Editorial Reviews

'The definitive history ... well written, highly readable.'

(London Review of Books)

"Scrupulously researched and compellingly readable ... I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone with an interest in diabetes, medical history, or medical scandal and gossip."

(British Medical Journal)

"The Discovery of Insulin deserves a place on the bookshelf alongside such eye-openers as James Watson's The Double Helix."

(Washington Post)
