    @serenity648, it's shipping from the UK. I'd contact them and offer to forward your emailed receipt at the time of purchase. I can think of no reason why you wouldn't have it by now.

    Not understanding this...please help...

    Okay, my time is very limited. After reading the introduction, I chose to read first Chapter 4: Who Gets Type 2 Diabetes? (Understanding and Treating the Causes) by Robert Cywes. I've reread the section "Vulnerability to addiction" on pages 76-77 two times and I get part of it but I'm confused by the discussion of "authority personality types". Perhaps someone smarter than me can explain this to me. The ending sentence in this section has completely thrown me: "Authority personality types are not vulnerable to addiction and therefore do not get T2DM.*" I thought the note at the bottom of page 77 would help me, but now I'm more confused than ever and that's unfortunate because I believe what he's saying here is critically important.

    I contacted the publishers and the hardback has only just arrived with them and will be sent out later this week, or next week. I had a quick response.
