it was ok
Read in August, 2009

For such an engaging personality, she's not the most engaging writer. I really wanted to like this, but somehow it failed to connect with me. I'd hoped for more personal anecdotes in the realities of dealing with this disease we share, but somehow the immediacy got lost amid the endless tangents and parenthetical asides. For someone who nearly lost a toe and whose vision has been seriously compromised by diabetes, I would have expected more oomph to her feelings about it all. True, she has a position to maintain, but I could've done without all the truisms and preaching. I get enough of that at the doctor's office and from every ADA publication I get!
