Reviews for Textbook of Diabetes

The undersigned immediately liked that each chapter begins with a summary in the form of key points on a colored background. It makes it possible to foam the text fairly quickly by reading the summary only. Tables and figures also have the same background, making the book clear and easy to read (direct translation) Journal of the Norwegian Medical Association, Sept 2017
