From the reviews:
"This book provides a good overview of all the latest developments in the field. ... there is enough high-quality information here to help the general diabetologist deal with the principles in the normal clinic setting. ... This book will help clinicians help those people with diabetes who want to play sport and even for some like me, achieve the highest level of sporting success."
