Excerpts from the DiabetesDaily review by
David Edelman, Type-3 Diabetic
“Taming the Tiger: Your first year with Diabetes is an antidote to all-encompassing diabetes guides. Author William "Lee" Dubois has whittled his far-reaching knowledge down to the bare essentials. This book contains exactly what you need to get started with diabetes - and nothing more.”

“This book is funny, informative and a quick read . . . I think this book should be required reading for everyone who's just been told they have diabetes. The information is enough to get you started on the right road. Wil doesn't hold anything back, but he provides you with a great set of rules for starting your life with diabetes.”

Excerpts from the Diabetes Mine review by
Amy Tenderich, Type-1 Diabetic
“William ‘Lee’ Dubois is at it again, creating another super-handy pocket guide for dealing with the Big D. This one is called Taming the Tiger: Your First Year with Diabetes. And it rocks! Er, roars, if you will… I wish I wrote this book (which I suppose is the ultimate compliment). It is frank and funny, and doesn’t mess around; there’s a whole section titled ‘take your damn meds.’As Wil says, this book is ‘just the basics,’ but done well, and with a great sense of humor. It’s ideal for freshly diagnosed Type 2s who need a both a dose of empathy and a kick in the pants. The book takes only about an hour to read. For many, possibly the best-spent hour of their lives.”
