Ever hear that William Shakespeare did NOT write the poems, plays, and sonnets attributed to him? Why would people doubt this? For many years most people have heard that "Humans only use 10% of their brains," and most of us believed it - until it was debunked in the early 2000s. We just went along with what everyone else thought. The same thing is true with Shakespeare.
In fact, the idea of a young man from Stratford upon Avon who wrote the greatest poems, plays and sonnets in the English language has not been debunked -- until now.
Shakey's Madness: Does a Mental Disorder Reveal the "Real" William Shakespeare explains a brand NEW theory. In it, readers will explore the idea of a different man. A genius author who had bipolar II affective disorder - whose symptoms included paranoia, and for this reason, the "real" author would NOT wish to be connected to the authorship at all -- but then later would change his mind and include clues and symbols to his identity. Why? It was the nature of his mental disorder - not his character.
Sigmund Freud was also a disbeliever. He did not think the man from Stratford was the genius author. Freud spoke about an Oedipal complex that Freud believed was at the heart of the "real" author and was prominently displayed in Hamlet.
Review #2: "I received a free copy of Shakey's Madness in exchange for an honest review, so here goes. To be honest, I enjoyed the entire concept from the cute cover, to calling him "Shakey" and not Shakespeare and all the humor. Boog's tone is conversational. Usually, when one thinks about books on Shakespeare, one usually does NOT read that the reviewer enjoyed the author's sense of humor. I especially liked the story of how Boog rewrote Shakespeare's sonnet and then surprisingly, I liked Boog's sonnet. A psychiatrist told Boog that no one in over 400 years has thought of the things Boog wrote in this book, and I believe it. It's uniquely original. Shakespeare-lovers might hate this book but I truly enjoyed it. Recommend." JB
