Besides he has authored more than a hundred different food and drink books including many of the Absolute Press Little Books of Tips.

As the youngest of three brothers, Langley spent his childhood in the North East of England before graduating with a Physics and Astrophysics Honours Degree from Leeds University. Post his graduation, Langley worked for a decade in the Nuclear Power Industry then joined the Articulated Truck Division of Caterpillar. He wanted to go back to school and an MBA degree was something that caught his fancy. His next move was toward Management Consultancy (specialising in new ventures and the gambling industry) before his health took a toll and he had to call it quits.
Earlier, in tandem with his day job, he founded Langley Photographic Services back in the early 1980's to showcase his work as a photojournalist. With the advent of digital technology the business was renamed LPS Creative Media, thus broadening its scope to include video and TV production. As cameraman, producer and photographer Andrew traveled all over the world, covering stories from places as diverse as Las Vegas and Monte Carlo to tracking down elusive wildlife in the remote Scottish Highlands.
Apart from writing he has multi-faceted taste in wildlife conservation, magic, the supernatural, martial arts, blues music and electric guitar.
