"In this book what I want to share with you is how to make your life better and easier. Regardless of whether you or someone you care about has diabetes or you are trying to do whatever you can to reduce the chances that you get diabetes, this book is for you. Rather than just giving you information, the goal of this book is to give you a new starting point for your life."
