    1 thought on “I Ain't Scared of You: Bernie Mac on How Life Is

    1. Mixed feelings on this one, mainly because the book needs an editor so so so damn badly. It's basically several shows worth of comedy, but in little bites that don't string together - they jump from subject to subject, then suddenly you're back at a premise from six pages ago. Such a shame. One good example is that he mentions a followup to a routine that we haven't seen in the book yet (Milk and Cookies) and what happened to his nieces and nephews. If you're not familiar with what he's talking [...]

    2. God Bless him and rest in piece. Thank you for your contributions to comedy and making us laugh til we can't breathe. This is hands down the funniest book that I have ever read. Bernie Mac tells it to you straight in this no holds barred collection of Bernie's life experiences on his way to the top. The book had me laughing out loud several times. I was embarrassed to read it while out in public. You will look like you are crazy laughing to yourself . It should be labeled "Warning: Read Indoors" [...]

    3. Any fan or anyone else who has had a hard life growing up w/an ethnic family will embrace this book! Bernie Mac lays it down, and that ain't no bull! He tells about how soft kids are nowadays due to lack of discipline, the truth of how a family reacts to a celebrity, life on the streets in the city of Chicago along with how he's had to cope with the death of various family members, including his mother. This book if funny, silly, sad, touching and overall an amazing and easy read.

    4. This book was really funny. I enjoyed this book from the beginning all the way to the end. Bernie Mac talks about his childhood and his career as a comedian and an entertainer. This book is not just funny but there are parts where you can relate to in reality. If you like to laugh and like a story with a moral then you will love this book.

    5. I agree with some of the other posters - book is a little erratic and it's basically just a bunch of stand-up routines stuck together. However, I laughed so hard at most of it that I didn't care. If you can, get the audiobook. Listening to the stories in Bernie's own voice was the best part of it.

    6. I listened to Bernie himself read this to me. I loved it. I have always liked his voice and think he is pretty funny. He had a rough childhood but knew from when he was young that he would make people laugh. Enjoyable!

    7. I would have rated this a four but for the bad language. Otherwise this was very good and very funny. I laughed out loud more than a couple times.

    8. this was a very good read. I always enjoyed Bernie mac he was always so funny to me. I miss him very much though. damn he turned out to be alright though.
