Cheating Destiny: Living with Diabetes by James S. Hirsch
In Cheating Destiny, the best-selling author James S. Hirsch offers an incisive, sometimes surprising portrait of diabetes in America. Hirsch is intimately familiar with the disease: he has lived with type 1 diabetes for three decades. His brother, Irl, also a diabetic, is one of the country’s leading diabetologists. Most poignantly, his son Garrett was diagnosed at age three.
