This book is absolutely hyterical. Tyler Perry is a genious. I have always loved his accounts of Madea, the bigger than life, grandmotherly Black woman in charge of her life and those around her. She is often my hero (chuckle), for who hasn't thought at one time or another to be a pistol-packin' mama or to order our kids into submission! I laugh every time I think about it. What made this book exceptional and a must listen rather than reading the hard copy, is that Tyler Perry narrates the book himself with his ever-familiar voice of Madea. This book starts as a memoir of Madea's life that shocked and thrilled me for it's hillarity. My niece and I both listened at the same time, just to call each other and laugh hysterically at each and every account conveyed by Madea. The book leads to advise for the reader on such things as child-rearing, visiters, and money. Every page is a surprise. Tyler can shock even those of us with the sickest sense of humor. I even have to continually laugh at Madea's mispronunciation of words and her critiques on how people misspeak the English language. TOOOO Funnny!!!! I have read it twice already, and keep it on my MP3 player so I can get a quick laugh at any time I need it, for any place I listen in on is a gut buster. I loved this book!!!! What more can I say. I simply loved it! And I'm laughing once again at just the thought of it.

Getting the Audiobook was the best choice
If you are already familiar with Tyler Perry or 'old school' you will be pleased. Having some of both helps you really relate to the humor and his customary good advise.
The biggest plus is that BOTH Tyler Perry AND Madea are reading it. So reading the hardback would not have nearly the same affect as hearing this duo by audiobook. This was the best choice.
I'm really enjoying it.
