The book is written throughout in the "popular science" style which makes it easy to read but it is well researched and referenced. There is more science than I was expecting at the beginning of the book, but this is really about explaining what high blood sugar is doing to your body. It's easy enough to skip over these sections but I'd recommend you not to. To the reviewer who criticised the book on the grounds that he just wanted to be told what to eat, the answer is, eat a low carbohydrate diet. That means, no sugar, no white bread, no coffee. Good chocolate is okay though. Patrick Holford has a book on that, as well as a nice cookbook.
If you are a type 1 diabetic, I'd suggest you also read Richard Bernstein's Diabetes Solution which contains a lot of practical information for caring for diabetes, as well as more detailed science.
Both books advocate a low carbohydrate diet as the means to normalising blood sugars. It's scandalous that the medical establishment still does not do the same.
The book is probably a little longer than it needs to be, but nevertheless I'm giving it 5 stars for presenting a complex subject in an accessible way.
If you go for this book -I also suggest reading Zoe Harcombe's," Why do you over eat" and/ or "Stop counting calories" and Blood sugar 101 by Jenny Ruhl for a more balanced perspective.
There's so much one can do, to prevent diabetes, or slow it down - without resorting to meds.
Patrick Holford is a fantastic clinical nutritionist, and writes in a clear articulate no nonsense style.
I recommend unreservedly
