review 1: While I adore Mary Tyler Moore and all the great work she has done regarding diabetes awareness, I like her best when she is acting. The writing isn’t bad per se, but there are better books out there about diabetes management. This book is a sort of mash-up of memoir/diabetes help-book. I just don’t think it works 100%.

Interesting reading for other diabetics, not much for those who don't understand.
Not what I was expecting. Very good info on diabetes. Did like her honesty.
A bit boring in parts, but very good about the diabetic aspects.
