Editorial Reviews

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.”

DiabetesDaily.com, 8/18/09
“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.”

ASweetLife.org, 12/17/2009
“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.” 

Midwest Book Review, November 2009
“Author Riva Greenberg—also a patient—separates myth from truth…A fine survey identifying the fifty most common popular diabetes myths and the realities.”

WebMD Conquering Diabetes blog, 2/2/10
“A book you should definitely get if you have diabetes…Provides a first-class tour of the diabetes facts that matter most. You may think you know a lot about diabetes, but I guarantee this book will take your understanding to new heights. The format is clever. Each of the 50 chapters opens with a myth…By organizing the book into such highly digestible little bites, each of which is a tasty morsel of highly seasoned information, the reader is treated to a gourmet self-education experience. Riva Greenberg’s information-packed book is nicely written, factually up-to-date, and relevant. Myths about nutrition, weight loss, exercise, medication, complications, and others are debunked and replaced with the information you need to life your best life. Riva is an excellent communicator, and she knows exactly which topics to highlight…An important contribution to patient education.”
 

John Koenig’sStuff I Like” Blog, 2/4/11 “Greenberg does a great job of sorting the truth from the fables.”
