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."

No really please write more, Mr Perry. I grew up in a small town as far away as possible from the hood, and Medeas advice was still dead on.
I laughed till I cried listening to this book. I am hoping more people but it so you will give me another dose of Medeas medicine.
I was expecting another play story as with the other works of Mr. Perry. I was not pleased at all. It was not a story of reading at all just... quotes and sayings. This was really bad.
What an absolutely great character!! She is a total hoot, and such a fabulous inspiration for the middle aged woman. You forget that she is really Tyler Perry. This is a great book and I cannot imagine reading this book over listening to it.
Madear simply tells it like it T I is. She's a
Benie Mac of sorts. It's not what I expect. Did not hold my attention for very long. It was typical Madear.
I would highly recommend this book. Some parts were just hilarious and other parts just made you smile and think "I never thought of it quite that way". Very entertaining and I really liked the way that the chapters were divided by topics. This i would consider as a very good listen.
Tyler Perry is brillant; he anwsers questions many of us think about but are to embarrassed to ask. Don't let the title mislead you this book pertains to all people Black, White or Brown. Because everyone has a Madea in their family. She's "Sofia" in the Golden Girls, Judge Judy.She's the backbone of your family.She's the person who's going to tell it like it is. You will not be bored. Keep bringing it Tyler.
Guess what? Forget reading te book and buy the audio book!! You will have Madea (herself) reading it. Can you imagine side splitting wisdom from her for more than 4 hours?
GET THE AUDIO BOOK, GET THE AUDIO!!
Tyler Perry makes me laugh so hard! Everyone can enjoy his humor. I hope he does more of these books , they make my day of work go by so much better.
I've had this audiobook for a few months now & I can honestly say I listen to it at least once per week! I've been a Madea fan for a few years now but she still continues to surprise & delight me with her views on everything from relationships to the "Single Mother's Club" & even "The Golden Rules". Madea represents that strong member of our family that everyone has or wishes for. She simply "tells it like it is." Listening to Madea can help give you a new perspective on some of the challenges & issues we face everyday.
