Tinderbox is Coming March 5

At long last, the book that I have co-authored with epidemiologist Daniel Halperin is coming out on March 5. Tinderbox: How the West Sparked the AIDS Epidemic and How the World Can Finally Overcome It, published by The Penguin Press, is printed and on its way to book stores. Watch this space for details...


  1. I am listening you interview on NPR. It is amazing to see how you passionately try to convince that HIV is from Africa. If HIV is not a disease, it would be tracked to "May flower" ship or somewhere out of Africa. It is not also from Homosexuals in Africa, not from Homos in Western, right! what a fair assessment.

  2. Bravo work! A great elucidation of how AIDS was born when African's and the West's lifestyle's collided. I appreciate the depth of your research, and vast analysis of how you derived to this piece. Many views as to where the virus originated have floated around for decades, but your profound work was the most credible in my view.
