Being one of Mr. Perry's biggest fans, I was anticipating the release of this book. I must say I was not dissapointed. Once again Madea has made us take a hard and comedic look at ourselves. I have now passed it on to my two teen-aged daughters to read and I know they will enjoy it as much as I did. Keep up the good work Tyler, and tell Madea 'You go Girl!'

This book is a MUST read. I saw myself 3 generations before me and my children and future grandchildren in this book. If you have ever seen any Madea movie movie or play you can hear her voice and see her talking to you as you read this serious, funny, and true commentary. I have finished it and have started passing it out for ALL the ladies in my family to read.

I have seen the plays, I have seen the movies, and I am looking forward to reading the book. Madea is such a fun loving character, at times she reminds me of my own grandmother. Just the facts of life she gives you. She is full of life and adventure, so you can't go wrong reading this book. It will more than likely have you crying one minute, and laughing the next, just like the plays, and movies.

I have pre-ordered this book which I have been anticipating since Tyler Perry announced that he was writing it. As a collecter of five of Tyler Perry's Plays on DVD: 'I Can Do Bad By Myself', 'Diary Of A Mad Black Woman', 'Madea's Family Reunion', 'Madea's Class Reunion', and 'Meet The Brown's' as well as 'Diary Of A Mad Black Woman' (the movie), you have to understand where this character is coming from. It used to be a time when the elderly women in our neighborhoods were highly respected. If one of them saw you doing wrong, they would speak to you about it and you'd better listen! She had no problem telling your parents that she had to speak to you. Growing up, we learned to respect our elders. It's like Tyler Perry has stated, and I'm paraphrasing it - We don't have many women around like 'Madea' anymore. Nowadays, grandmothers are their late 30's, in the clubs enjoying themselves. 'Madea's' character can be outrageous but this character has a heart. This is how Tyler Perry sees it, and how I know it to be. 'Madea's' approach is comedic and shocking at times, but when you really think about it, 'Madea' is just telling it just like it is. Back in the day, Black females were known to take off their earrings (and shoes too) before engaging in any altercation. That was just how it was. I'm sure that this book will make for entertaining as well as enlightening reading.
