Book Description

Ripped from the headlines of today's news, "Are You Positive?" is a fictitious courtroom drama in the style of John Grisham.

26-year-old Tyree Johnson stands accused of first degree murder in a prominent South Carolina courtroom. But his murder weapon is not a gun or a knife; in fact, there was no violent crime at all. His “victim,” Beth Ann Brooks, dated Tyree for a few months, and they made love more than once. However, Tyree Johnson had been diagnosed HIV-Positive, and the prosecution claims that Beth Ann Brooks was infected with HIV by Tyree and died some months later.

The defense, however, claims there is reasonable doubt that Tyree’s HIV diagnosis was wrong – that, according to numerous scientific studies, the so-called “HIV tests” are fraught with errors, and have been ever since their inventor, Dr. Robert Gallo, lied on his patent application. Furthermore, Tyree’s lawyer argues that there is no scientific evidence that HIV is transmitted by heterosexual intercourse, and that Tyree’s girlfriend died from taking lethal anti-retroviral drugs rather than from any HIV/AIDS-related illness.

Based on more than 500 actual scientific studies and references, the author claims that every word of sworn testimony is true and verifiable.

"Are You Positive?" raises serious questions about whether anyone has ever been properly diagnosed as HIV-Positive, and whether most AIDS victims are dying from the side-effects of the HIV medications prescribed by their doctors – all in a spell-binding novel.

You be the judge.

3.0 out of 5 stars Read this, then do your own research 18 Sept. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First of all, this is a work of fiction. The story is based around a courtroom drama in the USA where a young man is accused of murder, by infecting a young woman with HIV, after which she dies. The story itself is well written and in many cases quite compelling. The author puts a great deal of effort into providing what he indicates is accepted research into HIV / AIDS.

I was not particularly aware of AIDS denialism, and this book has helped make me much more aware of the controversy. Denialists seem to fall into one of 2 camps; politically or theologically motivated. Stephen Davis is a former Scientologist which I would suggest indicates where he stands. Their arguments seem to be composed of selectively choosing to believe some research, whilst ignoring much else; and I found that in almost all the cases referred to in the book, the specific research projects were completely discredited following peer review. Many of the arguments are based on incorrect information, and statements are put forward as valid scientific evidence, when in fact they are actually only viewpoints.

I fully support the concept of questioning facts and beliefs; and would argue that people should be free to put forward their own ideas. However, it worries me that some people might read this book and base their views on HIV / AIDS on what they read here. There are many valid places to get a balanced and objective point of view; this is not one of them.

I was torn between giving this book 4 stars for the quality of the writing, or dropping it to 3 stars as it is poor science dressed up; in the end, I decided on the latter. By all means read it, and think about the arguments; then do some research yourself on the points raised, and you'll be armed with a better understanding of the issues.

4.0 out of 5 stars Are you positive? 23 May 2011
By Bunny
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was a difficult one to read as it contained far too much medical jargon. The only reason I managed to get to the end of the book and gave it an overall 4 stars was the powerful underpinning message of the damage that can be done by choosing to be ignorant. As someone whose life hasn't been blighted by Aids I have got no idea whatsoever as to truth or otherwise of the key elements of this book as I've never need to seek answers to such questions. Nevertheless it painted a grim picture of what it would mean for those unfortunate enough to be told "you have Aids".

4.0 out of 5 stars True or untrue? 2 Sept. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Having never paid much interest to HIV and AIDS I simply chose to read this book as court room drama and medical drama are two of my favourite reading topics. The book shocks me to the core because if all it contains is true, I am at a loss to understand why all this detailed information has not been given full global attention!!! If the book is not true fact, then I feel the publishers should be ashamed of themselves. When time permits, I intend to become much wiser on this issue. Sadly, I have been one of those members of the public who have not paid the issue attention as it, fortunately, has not affected my loved ones or me. I have full knowledge on such things as cancer and arthritis as these do affect my family. Regrettably we do live within our own cocoons. A well written book that is worthy of the time to read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW 31 July 2011
By spookie
Format:Kindle Edition
I bought this book assuming it was "just" a story. I am not HIV Positive and to my knowledge do not know anyone who is so this is not a subject close to my heart. I was so amazed at what I was reading I convinced myself that it was a very clever work of fiction until I got my laptop out and googled a lot of the stuff quoted in this book. It is very scary stuff and totally outrageous if even half of it is true. I spent as much time saying Oh my God, listen to this and reading paragraphs out to friends and family as as I did reading the book. This is compelling stuff but must be totally mindblowing to those unfortunate enough to have HIV or to loved ones that have it or who have already died of aids! This book should be compsulsory reading, it might make the world a more tolerant place. Well done Stephen Davis brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book! 22 Jan. 2011
By Sue
Format:Kindle Edition
This is an excellent book, very well written and thought provoking. If the facts are correct regarding HIV testing then there are some very big questions that need to be answered by the medical profession.

1.0 out of 5 stars dangerous 22 Mar. 2012
By grumpya
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is written from a viewpoint of denying heterosexual aids exists, the story is a clever way of passing the so called "facts" on, but apart from being heavy in medical jargon, if you have ever watched a heterosexual non drug using friend die from aids in the days before the drugs (I have) then you will find this book heartily sickening & a dangerous piece of literature aimed at a generation who are too young to have been there when aids was a problem in the west. I HATED THIS BOOK

5.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing..... 5 Mar. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This story echoes my own misunderstandings as to why HIV positive should mean anything other than positive antibodies. A very believable trial transcript which really makes one question the concept of medications in these cases..........

5.0 out of 5 stars A good read 6 Nov. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Although I sometimes found this book difficult to read because of all the medical jargon, it was very thought provoking and informative. It is sometimes hard to remember that this is a work of FICTION. The arguements are very well presented, but I'm sure there is a book out there that will give the totally opposite viewpoint just as effectively. This is the type of book that will make you want to do some more research on the subject of HIV and Aids. I would highly recommend this book with the proviso that you don't take the author's word as gospel. Read it, research it and then make up your own mind. At the back of the book is a section where you can say whether you find the defendant guilty or not guilty - very interesting result!
