Good book... but needs some editing
on December 31, 2011
I have had type 1 diabetes for 16 of my 24 years of life, so this book has - so far - been great for giving me some peace of mind regarding my own health care. I love reading things that seem to have come right out of my own brain - I love knowing that I'm not alone or crazy for thinking or doing the things I do. While there isn't a ton of concrete advice in this quick read, it's great for getting other women's opinions and life stories and maybe even some tips for new things to try to manage your diabetes.
However, I was compelled to review the book simply because of the editing. There are some pretty blatant mistakes, including "you're" for "your," incorrect punctuation, poor flow, etc. I'm not even halfway through and it's getting distracting. I am just very surprised that the book was published with so many mistakes.
Even so, it's worth it for female diabetics to get and read this. I wish I'd had it when I was younger!
