  1. Oh. My. Goodness.I left a review on another of their publications: and that was bad enough, but the formatting on this is something to behold (or preferably not). I bought both at the same time which was a mistake, because having seen one I’d not have got the other.What are they playing at? It took a long time to dig through to find the nuggets – and there was some good information – and I gave up a couple of times to have a rest.The formatting was all over the place, it was hard to tell where one section ended and another started, there was lots of red writing, and many words were broken off half way to start on the next line. Really, I would expect better from the American Association of Diabetic Educators.To add insult to injury, I found the information from in here as well, so the other purchase was a waste of money.What’s the point of having good information if it’s so cunningly concealed? The fact that there is some in there means this got three and not the one or two stars I feel like giving.
