Author spotlight

Thirty years ago, I used alcohol, romance, and professional accomplishments to soothe my frayed nerves. After I quit drinking, I found I had a serious thinking problem! Over time, I discovered effective tools from therapy, recovery pro­grams, scientific research, and a variety of philosophical and spiritual teachings to find peace, wisdom, and hope–no matter what is going on in my life!

Formerly crowned the “Queen of Worry,” I’ve resigned my post and now live happily with my wonderful husband, Peter, and my cat, Murphy. Although I haven’t had a drug or drink for over 30 years, I do occasionally overindulge in Ghirardelli chocolate and historical novels. 

I hold a PhD in Psychological Studies in Education and an MA in Psychology, both from Stanford University. As a professor at Eastern Michigan University, I won several awards for teaching, and (as Georgea M. Langer) co-authored books and articles for educators.

Even though I have been in recovery for more than four decades, and didn’t think another self-help book would make it to my treasured list, I was wrong. This book is a winner.

Thirty years ago, Gigi Langer was a prisoner of her worries who used alcohol, romance, and professional accomplishments to soothe her frayed nerves.
