From the Publisher
Library Journal online Xpress review, 7/24/09
“[Riva Greenberg] is singularly well placed to help those with diabetes separate the wheat from the chaff in terms of the validity of the plethora of available information. This is an extremely readable one-stop information spot for diabetes management, written by a patient-expert with the support of a huge team of contributing experts.”

“I read about diabetes day and night, yet I still found this book illuminating. There are many persistent and widely believed myths about diabetes. It's important to dispel them, especially at the beginning, to save those with diabetes from devastating mistakes. 50 Diabetes Myths That Can Ruin Your Life accomplishes this goal in an easy-to-browse fashion.”

“In clear, straightforward and reassuring language, the truth about what diabetes is and what power [we] have to control it…Greenberg is excellent at explaining both why it’s important to pay attention to and actively manage your diabetes, and why, if you do so, diabetes will not ruin your life…Greenberg’s book is also a great resource to educate well-meaning family and friends.”
