Review by Library Journal (2011-02-15)

Many books explain the dos and don'ts of diabetes. Crowe, an educator and 37-year veteran of type 1 diabetes, and Stachowiak (The Multiple Sclerosis Manifesto) strive to provide information that enables diabetics to gain a healthy perspective in managing daily tasks and accepting the inevitable setbacks that occur in the course of the disease. They emphasize that each person is accountable for his or her lifestyle but shouldn't feel guilty when, despite best efforts, complications arise.

Self-efficacy and health literacy, both critical elements in managing chronic conditions, are well explained with concrete advice on ways to improve. One should become an expert on the disease through research, understanding the vocabulary, and asking probing questions of health-care providers. Tips on ensuring good medical care through record keeping and obtaining accurate health information are excellent. Cheat sheets for better communication are also included.

Verdict: Crowe and Stachowiak explain the most important self-management skills for dealing with any chronic illness. A realistic, positive, and assertive attitude combined with solid health information is the best defense in managing one's optimal health. Their well-written, tangible, and achievable advice is outstanding. An essential title for diabetes patients, their families, and health-care workers.
