The smart, sassy guide to embracing your inner Angry Black Woman

Rosa Parks, Claire Huxtable, Serena Williams. What do these women have in common? They are all Angry Black Women, whether they know it or not.

Throughout history, women's attempts to stand up for themselves have been dismissed as the ramblings of "angry women." But there's a method to their madness. Using quizzes, historical references, career advice, and irreverent Top 10 lists such as "Top 10 Signs That You Should Prepare to Meet Your Maker," The Angry Black Woman's Guide to Life will help you find out what type of ABW you are, and empower you to be the best ABW you could possibly be-and have your loved ones live to tell about it.

A lively look at the art of being a true Angry Black Woman-from her relationships to her career to her family-this hip, hysterical manifesto is the perfect gift for all of the ABWs in your life-no matter what their type!
