Little "instructor" books for diabetics are almost all following a definite form. The task of teaching diabetic patients how to prepare their own menus is not an easy one; the danger of telling too much is as great as the danger of telling too little. In this book too little is told: the instructions for planning diets seem quite inadequate to reach more than the intelligent patients. Tables of equivalent food values, too, are lacking. The recipes are good.
