Covering everything from explaining what exactly diabetes is to learning how to manage it at different life stages, I felt much more knowledgeable about this disease after reading this book. I also felt that it was easy to understand and it didn’t go over my head. There are tons of pictures and side notes…I really respect that she had a large number of experts, including medical doctors, in the field of diabetes review her book…..[Karen Graham] scored really big points with me….I truly believe that this comprehensive guide will make a difference in the lives of people who have diabetes …I highly recommend Karen Graham’s [book] to anyone who has diabetes or knows someone with diabetes.

Must-have book for those with diabetes…Possibly this is the most complete coverage and explanation for Type 2 diabetes for the lay person I have ever seen…Don’t let the size deter you (it’s more than 400 pages). This book is not overweight, it is simply full of useful information. The book is divided into sections for easy reference…Questions are anticipated and answered.

The ultimate diabetes primer.
