Beneath Vinny's hard-partying Jersey Shore persona is a serious man. Vinny, who has Generalized Anxiety Disorder, released his self-help book today (April 17).

The book, called  Control the Crazy: My Plan to Stop Stressing, Avoid Drama and Maintain Your Inner Cool, is a serious discussion of how he deals with this problem — pretty different from Snooki's fluffy, fictional A Shore Thing.

Vinny also plans to doing a speaking tour at colleges about maintaining emotional health.

It seems like Vinny is single-handedly fighting to prove the Jersey Shore kids aren't all bad role models.
