Good resource for someone with Type 2 diabetes?

I have a friend who has Type 2 diabetes but needs a good book or resource to educate him and encourage him. Do you all have anything that you would recommend? Unfortunately, he's not in the best spot and isn't taking care of his diabetes. I'm concerned for him and want to lend our family's support as my daughter has Type 1.

Thanks so much!

Thanks, Nancy! :)

You could encourage him to join this group.

Gretchen Becker: The First Year: Type 2 Diabetes.....She also blogs regularly online for Health Central.

She and a really great pharmacist helped me immensely my first year (2007).....Good luck!
