Bright Spots & Landmines
“A superb and compelling read… In these pages you will find years of lessons learned and tips you can immediately apply in your own life with diabetes. Adam’s personal journey can teach us all to find our Bright Spots, no matter what diabetes throws at us.”
When Adam has advice, I listen. There are few people in the world who have more visibility into the cutting edge of diabetes. Bright Spots &Landmines is an incredible resource from a true champion for people with diabetes.
For me, this is the most anticipated book ever for people living with diabetes.
When I picked up this book, my A1c was 9.3%. After just a month, I’m down to 8.3% and still falling! Every person with diabetes, young or old, should read Bright Spots & Landmines. I plan to be one of Adam’s biggest success stories.
Living with diabetes, we all have good days and not-so-good days. Adam’s book is an essential guide on how to make the good days more frequent, more predictable, and a lot more fun.
A must-read for anyone living with diabetes and those who care for them. After 35 years with diabetes, I still took some very valuable lessons from Adam. No matter where you are in your diabetes journey, life will be easier after this read. I guarantee you will learn something new, get inspired, and feel more empowered.
This book is exceptional – every single page has actions you can apply to your own life to make it better. You would have to read ten good books to pick up the advice that Adam packs into this one. I give this book my strongest endorsement and recommend it to everyone with diabetes.
Our son dropped his A1c from 11.1% to 4.9% in three months! Following Adam’s advice made it easy and makes living with diabetes so much less stressful. This inspiring book is a goldmine of helpful information, especially on foods to eat. Chia pudding has changed our lives!
Adam understands more about living with diabetes than almost anyone I know, both from trial and error with his own blood sugar levels as well as through interactions with many leaders in the diabetes community. Bright Spots & Landmines takes his experience to another level. This book shares exactly what I teach my patients and does so beautifully. What a gift.
Adam artfully uses personal experience, positive psychology, science, and common sense to teach and to tame diabetes for his readers. His storytelling is masterful and the sensitivity in his approach is profound. This book is what I needed yesterday and what I still need today in my diabetes life.
I’ve lived with diabetes for over 50 years, and when I get diaTribe, I read Adam’s column before all the others. This impressive book shares Adam’s story and tons of specific, useful tips for managing my blood sugar. I completely agree with his approach.
Thank you, Adam, for crafting a book that inspires, educates, and does not intimidate. The tide of well-being in the diabetes community rises with this book.
Bright Spots & Landmines is just what the doctor ordered: easy-to-understand, actionable advice to help people with diabetes live well. Adam will guide you through food choices that make blood glucose management easier, strategies for making exercise an integral part of even your busiest day, and tips for adopting a positive mindset. Whether you live with type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, or have been told that you have prediabetes, this book will help you in your journey to a life well lived.
Bright Spots & Landmines is wonderful work! I loved this book’s positive focus, honesty, and real-life tips. A must-read!
All I can say is: ‘Wow!’ I can’t wait to get this into the hands of my patients. Is this book highly actionable? You bet! I am certain that A1c’s will drop, time-in-range will increase, and diabetes burden will be lifted as readers with type 1 and type 2 diabetes apply the Bright Spots and avoid the Landmines.
Adam has put his brain, heart, and soul into this project. Bright Spots & Landmines is an amazing book filled with gems for people with diabetes and their caregivers.
Adam’s guidance and advice in this book is, in my opinion, far more valuable than what you’ll get at your next diabetes check-up. Anyone looking to expand their understanding of diabetes management, nutrition, exercise, and beyond will absolutely benefit from reading this book – even if you’ve had diabetes for 10 or more years!
