Format: Paperback
This is unofficially the Best book that I have read on the subject of Diabetes. The format is clear, concise, and informative. The tips and hints in the margins make it interesting while being genuinely helpfull. The book is a comprehensive one spanning the history of the disease to the future of research for a cure. It addresses both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, explaining the differences as well as the ways the 2 types parallel. I recommend this book for anyone who lives with Diabetes and for those who love someone living with the disease. Warning! The size of this book may make the reader wary. However, because of the way it is formatted it is a quick read. You"ll want to keep it on hand as a reference.
