'The Diabetes Handbook' by Lundstrom & Rossini is a perfect blend of technical terminology and everyday language as well as a healthy balance of text and graphic organizers. It is a comprehensive guide for the newly diagnosed and a quick reference for veterans. There are no 'doom & gloom' nor 'bed of roses' philosophies. There is, however, practical information for healthy choices. (D.B.D.~Diabetes Patient)
