Behind the designer sunglasses, clean shape up, and diamond encrusted necklace is a young man who has suffered from anxiety for several years.

That man, better known as Jersey Shore’s Vinny Guadagnino, tells his struggle with anxiety in his new book titled “Control the Crazy: My Plan to Stop Stressing, Avoid Drama, and Maintain Inner Cool.”

Guadagnino shares his story of how his battle with anxiety started when he was a freshman in high school. Despite the fact that he looked like a white version of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air with acne and braces, he had a normal life until one day in English class when he suffered his first anxiety attack.

From that point on, his anxiety turned into depression and ultimately took control of his life. Thankfully, he was able to get help for his anxiety and how he was able to regain control of his life, his anxiety, and his depression.

Guadagnino’s story is filled with hope, encouragement, and quirky humor. Rather than feeling like you are reading a self-help book, it feels as if Guadagnino is sitting across from you, sipping on a coffee, just conversing with you about his life.

It might come as a surprise, Guadagnino’s story is exceedingly well written. On television he might appear overly confident and superficial, but underneath his MTV-image he is a normal person, just like everyone else. He knows how to write to connect with the reader on a personal level.

This book is really written for every audience. If you suffer from anxiety, it will show you ways to deal. If you don’t suffer from anxiety, you will hear the journey of one of Hollywood’s hot celebrities.

It was definitely a cool story bro, tell it again.
