The distinctive feature of this diabetic manual is that it includes, in addition to treatment of the usual subjects, some excellent international recipes.

The short chapter on juvenile diabetes recognizes the increased need for protein and carbohydrate in the child's diet and mentions the difficulties arising in adolescence. A sample diet and school luncheon are shown.

Also of pediatric interest are the chapters on "Marriage in Diabetes" and "Diabetes in Pregnancy." The future mate should always be informed of the presence of diabetes. A brief discussion of the problems of the newborn infants of diabetic mothers is especially interesting because of the controversy over the abnormalities and treatment of these babies.
