[RECOMMENDED!] The Discovery of Insulin by Michael Bliss. Published by University of Chicago Press, 1982. ISBN 0-226-05898-0. US$18.00.

Book cover   Telling the story of the discovery of insulin and its first use in human patients, The Discovery of Insulin is a worthy addition to anyone's library. It's especially poignant for parents of children with diabetes. The detail is extraordinary, with notes from Dr. Banting and others involved in the discovery and first use of insulin. Be prepared for a level of emotional involvement unlike any you have experienced before with a book. Note that the photographs of children taken prior to the availability of insulin may be difficult for younger kids to view.
