It is an incredible book, which deals in depth with every detail of diabetes care in young people and it never ducks any issues. --Dr Charles Fox, Consultant Physician at Northampton General Hospital
This book must be successful if it can run into a fifth edition and of course it is. When I was in a busy children s diabetes clinic I supplied this book for borrowing or purchase by many parents and they gained enormously by having it available. It is packed full of good practical advice to help parents and young people deal with their difficult condition successfully. --Dr Peter Swift, Consultant Paediatrician, Leicester Royal Infirmary
Its strengths lie in its ability to connect with the reader, ability to explain and make the reader understand medical knowledge in a clear and concise manner. A wide array of topics are covered, making this book a unique reference book for the patient. The illustrations are wonderful and yet simple in their approach and complement the text in a beautiful way. And further the book provides up-to-date and accurate information. This is an incredible book - both to patients (either children or adolescents or even adults) and to their carers and parents. Some of the complex medical thoughts and ideas are expressed in a simple way using a direct narrative style, accompanied by excellent yet simple illustrations and diagrams. I have recommended this book to patients and trainees in the past and will continue to recommend it in the future too! --BMA Medical Book Awards
