bout Diabetes warrior: Be your own knight in shining armor
William “Lee” Dubois has done it again! Following up his wildly popular
first-year diabetes pocket survival guide Taming the Tiger: Your first year with diabetes,
with a brand new pocket survival guide that’ll take you to the next level.
There’s a lot to learn about taking care of yourself and your diabetes
after the first year, but why not have fun doing it? This sequel to Taming the
Tiger packs the fundamentals of what you need to know going forward into a small,
fun, funny, and quick read. Using the analogy of a medieval suit of armor,
Lee leads us through the maze of medications, actions, and behaviors that make up
our modern “armor” against diabetes…. Dragons?
Well, you can’t very well talk about knights and armor without
talking about dragons, now can you? So join us for this humorous
romp through diabetes education and find out why LDL Cholesterol
is the Evil Wizard, where you should park your steed at Wal-Mart,
what to eat at the Round Table, why you should always wear your sabatons, and much, much more.
Diabetes Warrior is the same pocketable 3 1/8 inches by 4 3/4 inches as the
multi-award-winning Tiger book is, but packs about half again as many pages. After all, Lee had more
ground to cover. This isn’t just a year. This is the rest of your life. Not to
worry, Diabetes Warrior will still slip right into your pocket
without stretching the seams! Like it’s predecessor, it’s a “perfect” bound paperback.
