Reaching Peak LLC Authors Present Coaching With Trademark Psychological Technique "Mindset Reversion"

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwire - May 9, 2008) - The book "Simply Quit Drinking: An Inspirational Journey from Near Death" describes how Karen Gregg Price nearly died coping with anxiety and alcoholism. Price was a product manager at both AOL and New York Times during her difficult struggle, and as a result lost her employment. Price tells an inspirational story of surviving and finding a will to live.

"The shame is that my employers didn't help me. They both fired me for job abandonment, which isn't true. It's all in the book, including being made fun of at AOL. I lived alone in Virginia. I had health coverage, but I was never counseled by any human resources professional or referred on where or how to get help. I didn't know how to help myself, and when I tried to quit drinking, I nearly died from an alcohol withdrawal seizure. Now I want to help others survive with knowledge, help, and encouragement," says Price.

The book, available at describes how Price became an alcoholic while struggling with Generalized Anxiety Disorder. A software marketing professional with an M.B.A., Price has finally regained her career status and her life after years of struggling from 2003 to 2006.

The book is different from most because the co-author couple tell two perspectives. At the time, Florida was one of only 9 states with a mental illness law in place to help.

The co-author interview is available on the Internet radio web site via podcast download at The audio CD and mp3 download are available now. The paperback is due out this weekend on and soon on Amazon, published by BookSurge and Reaching Peak LLC.

"Mindset Reversion is a psychological technique I coined and it worked for me in recovery," says Karen Price.
