Smartly abridged and read with the formality appropriate to a medical topic, this is an excellent audio for people newly diagnosed with Type 2 (non-insulin- dependent) diabetes. Spelling out the eating modifications and other lifestyle changes that the disorder typically requires, the author offers many medical details without sounding clinical. This should be a real plus for people who are not used to focusing so intensely on their health or who see the diagnosis as a stigma or punishment. As empowering as it is intelligent, thanks to the quiet optimism of Kate Reading's narration, the program should be encouraging for people confronting this type of challenge for the first time.
