"1980 is a fascinating read…that gets to the heart of one of the most frightening mysteries of modern medicine. Medical professionals will find it fascinating and the general public, compelling.”
A&U Magazine, America’s AIDS Magazine

"5 Stars". "1980: The Emergence of HIV is a wholly engrossing novel that brings the evolution of a long misunderstood and stigmatizing virus to the forefront. Delivered with an adept narrative that renders a sophisticated story with complex medical terms comfortable, David Cornish, MD writes with a skill reminiscent of Michael Crichton, blending factual events with fictional characters in a brilliant novel. The characters are all deeply developed and heavily layered, with just enough tension on each page to keep the level of suspense high despite knowing (to a certain degree) how the technical aspects of the story ends. I loved every page of this book and would award it a whole bucket of stars if that were possible."
