To Dr. Joslin diabetes has always been a challenge. It is mainly this spirit of combat with and triumph over the disease running through his book that differentiates it from other manuals for the diabetic patient, and surely the new recruit will be cheered by the snapshots of previous patients "before and after." Everything the diabetic person needs to know is there, even if the epigrammatic style is a little tiring to the reader who goes straight through the book. Unfortunately, through the country in general there are still many physicians too ignorant or too lazy to take advantage of the newer knowledge of diabetes and many patients too apathetic to cooperate.
