The book "Diabetes Mellitus - Insights and Perspectives" is organized into 17 chapters  and focused primarily on the management of diabetes mellitus from different  perspectives. It also examines animal models in the study and potential management  of diabetes mellitus. Each chapter is unique in content, style of writing and scientific  and professional background and all these add flavour to the taste of the book. The  book provides expert insights and perspectives in terms of scientific and professional knowledge on this important health issue-diabetes mellitus. I strongly believe that  scientists, academics and different health professionals would find this book very  useful. Students would equally find the scientific and professional insights and  perspectives contained in the different chapters very helpful. It is my strong view that  this book would add value to the pool of knowledge on the management of diabetes  mellitus. The references cited in each chapter definitely acts as additional and  important source of information for readers.
