Vinny Guadagnino was born and raised in Staten Island, New York, and comes from a traditional Italian-American family. He graduated from CUNY College of Staten Island with honors and was a political aide for a State Assemblyman before joining Jersey Shore in 2009, MTV’s top-rated series of all time. When he’s not appearing on reality and scripted television, Vinny focuses on pro-social issues. He’s a spokesman for MTV’s “A Thin Line” campaign preventing bullying; MTV’s “GYT,” Get Yourself Tested, and is a regular commentator on MTV Act, a blog that highlights young people, celebrities, and organizations that take positive social action. Additionally, he’s a spokesman for the JED foundation, working to protect the emotional health of teenagers and college students. He’s also affiliated with and lends support to the “It Gets Better Project,” GLAAD, and
You have absolute power to control your crazy.

While he’s best known as the voice of reason and the most level-headed cast member on MTV’s Jersey Shore, what most people don’t know about Vinny Guadagnino is that he suffers from general anxiety disorder, a mental condition he shares with more than 40 million adults in the United States alone, and one he’s battled for most of his young adult life. As Vinny describes it, his anxious mind can make him feel scared, sad, isolated and alone, overwhelmed, and, at times, like he’s going crazy.

How could Vinny struggle so much with anxiety and stress yet live in one of the wildest party houses in history? He learned to take charge of his problems. Drawing on his own experience and borrowing from some of the most popular and influential spiritual teachers in the field of personal growth, including Wayne W. Dyer, Eckhart Tolle, and Deepak Chopra, Vinny developed a step-by-step program that has helped him get a handle on his anxious mind. Beyond that, his program gave him a sense of personal power and control that has rocked every area of his life.

In Control the Crazy, Vinny shares the triple-threat mind-body-spirit program that he uses every day to help keep him centered on and off the set. You can immediately put his uniquely fresh and straightforward “kick-ass” mental, physical, and spiritual tools to work in your own life. Vinny knows that everyone’s got “something” that gets them down or holds them back. Whatever that something is for you—Vinny’s plan can help you work through it.

Vinny arms you with the tools to:
- Deal with life’s little annoyances without losing it
- Manage haters, bullies, and negative people in your life
- Feel confident so you kill it at work or in school
- Improve your game with the opposite sex

Whether it’s work pressure, family conflict, relationship drama, academic trouble, or poor body image that’s m...
