The parent of two diabetic children, Saunders wrote the book ``as both an introduction to the medical, psychosocial, and common sense aspects of diabetes and as a daily reference.'' With real understanding, it covers every aspect of the disease as encountered by child and parents. Part 1 details the psychological aspects of dealing with the diagnosis. Part 2 explains medical and social management, with excellent advice on insulin dosage management and its relation to diet. There is advice on complications, travel, eating out, etc. Helpful appendixes include details of the American Diabetes Association food exchange system.
