From the reviews:
"This book addresses a number of controversies in diabetes pathophysiology and disease management. ... the topics were chosen to 'cover many of the issues that investigators, academics, and healthcare professionals have to deal with in their institutions and private practice.' ... the book will be mainly useful for practicing endocrinologists. The editors and authors are well respected experts in their fields. ... Finally, reading this book will enable physicians to understand new studies that will continue to emerge." (Ronald N Cohen, Doody's Review Service, April, 2008)
"The book is part of the Contemporary Endocrinology series from Humana Press, whose target audience is practicing endocrinologists and researchers. ... a collection of short reviews that are refreshing in their brevity without being overly simplistic, providing an excellent tool for lecturers facing inquisitive students, for practitioners quizzed by well-educated patients, and for diabetologists wishing to update their knowledge on the issues of the day." (Kristina I. Rother, The New England Journal of Medicine, July, 2008)
"This book explores 17 contemporary controversies related to diabetes ... . Each of the chapters is authored by experts in the field and will serve as a valuable resource for clinicians who care for patients with diabetes or those, including researchers, who wish to learn more about the current state of knowledge on a diverse group of diabetes-related topics."
