“People think I’m successful because I’m fearless,” said the Breakfast Club host. “But the truth is, I’m successful because I’m scared. I want people to know it’s okay to be scared, that we may be more ‘shook’ than we let on. I also want people to recognize that being so-called ‘soft’ can save your life. Shook One is about how facing your fears is the greatest action you can take to realize your dreams.”
“This next great book from Charlamagne continues his commitment to live his own truth publicly,” said Touchstone executive editor Matthew Benjamin. “This is a journey he is currently on and one he is determined to show is a healthy path for many.”
Shook One: Anxiety Playing Tricks On Me, will release in the fall.
