Reviews

From the reviews:

“The purpose is to provide up-to-date information about different types of insulin, insulin delivery devices, side effects, and goals of therapy. … It seems most appropriate for junior medical trainees and medical students. … Its small size makes it convenient to carry around. This will be very useful for medical practitioners looking for a quick and easy-to-read guide on insulin therapy.” (Olesya Krivospitskaya, Doody’s Book Reviews, June, 2013)
