Great book; but was sent the old (not latest) edition as ordered. Aug 20, 2008
Excellent book; very informative and "user friendly." However, I wish I had been shipped the latest edition instead of being "jipped" by receiving the old edition.
A Novice's Opinion Jul 19, 2008
I ordered this book the day the doctor told me to begin testing glucose numbers. It is a wonderful orientation of what is going on and what to expect as the months progress. My disposition was that if reading about diabetes and testing, testing, testing can make me do everything necessary to avoid full blown disease, I should try it. This approach and this book have worked so far. The book has taught me to be aggressive, and this is a huge help right now.
Best read for a newbie diabetic Jul 16, 2008
Written for the layperson who has been newly diagnosed with Type 2. This book has made all the difference in my attitude towards my diabetes. I believe your primary physican can actually mislead you where this book has explained what my options are and I feel great with the knowledge obtained thru reading this book. I highly recommend getting a copy if you have Type 2 diabetes.
