    The following review is by Jim Gleason. Jim Gleason, receiving his heart transplant Oct. ’94, retired after 37 years with Unisys Corporation in 2005, is a volunteer with the Gift of Life Donor Program, TRIO, NKF and UNOS as well as a nationally recognized speaker and author: After many years as a heart transplant survivor, I discovered what I had denied as misinformation, that many organ recipients eventually come down with diabetes from their meds, myself included. Walt Crocker lives with diabetes now for over 45 years, becoming a kidney transplant recipient long after that diagnosis, so in his book we have the best of all worlds - an author (of many articles and three books) who uses that skill to write about his survival with diabetes, dialysis and eventual kidney transplant. With so important a topic, this book, based on such life experiences, offers unique insight for the ever growing community of diabetics, dialysis and transplant recipients, as well as their supporters and... More > medical staff who face such patients in their daily practice. Walt fills 300+ pages of daily life challenges that will both scare the reader and at the same time, inspire us to take daily disciplined care to avoid the consequences of doing any less. In his story telling style, he misses nothing, offering detail that brings us into his very personal life, a gift skillfully shared that engaged this fellow traveler on my own life path with similar challenges into carefully taking heed and lessons from this reading that was both educational and entertaining. There is so much personal and detailed information about successfully living with diabetes and too often, the associated kidney failure that leads to dialysis and even a kidney transplant , that it would be overwhelming if it weren’t for the integration of his daily life story that both softens the fearful events and inspires us with his successful dealing with those life challenges. The author draws us into his very real daily life,admitting to both personal failings with detail that tells us this is not made up tales, while inspiring with the successful outcomes that come with never giving up and learning from each experience.< Less
