This is the best book I have ever read on diabetes. I wish it had been published when I was pregnant with my children. As a type one diabetic, it is very hard to find books that agree with a diabetics view on being diabetic. So many authors who write diabetic books have never walked a mile in our shoes. This author did an excellent job of explaining how each diabetic is different and how what may work for one may not work for another. I enjoyed that she used quotes from several people so that you could get several perspectives. I actually learned some things I didn't know and found the book very helpful even though I am not expecting at this time. Highly Recommended Reading!!
