Now Madea is telling her own story, dishing her memoirs and hard-won, hilarious wisdom in her own inimitable voice (with a little help from her friend Tyler Perry). Madea covers every topic you want to hear her on, from the art of flirting, to love and marriage (sometimes two very separate topics), and raising kids (including the full story on the bag o' belts). She also opines on beauty tips (featuring her indispensable advice on the miraculous benefits of Vasoline), the healthy choice of a deep-fried diet, and the Bible (including her favorite Bible story, as you have definitely never heard it before) - and pretty much everything else.
Madea has lived quite a life, and she has some stories to tell. And they're all here. As she's fond of saying, "Sometimes life is hard, and you have to laugh your way through it."

Great! It has been fun and enlightening! I work traveling and it was a great companion.
In this book Madea takes a little time to sit down and give her thoughts and advice on different subjects. If you a fan I would suggest you listen to this book. It will make you laugh and think.
No topic is taboo for Madea! And wbether you want her advice or not, she'll make sure you take heed and learn what you need to know from her personal experiences, which she delivers with the fervor of a Southern evangelist at a revival meeting under a tent (Hallelujah and Amen!!). This is Tyler Perry at his best -- witty, hilarious and wise.
Always funny and often thought provoking. There is much truth in the words and wisdom of Madea.
I love books that are spiritually focused on purpose. I also like some science fiction and investigatory novels.
It was very entertaining and there were also some aspects of it that I found good to know and even useful to share with others.
