“Bernie Mac had a way of telling it straight that made you listen and made you think. He was genuine, always positive, and truly cared if you were okay. I Don’t Care if You Like Me, I Like Me is an undeniably funny and poignant strategy for reaching your fullest potential one day at a time.” —Courtney B. Vance, Multi-Award-Winning Actor of Stage and Screen

“I’ve never seen anything like I Don’t Care if You Like Me, I Like Me. This book is self-help, Chicago-style. It’s the perfect combination of comedy and truth, just like you’d expect from Bernie Mac.” —Sherri Shepherd, Award-Winning Actress, Comedian, and Talk Show Host

Bernie Mac was an actor and comedian with his roots in the Chicago comedy clubs. He’s best known for his role in The Bernie Mac Show and as one of the Kings of Comedy. Bernie wrote two books during his lifetime, Maybe You Never Cry Again and I Ain’t Scared of You. Bernie passed from complications of sarcoidosis in 2012, but he still tops the social media charts in popularity. His legacy lives on in his work and in his words.
