Publisher's Summary

Charlamagne Tha God - the self-proclaimed "Prince of Pissing People Off", cohost of Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club, and "hip-hop's Howard Stern" - shares his unlikely success story as well as how embracing one's truths is a fundamental key to success and happiness.

In his new book, Charlamagne Tha God presents his comic, often controversial, and always brutally honest insights on how living an authentic life is the quickest path to success. Beginning with his journey from the small town of Moncks Corner, South Carolina, to his headline grabbing interviews with celebrities like Justin Bieber, Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, Kanye West, and Hillary Clinton, he shares how he turned his troubled early life around by owning his (many) mistakes and refusing to give up on his dreams, even after his controversial opinions got him fired from several on-air jobs. Combining his own story with bold advice and his signature commitment to honesty at all costs, Charlamagne hopes this book will give others the confidence to live their own truths.

    "Breakfast Club Charlamagne"

    Great book, if you're already familiar with Charlemagne you'd have heard some of the stories in this book previously.
    However he does incorporate some "Gems" and life lessons throughout which are very practical and that I'll personally take on board.

    "If you like C Tha God, You'll love this book"

    Great book and well performed by the author. Was worried this book would just be lots of waffle used to make money but there are some interesting stories and great gems in here all read with passion, humour and humility by Charlamagne himself.

    "this is inspiring. GREAT BOOK."

    this is a one in a million story. it gives great amount of hope to all young fellas out there. Your financial background doesn't determine your life. ignite your passion and change your circle of influence. always be eager to learn wherever you are and listen to your elders as they drop those gems. it's a push for all black kids and struggling fellas out there. believe in yourself and who you are and know that there's something inside of you that's greater than any obstacles. this book have been impacted to me in a way i cant tell even though i dont live in America i understand the struggle and I've learnt alot that will help me on my way to the top. I'll never settle for less, i always say we are gods ourselves i always feel that way and live that way. thanks for giving a deeper understating of that meaning. we live by it.. thanks Cgod!

    "Don't Judge a Book by It's Cover"

    I'm going to be honest. When I read the title of this book, I thought, "I'm not interested in race or any implications behind it right now." I was looking for a book that was going to teach me how to live life. Not another book about how a black person overcame oppression. Just wasn't looking for that the time. But I listened to it anyways after listening to the preview, and it was the best book I have read. It was more about life than anything else. Charlamagne also filled the book with more inappropriate punchlines than Will Ferrel in the Step Brothers. This was just incredible. I'm going to listen to it again.

    "Wonderfully Bold, Brazen and Brash!"

    Listened to the entire book in a day. Charlamagne delivers his story with such a deliberateness and honesty, you can't hate the man for bearing his soul. You hear the stories of the things he's done and you hear them out as if you don't know things worked out in the end. His eight principles are those you can share with your kids...maybe not in the same language, but in theory. A great listen. I highly recommend it for someone who is just beginning their journey or someone who feel as if they have lost their way. Access your privilege!

    "Very insightful!!"

    I enjoyed the book. It was so good that I even took notes. The little stories provided to drive a theme home were great. I learned so much about Charlemagne that I didn't know before. I admit I am a little biased due to being a fan of his work on the Breakfast Club and Brilliant Idiots but as a fan I can say he practices what he preaches in this book. I connected a lot with certain things like the toy he believed was alive. I had a similar experience with that as well. The only negative thing I would say would be sometimes if felt like we got off track when telling the stories with the name dropping and different asides. It was cool via audiobook because it felt more like a convo but not sure how it would be in actual print!! Great start to your writing career!! Will keep a look out from much more!!

    "What an experience! What a privilege!"

    As a fan of the raw and edgy breakfast club interviews, I was determined to purchase Charlemagne's book. Upon ordering the book, I discovered that I would not receive it for another month. So, I purchased it anyway and opted for the next best thing, audio. I listened to this book in one day and I must say, it was an experience. Charlemagne gives jewels and motivates you in a way only he can! I'm inspired and ready to walk boldly in my black privilege!
