Review

"Through the course of ten years in the publishing industry, it is rare to pick up a manuscript that one can instantly relate to while yearning for more and Paul Cathcart has accomplished this feat in Persona non grata with Diabetes. Whether you suffer from the consequences of diabetes or enjoy reading, this self portrait will engulf and consume you as this writer expounds on a life complicated with diabetes along with the trials and tribulations of everyday life while facing his disease. A real day to day view of a diabetic's real world life from Paul's personal perspective sheds light in this must read narrative. This book is not only for diabetics but for the whole world. A true must read." Derek Raulerson, 22 October 2013 "Cathcart's 'Persona non grata with diabetes' is an engrossing and hard-hitting honest account of life as a diabetic, aiming - as the author himself asserts - to cut out the impersonal medical spiel and confront the everyday truths of it all head-on. Cathcart writes his memoirs with a compellingly blunt hand, and every frustration, every fear is palpable in a way that makes this book a truly sympathetic and invaluable read for fellow sufferers seeking the show of solidarity that the author so determinedly sets out to deliver. This is a brilliantly written and deeply insightful look at life as a diabetic from a candid first hand source." Board of Editors, 'Austin Macauley Publishers Ltd' Best diabetic read ever Finally a book about being diabetic that isn't patronising, doesn't moralise and tells it like it is. I read this book in one go. I shared so many feelings, experiences and opinions of being a type 1 D I went through the whole spectrum of emotions as I read it. I recognised my own denial and anger and my own breakthrough to acceptance when meeting the right team. This should be compulsory reading for all diabetic consultants and diabetes specialist nurses. We could probably all write our own versions of this book, they would probably all be equally as powerful but I thank Paul for having the courage to actually do it. Definitely the best diabetic read ever. CJ, 14 August 2013 http://www.pngwd.com/readerreviews.html --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

About the Author

What kind of persona dedicates their life to understanding and sharing the emotions of diabetes? An everyday diabetic of 21 years experience; Cathcart has come to understand his diabetes as a state-of-being rather than its medical definition. His core belief, 'that only through a rightful understanding can we accept a just responsibility to our shared condition.' http://www.pngwd.com/pngwd.html --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
