By the tender age of five, Bernie Mac had found his calling: making others laugh. Since then, he has become one of the greatest comedians of our time. Now, this amazing comic delves deep down inside to retell the poignant story of his childhood and the people who helped shape him into the comedian, and the strong and self-reliant man, he is today.

Bernie Mac was a very special individual. This book takes you from his humble start in life through all of the pains and triumphs, through the valleys and mountain tops of his life. He is very deep rooted in the love of his mother and grandmother and I now understand his passion for comedy. May God bless his daughter and lovely wife Rhonda, they lost a very special man. Thank you for allowing this book to be heard by his many adoring fans.

The Wu-Tang Clan are considered hip-hop royalty. Remarkably, none of the founding members have told their story - until now. Here, for the first time, the quiet one speaks. Lamont “U-God” Hawkins was born in Brownsville, New York, in 1970. Raised by a single mother and forced to reckon with the hostile conditions of project life, U-God learned from an early age how to survive. And surviving in New York City in the 1970s and 1980s was no easy task - especially as a young black boy living in some of the city’s most ignored and destitute districts.

I've always been a Wu-Tang fan but to find out the intricacies of how they began was a really interesting topic. I found that learning more about their beginnings and how they interact as a group was really really something that made me feel like I'm more close to the group and I can kind of understand their lyrics and where they're coming from more.

In this moving collection of thought-provoking essays infused with her unique wisdom and deep humor, Union tells astonishingly personal and true stories about power, color, gender, feminism, and fame. Union tackles a range of experiences, including bullying, beauty standards and competition between women in Hollywood, growing up in white California suburbia and then spending summers with her black relatives in Nebraska, coping with crushes, puberty, and the divorce of her parents.

What made the experience of listening to We're Going to Need More Wine the most enjoyable?

To learn about her family life, school experiences and young adult life really paint a beautiful picture of what type of person she has become. I am definitely a fan and I really wasn't before I read the book. Nice going Nikki!

What was one of the most memorable moments of We're Going to Need More Wine?

The unbearable grief and sadness that you expressed so eloquently at the end of your book. Great job.

Have you listened to any of Gabrielle Union’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have only seen her in movies and TV, never any personal discussions of her life. Very informative.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The only, the favorite, the determined.

Any additional comments?

Superstar comedian and Hollywood box-office star Kevin Hart turns his immense talent to the written word by writing some words. Some of those words include: the, a, for, above, and even even. Put them together and you have the funniest, most heartfelt, and most inspirational memoir on survival, success, and the importance of believing in yourself since Old Yeller.
