This is a wonderful book and should be given to everyone who is diagnosed with diabetes II. The author is an experience RN, so she knows what she's talking about. The book is written in plain language, but doesn't talk down to the reader. I found it so reassuring for someone to tell me the facts of diabetes; I just wish someone had given me this book the first day, rather than finding it six months along.
This is specifically written for the newly diagnosed diabetic. It carefully, in layman's terms explains everything you have to do with regard to your own health. All the questions you don't have time to ask your doctor, or aren't even sure if they're worth discussing, are covered in this very comprehensive guide.
