Adam Brown’s acclaimed diaTribe column, Adam’s Corner, has brought life-transforming diabetes tips to over 1 million people since 2013. In this highly actionable guide, he shares the food, mindset, exercise, and sleep strategies that have had the biggest positive impact on his diabetes – and hopefully yours too! Bright Spots & Landmines is filled with hundreds of effective diabetes tips, questions, and shortcuts, including what to eat to minimize blood sugar swings; helpful strategies to feel less stressed, guilty, and burned out; and simple ways to improve exercise and sleep. Along the way, Adam argues that the usual focus on problems and mistakes in diabetes (Landmines) misses the bigger opportunity: Bright Spots. By identifying what’s working and finding ways to do those things more often, we can all live healthier, happier, and more hopeful lives. Whether you are newly diagnosed or have had type 1 or type 2 diabetes for over 50 years, this book delivers on its promise: practical diabetes advice that works immediately.

“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

“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
