This book describes the rise of diabetes, both types, over the last century until it now has the status as a virtual pandemic. It discusses possible causes of the rise and medical approaches to the disease. As one of my daughters has suffered from type 1 diabetes since age 10, this topic is of particular interest to me. I found the book immensely readable, and both fascinating and troubling. My only frustration with it is that, in some of the statistics presented (not all, but some), it is not always clear whether the numbers apply to type 1 or 2, or both. Aside from that, it's a superb work on a topic that deserves far more attention.
