I must commend the depth of knowledge Nadia has been able to put in writing and the simplicity of it all. As a doctor, myself, I have learned and relearned a great deal and I have no doubt that this would be a useful book to persons living with diabetes and their family. Actually, I find that there are principles touched that relates to many more chronic illnesses as well. The order of the content was equally greatly done.
