A Five Star Review!
Today we learned that Diabetes Warrior received a Five Star Review from the team at Reader’s Favorite. Excerpts from the Readers Favorite review by Alice D.
“Diabetes Warrior is a splendid book offering excellent medical advice, and despite its small size... One can only wish that other books on chronic and threatening diseases be written in a similar manner for the general public. Diabetes Warrior is a little honey of a book that should be in many hands and pockets!” Check out the whole review here.


Excerpts from the Diabetes Mine review by
Allison Blass, Type-1 Diabetic
“Like Taming the Tiger, Diabetes Warrior is a pocket-sized book that packs a punch with all the diabetes info that someone newly diagnosed could possibly need. It’s mostly geared toward type 2, though people with type 1 will find it useful too. While Taming the Tiger was geared for those fresh out of the hospital, Diabetes Warrior takes on some additional must-need information in battling the “Diabetes Dragon.” That is, like in the Tiger edition, this entire book is written in metaphor, only this time, diabetes has transformed from a pouncing tiger to a fire-breathing dragon, and the reader — you — are the medieval knight who’s after it. Wil does an excellent job of breaking down some complex topics, like statins and ACE inhibitors. Each chapter averages just about 3-4 pages, though a bit more space is devoted to the chapter on diet and nutrition. Although the book is 165 pages, you can easily read it in an hour. It also makes a great reference book with its “Ask the King…” recommendations for your next doctor’s appointment, like making sure to ask about taking a daily aspirin and getting your annual dilated eye exam (hey, we said the book is fun…). With a healthy dose of irreverent humor, Wil’s brand of “entertaining education” will undoubtedly continue to help patients struggling with the task of managing their diabetes. We give this book the royal seal of approval — or at least that of the ‘Mine.”

Excerpts from the Scott's Diabetes review by
Scott Johnson, Type-1 Diabetic
“There are some talented authors that are simply a pleasure to read. William “Lee” Dubois is one such author. Wil has many gifts, and one that we are lucky to witness is his ability to understand some very complicated aspects of diabetes and then translate it into easily understood “normal people talk”. Not only can he translate, but he does it in an entertaining way. He makes it fun to learn about taking care of your diabetes. It is another short, small, “pocket” book. Something you can easily read in an afternoon, and something you can quickly refer back to as needed. Striking a perfect balance between staying general enough to not overwhelm you and getting detailed enough to actually educate you and motivate you, this book is perfect for anyone living with diabetes. Those that have been recently diagnosed, start with the Tiger book and follow up with this one. Veterans of diabetes – you’ll learn a lot from both books, in either order.”
