If you can count on one thing from "Madea" Mabel Simmons, star of the smash hits Diary of a Mad Black Woman and Madea's Family Reunion, it's that she's got something to say. Now the beloved, sharp-tongued, pistol-packing grandmother has her own book-part memoir, many parts hard-won, hilarious, straight-up in-your-face words of wisdom.

    I have read this book three times, I have never laughed so hard over a book in my life. I wish Mr. Perry wouls male a movie about it. I have all Tyler Perrys movies & plays. I wouldlike to have his other book (Madea's big happy family) but I can afford ot right now. When I am down his movies are my go to they always cheer me up and lift my spirits. Thank God for Tyler Perry he is such an inspiration. I think he should run for president.

    I loved this book. It was funny and truthful and as usual full of attitude.

    Mr.'Perry, I've read the book, it was so funny, that I was sitting outside lol when my neighbors stuck their head out to ask what had me belly rolling. I told them what I was reading and they wanted to read it to, I told them they would have to buy their own copy, cause I wasn't sharing mine(I never get my books back when I lend them out). I then found out it was on audio I bought it and love it better than the book. I play it when I'm down and need an up. I tell everyone about it. I think you should promote the audio book more. Just hearing Madea's voice, and her wisdom, just makes my day.

    (Greenacres DOES EXIST). Anyway I wanted to say Tyler that I LOVE reading this book. Whenever I need a good laugh, I always get this at my library. I've read it at least 5 times. I know, why don't I just buy it? I've thought about it. I just haven't. But the life lessons and the humor in it are exactly what I need to get through what ever difficult time I'm going through. I have recommended it to my girlfriends and they all love it. Madea knows BEST!! keep up the great work and I hope to see another book out soon

    I absolutely loved Don't Make A Black Woman Take Off Her Earrings. I loved the pearls of wisdom that Madea had to share. And oh yeah, the section about the ugly man....I myself do not care for looks. My granny use to say: "TO H.E.L.L. WITH LOOKS!" And I honestly feel the same way she did....thanks for writing this book...I love it!
