    This book is little--only 124 pages--and little--only the size of an address book. I read it in a day; it's really well written in that it's easy to read, and interesting. A good portion of the book is devoted to HIV/AIDS prevention/transmition. In fact, it almost seems like it's more about HIV/AIDS than it is about condoms. Curiously, they chose not to discuss other STIs, such as the prevalence of herpes in the 80s, nor any other STIs. As well, there is only a brief mention of the increase of STI infection rates in developed countries. I found the sections on female condoms really interesting, especially when compared to the prevalent opinions held in the West toward male condoms. Just proves, it's all a matter of perception.
