'All these factors would be enough to distinguish this book as a must for health professionals, both generalists as well as specialists in diabetes care. However the sound basis of the author's extensive practical knowledge and experience and her approach to the person as an individual whose quality of life must be considered adds a further important dimension. All in all an essential resource for hospital libraries and individual health professional's reference libraries.'
