Product description


“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.” - Dr. Francine Kaufman | Author, Diabesity; Endocrinologist at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles; Chief Medical Officer at Medtronic Diabetes

“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.” - Dr. Aaron Kowalski | Chief Mission Officer at JDRF; 33 years living with diabetes

“For me, this is the most anticipated book ever for people living with diabetes.” - John Sjölund | Founder/CEO of Timesulin; 32 years 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.” - Steve Mallinson | 24 years living with diabetes

“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.” - James S. Hirsch| Author of Cheating Destiny; 36 years living with diabetes

“A must-read for anyone living with diabetes and those who care for them. 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.” - Phil Southerland | Author of Not Dead Yet, co-founder of Team Novo Nordisk and the Team Type 1 Foundation; 35 years living with diabetes

“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.” - David Edelman | Founder, Diabetes Daily

“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!” - Sarita Lisa | Mother of Aden (diagnosed November 2016)

“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.” - Dr. Anne Peters | Director, USC Clinical Diabetes Program

“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.” - Dr. Nicole Johnson | Miss America 1999; Founder of Students With Diabetes; 24 years living with diabetes

“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.” - Kerri Sparling | Author of Balancing Diabetes; blogger at SixUntilMe.com; 30 years living with diabetes
