A deeply personal account of Elton John's life during the era of AIDS and an inspiring call to action.

In the 1980s, Elton John saw friend after friend, loved one after loved one, perish needlessly from AIDS. He befriended Ryan White, a young Indiana boy ostracized because of his HIV infection. Ryan's inspiring life and devastating death led Elton to two realizations: His own life was a mess. And he had to do something to help stop the AIDS crisis.

Since then, Elton has dedicated himself to overcoming the plague and the stigma of AIDS. The Elton John AIDS Foundation has raised and donated $275 million to date to fighting the disease worldwide. Love Is the Cure includes stories of Elton's close friendships with Ryan White, Freddie Mercury, Princess Diana, Elizabeth Taylor, and others, and the story of the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

Sales of Love Is the Cure benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "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.
