The famous pop star has been an AIDS advocate since founding the Elton John AIDS Foundation in 1992. Here he passionately describes his view of the crisis and the solutions he sees. This succinct audiobook is equal parts memoir, policy discussion, and polemic. As the title suggests, John ultimately concludes that the solution to the AIDS crisis is to end the bigotry impeding humane treatment and proper policy. John narrates the audiobook himself and brings his impassioned words to life. VERDICT Strongly recommended for John's fans and anyone seeking an easy, compelling introduction to the AIDS crisis. [The Little, Brown hc, published in July, was a New York Times best seller.—Ed.]—Mark Swails, Johnson Cty. Community Coll., Overland Park, KS

Elton John lends his voice to this heartrending account of the worldwide AIDS epidemic. From his eye-opening relationship with AIDS crusader Ryan White to frank confessions about his demons and addictions, John's performance perfectly captures the author's emotions, outrage, and determination to the cause. John maintains that compassion is key to solving the AIDS crisis—a problem exacerbated by ignorance and stigmatization. Moments of anger are handled with a sharp edge, while his rendering of deep emotion is never melodramatic. John's natural accent is a joy to listen to—although at times listeners might expect a breakout song from the musician. John's performance is a winning one and his message of love is convincing. A Little, Brown hardcover. (July)
