Other reviews of Sex At Risk

Overall, this book is competently written, carefully and logically presenting the evidence for Brody’s central argument about the risk of acquiring AIDS for heterosexuals living in industrialized countries...... 
As a plus, there are glints of sardonic humour throughout the book.....
Another positive aspect of the book is Brody’s careful discussion of methodological concerns in conducting sex research, particularly regarding the use of self-report..... 
A major strength of this book is Brody’s enthusiasm for challenging orthodox views. His succinct indictment of people who have conflated politics and science in setting AIDS policy over the past 15 years is important reading for anyone concerned about the application of scientific knowledge and the politicalization of sex research and education........

"A recommended book for all academic and research libraries" -- AIDS Book Review Journal, April 1999.

"...it was apparent that this was a serious, scholarly work with the intention of showing that penile-vaginal intercourse has been erroneously presumed to be higher risk for HIV transmission than is the case, a welcome and useful premise....Some fascinating details appear throughout......the author's inferences about the actual risk of HIV transmission through penile-vaginal transmission appear sound......I recommend this book as a source for enlightened debate".

"'Now No One is Safe from AIDS', boomed the cover of Life magazine over 10 years ago. Meanwhile, President Reagan's head of Health and Human Services said we faced a pandemic that will make the plague seem 'pale by comparison', while President Clinton's said that after AIDS has cut its swath, 'there may not be any of us left'. It was nonsense then, it is now, and it always will be. Stuart Brody has amassed an incredible amount of data that will bust through the wall of myths and slogans the AIDS alarmists have built".
