Author Biography

Orthodontist by day, author and stand-up comedian by night, Blaine Langberg sends his protagonist, Adam Freeman, on a quest for spiritual enlightenment and inner peace. Following the maxim, “write what you know,” Blaine has taken parts of his life and exaggerated them into Journey of a JuBu: a story of the struggle to achieve spirituality and mindfulness in today’s pop-culture-obsessed society. Part pilgrimage, part romp, a blend of spiritual humor and meta-fiction, it’s Seinfeld meets The Celestine Prophecy. Blaine lives in Connecticut with his family. Journey of a JuBu is his debut novel.

Journey of a JuBu: How a Neurotic Jew Found his Inner Bu by Blaine Langberg is a unique story that both entertains and enlightens readers. The story is a spiritual odyssey that follows the path of Adam Freeman as he searches for inner peace. He is sent out to find himself in a noisy world where he has to learn to connect with himself and discover peace. The protagonist is actually the author and when he sends his character off on a quest to find spirituality and inner peace, he expects to become a better version of himself: father and boss. Things do not turn out as Jacob intended as his Adam encounters real-life situations and seeks to understand himself. It is a winding, hilarious path that eventually leads Adam to confront his true self and understand meaning in a world that seems to be filled with everything but meaning.

This is a wonderful book filled with spiritual lessons and the author offers a fresh perspective to understanding and embracing one’s spirituality. There are powerful hints of different religions: Christianity, Buddhism, and Hinduism. And at the core of this story is the powerful message that humanity is spiritual. The characters are ones that readers will love and the differences between these characters have a message that readers need to listen to. The humor is strong and I enjoyed the lighthearted manner in which the author delivers a compelling and timely message. Here is a book that makes you laugh out loud while thinking about your own reality and exploring the inner world of your soul. Journey of a JuBu: How a Neurotic Jew Found his Inner Bu is a book that exposes the secrets of everyday happiness amidst the chaos of a fast-spinning world. Filled with wisdom, humor, and insight.
