Known as one of the Original Kings of Comedy with Steve Harvey, D.L. Hughley, and Cedric the Entertainer—the legendary comedian, Bernie Mac, is now featured in a book of inspirational quotes and daily motivations called, "I Don't Care If You Like Me, I Like Me." A native of Chicago, Bernie Mac developed a comedic style of storytelling that was aggressive, honest, and straight-up, in-your-face humor that only he could uniquely pull off or get away with onstage and onscreen. His wife, Rhonda McCullough, held on to old tapes and vintage recordings of the Emmy award-winning actor to construct the book where each day of the year features an interesting quote of affirmation in the voice of Bernie Mac.

I SEE U also chats unguarded with the master impressionist who served as the narrator of the audiobook, comedian Reggie Reg.
