Do you remember 2020 and the Corona virus pandemic? California was shutdown like Blockbuster Video, and while spending time researching watching daytime TV, I noticed several ads promoting, “Latuda”. What is Latuda used for? I wondered. Why so many commercials? And of course, how much did it cost? The answer, the drug costs around $1,500 for a 30-day supply and Latuda is used to treat people with bipolar disorder.
A little later that same day, I happened to be doom-scrolling on Twitter, and I saw a video of the actor Patrick Stewart. He was reading a Shakespeare sonnet. After listening to the woe and despair of the “real” author, I joked, “Wow. It sounds like he could have used Latuda!”
This got me to thinking about mental health symptoms and the “real” author of Shakespeare. What if it was not a joke? What if the “real” author of the Shakespeare canon DID need Latuda? What if he had subconsciously exhibited signs of bipolar disorder in his plays, sonnets and poems? Would not this mental disorder be like the “smoking gun” proving the “real” author of Shakespeare?
Why not check and see?
Here is what Shakey's Madness hopes to answer:
1.    Why did he do it? If the “real” author was a nobleman, why would he give away his masterpieces to a commoner?
2.    If William Shakespeare acted as a front for a nobleman, wouldn't there need to be a massive conspiracy to hide the secret?
3.    Is there proof in the author's style, brilliance and personal imprimatur?
Here is what people who have read «Shakey's Madness» say:
·       I thought Shakespeare was old and boring, but this book is remarkably interesting, and I could not put it down.
·       Well-written with a lot of factual information to back up the claims which is great!
