Here is an interesting book that I reviewed for Pezcyclingnews. It is the story of Phil Southerland, who was diagnosed with diabetes at 7 months of age (!) and was not expected to live past 25. Not only has he done so, but he became a pro bike racer and now runs Team Type 1, a pro race team and website for diabetics. I have known a few diabetics and found his explanation of how they must manage their bodies every day to be clearly explained. It is impressive that someone can not only overcome this health issue but also inspire others to do the same. Worth reading on its own, and worth supporting the cause.
