This is an excellent teaching manual recommended especially for children and their families, patients whose background is not adequate for the usual manual and for those with language difficulties. All diabetic patients will find the manual profitable, especially the dietary chapters.

Also to be recommended are the pictures and explanations of the different types of syringes and insulins.

Emergency situations are anticipated and all essentials are given simply, with care not to confuse or frighten the patient.
