Being “shook” is more than a rap lyric for Charlamagne; it’s his mission to overcome. While it may seem like he is ahead of the game and should have nothing to worry about, he is still plagued by anxieties - fear of being weak; fear of being a bad dad; fear of being a worse husband; and, ultimately, fear of failure. Shook One chronicles his journey to beat back those fears and empowers you to no longer be held back from your potential.

I’m a new Therapist and absolutely LOVED this book! In addition to how well written it is, I love how Charlemagne was able to describe his anxiety and experiences in therapy in a way that can easily be understood by people with no concept of what mental health and mental illness is. I also loved the clinical correlations which really help drive home Charlamagne’s point in how real mental issues are and WHY they are an issue. Overall, I have nothing but good things to say about this book. I will definitely be recommending it to everyone I know. LOL!!

Why are you captivated by some people but not by others? Why do you recall some brands yet forget the rest? In a distracted, overcrowded world, how do certain leaders, friends, and family members convince you to change your behavior? Answer: fascination, the most powerful way to influence decision-making. It's more persuasive than marketing, advertising, or any other form of communication. And it all starts with seven universal triggers: lust, mystique, alarm, prestige, power, vice, and trust.

I love Sally Hodshead and the concept of fascination and the 7 triggers but the content of the book is too storybook for me. I would have preferred more of a story from her perspective. I think she has enough insight and knowledge not to need to rely so heavily on research and stories.
