Education of the diabetic patient as a necessary part of the treatment of his condition is recognized as a vital part of the control of the disease. In this education, Dr. Joslin has had an important share, not only in the preparation of one of the first satisfactory guide books for the patient, but also in the contribution of numerous popular articles, which have brought home important facts to aid in the prevention as well as the care of this disease. The present book is written in a pleasing style, and will be found invaluable by any diabetic patient who is willing to live in such a manner as to prolong his life.
