I couldn’t be more pleased, and more amused, to see that my book, 50 Diabetes Myths That Can Ruin Your Life and the 50 Diabetes Truths That Can Save It is now in Mandarin and available in China.
Quite shocking, actually, to hold a book in your hands that you not only can’t read, but can’t figure out if you’re actually holding correctly.
While China is economically becoming “the new Japan,” part of its new wealth is also contributing to making it the country with the largest number of people with diabetes.
According to the International Diabetes Federation 92.4 million adults in China have diabetes, superseding India’s ranking as fastest growing nation with diabetes, and it’s expected by 2030 there will be close to half a billion people in China with diabetes.
Well, all I can say is I hope a few people buy a book before they end up reproduced on the black market for a nickel a copy.
Do check out the addition I insisted on – the ice cream cone on the cover 😉
