“I cannot recommend this volume highly enough – you can actually feel your brain expanding as you read.  For those who have even a slight interest in heart disease and diabetes, it will make you an authority on the subject – if you can concentrate for long enough!.”  (Diabetic Update, 1 April 2015)
