss you off.

Everyone in the world needs to read this book. Checked references and they are all there.

I only downloaded this book because it was free and had an interesting title. I never expected to get the education I received. Never would I have expected to be awakened to the possibility that such a large crime could be committed right under our noses. Read the book. Check the references. It will change your perspective on more than just the Aids epidemic. Government, media, statistics, history, etc. Thank you for opening my eyes!

The storyline in this novel is ok, but it lacks polish. The biggest problem with it is that it is written in the present tense (unusual) with lapses (a paragraph or line here and there for no apparent reason) into the past tense. It seems to lack a specific voice. In short, this book reads like a draft of something that could be better with more editing.

I enjoyed the book. It read like a cross between a John Grisham legal thriller and an informative scientific treatise on AIDS. One of the things that gives great plausibility to this novel is the scientific history of AZT -- the primary drug used to treat AIDS patients from 1987-1996. In short, AZT is highly toxic cancer chemotherapy. When the AIDS experts utterly failed to develop a vaccine, they panicked, floundered and turned to AZT as a Plan B. The problem, though, is that like most cancer chemo, AZT, kills white bloods leading to immune deficiency. Indeed, the first double-blind study of AZT, showed that one of the major hematological abnormalities (ie, deadly side effects) was leukopenia -- a decrease in white blood cells. So, if HIV purports to kill white blood cells, Why would anyone take a toxic drug, that also kills white blood cells? Wouldn't this compound the problem, rather than ameliorating it? In any event, Davis has provided a real page-turner, that shows some of the dark side, greed and incompetence that has permeated AIDS science since its inception 25 years ago. I definitely recommend it.

I have suspected for years that our government needs an overhaul. As they say "money talks. There is coruption running rampant. We need to see with our eyes and hear with our ears. I applaud this author. A fantastic book. It is an eye opener to all. Read it. Rate it.

I began reading this book without the pretense of accepting it as factual or purely fiction; only viewing it as entertaining. By the end of the book, I find myself very open to considering the possibilities not only of the well supported arguments made by the author regarding AIDS, but other potential scenarios in which the public is being deceived by those with the money and subsequent power. Though I do tend to be a bit of a conspiracy theorist. ;-) Excellent and informative book. Definitely food for thougjt.

This book was a really interesting read and wondered while reading if it wasn't a true story vs. being fiction. Made a lot of sense and how Pharmacy Companies and Gov't could control life and death.

Keep an open mind. Look up the main scientists. Check the acts yourself. What a thought provoking book. Is it possible? The government cover yet another mess up?. I believe.

I really like the idea of people doing their own research and not relying on the what the government or media tells them. This book depicts a great reason not to, although, the story itself is fiction, there is a clear message to be taken. I was not intrested in reading it to discredit the author's facts, I read it for what it is a work of fiction based in the court room.

You will not want to put it down and it will stay with you long after you read it. A novel with some truth but the question is how much.

I am not sure why I got this book. It isn't the type of book I would normally read, but once I started, I could not put it down! While the story is fiction, the author claims that it's based on fact. Facts that I was shocked to read about.
