    Good characterization, weak plot

    The book is very good for someone trying to understand and live with Type 2 diabetes. The explanations are simple and clear, which is not a small matter if you're new to the illness and already anxious. This book penetrates the fear that highly technical language can instill in you at these times. Reading it is like talking with an old and caring friend. It tells you what you need to know and what to do without a bit of blaming, shaming, or condescending. There's a companion workbook which takes what the main book recommends and turns it into practical, down-to-earth activities, like exercises, recipes, and journal pages. I recommend it highly. I have one reservation: the plot not a page-turner. Frankly, nothing much happens and it won't keep you awake.

    Common sense approach to weight loss

    I am very pleased with this book, which is more of a diabetes lifestyle guide than an actual calorie-counting diet plan. Very straightforward and easy to read and follow, it provides lots of helpful background information on living with Type II Diabetes. There is a two-week quick-start plan to get you going, and helpful suggestions to keep you on track after that. Instead of measuring and weighing portions, the book suggests great ways to estimate serving sizes (for example, 1 cup of broccoli = the size of a baseball). I actually have the condition known as pre-diabetes, and this book addresses that, as well. Breaking bad habits and instilling new healthful ones is what the approach is all about, and I am hopeful that I will be able to avoid an eventual diagnosis of diabetes. Also, I am glad that I ordered the book through Barnes & Noble instead of online via Mayo Clinic; I saved a lot that way, as a B&N member.

    THIS IS NOT A COOKBOOK!! I feel that the book would by an excellent source for someone who has just learned they had type 2. I was intrerested in recipes to broaden my diet while still adhereing to all the principles set up in this book. Don't buy it if you are looking for recipes.

    Excellent Suggestion!

    This book was highly recommended to me by one of my doctors. I wasn't sure I wanted "another" diet book. The diet aspect of this book didn't necessarily teach me anything I didn't already know. It was the diabetes side of this book. Even though I have been living with diabetes for 10 years this book made what I already knew so much clearer. This book was an excellent suggestion.
