Books on diabetes for patients began to appear at least as long ago as 1918, when Joslin's "A Diabetic Manual" was first printed. Ever since, a variety of books of this general character have appeared, carefully prepared by experts in different parts of the country and all designed to give practical information to diabetic patients and their families.
"Your Diabetes" is one of the latest in the series. It tells its story simply, clearly, and in a thoroughly understandable way. It promises to be successful, for, after an initial edition, a second and completely revised edition was necessary a few months later. It is worth reading.
