“Managing [diabetes] can be daunting. The co-authors of this practical, interactive workbook — Susan Weiner, a dietitian, and Leslie Josel, a professional organizer — can help.

"I think that this book is an excellent read for anyone with any type of diabetes who is looking to find a way to make life less chaotic and frenetic. There are some excellent tips in this book for not just how to organize in terms of space or routines, but apps that you can use for both iPhone and Android based phones to help manage your diabetes, and tips on how to incorporate some of those necessary tasks to live a healthy life with diabetes into your daily life, and do it without added worry. I highly recommend this book, and think that it is an excellent addition to my diabetes library."

"Not surprisingly, the book is well organized, even to the extent of having a built-in bookmark. And, the authors also offer ideas from many other diabetes experts who understand the challenges best- they all have diabetes. I’ll just encourage you to grab a copy for yourself, and see if the tips and guidance don’t make your diabetes management activities more efficient, and more successful."

“Anyone with diabetes could benefit from reading and using this book, but it is especially helpful for those who struggle in managing their diabetes care from handling medications, food, cooking, and shopping to remembering what to do, when to do it, and who to see for diabetes care. This book also would be great for parents of children who have diabetes. The author walks a person through being diagnosed to managing the diabetes on a daily basis and throughout life. They have created step-by-step guides, anticipating the needs of those who have diabetes, offering practical suggestions, and providing very detailed suggestions for those taking insulin, who may have more “stuff” to organize. The 12 chapters are packed with helpful guidelines and suggestions. The authors have stepped back to examine how good organization can help people with diabetes manage their disease. This is a wonderful helpful guide for everyday living, work, school, and traveling in one clearly written book.”
