I'm happy to share my thoughts on the book, Men Cry In The Dark, written by Michael Baisden. With the many issues we face between striving to establish a life for ourselves and our families, this book has the components of the all too real modern day issues, wrapped in an entertaining story line. One stand out personality is of the charismatic character, Derrick, who fulfills the role of the eye-catching corporate employee turned businessman. As an adored single parent, Tony possesses the special qualities of an overall nice guy who's constantly being challenged by his bitter ex, Valerie. As one who roots his current interests based on previous negative experiences, Mark chooses to date all races but his own. Through his demonstrated anger, unforgiveness and resentment we learn how one's mindset can ultimately lead them down an unexpected path based on the past. No matter what character you most relate to, Michael Baisden shares a straightforward view of relationships that many of us experience, but not often enough take the time to step back and review. Through sharing the journey of these characters, we relate to our own choices. Over the years, my friends and I have opened up many discussions based on the many issues presented in this book, and I will continue to use it as a topic-starter for more fun, yet inspiring dialogues to come. I most recommend this book as a tool to help encourage the discussion of not only what we relate to and why, but what motivates us to learn how to move on in a healthy and profitable way.

This book is a quick read as it keeps you wondering what happens next. But sadly it has a lot of stereotypical themes that I am tired of reading about....sex crazed cheating self absorbed men, money hungry back stabbing women, European standards of beauty, historians...... you get my point? The book has few redeeming qualities if any. The author could have been more creative in his writing and less vulgar
with his language. Nothing memorable about this book.

There is definitely a story here and this book left me hungry for more of Mr. Baisden's books. I said to myself, "he can do better than this."

I had a hard time following the story and getting into it at first and just when I was all into it and was like, yeah I freakin' knew it!, it was over. I was left hanging. Really dude you just left me hanging like that?

I wanted more!! There's something so real about his characters and their stories I just knew there was something he was holding back.

So downloaded and am now reading, "The Maintenance Man, Collectors Edition" it captured my attention page one!! Thought provoking, deep, and real. You don't know whether to love the men or hate them. A relationship eye opener between both friends and lovers. Great sentiment and a Great read! It'll open your mind.

I'm looking forward to reading his entire collection.

I bought this book in paper back a long time ago and repurchased the book to have on my kindle. Other than being all over the place sometimes as far as characters and plots, this was a pretty enjoyable novel. I'm familar with Mr. Baisden's body of work and while I don't agree with everything he writes, he makes a few good points in this novel. He does play up sterotypes of the black man a bit but it doesn't take away from the novel. The novel doesn't flow as much as I like and some of the dialogue is flat out lame (like a really bad script) but the characters have a certain charm that I enjoyed. A pretty decent book if you're interested in "urban" fiction.

What a disappointment. I have respect for Mr. Baisden, however how does he get off bashing Black Women. There is no character development in this book. The book has numerous grammatical errors. I understand that this book is old so maybe and hopefully the author has matured and now respects women. With the entire label dropping of designer brands I hope he got some type of royalty. No matter how much money you make it does NOT MAKE YOU A GOOD PERSON, I was raised in the hood and I am GRATEFUL for that and I turned out to be A WOMEN OF VIRTUE .

I am happy that the truth of women aren't the only ones that mess up in a relationship. However it takes a real man to own up to the mistake and try to be a better men. It was also good to read that a black man can be a good role model father figure to his child and find a good woman to support his decisions when it comes to parenting. It was a good reminder that if you called yourself a friend to someone then you should be a friend regardless of their occupation. A real friendships will last a lifetime if you resect, support, and cherish each other opinions. It was good to see men that had a respectful relationship with each other and their significant others, and told each other the truth regardless of the outcome.

This was a great book. Talking about men and what they go through in their day to day life. Mark with the issue of dating a white woman was interesting. It was understandable how he felt about black women but all black women are not like that. Ben with hid issue of dating younger women and never learning until it was too late. Tony life was quite interesting and the it showed him as a very caring father. But Derrick lesson was the best, that at the end this made him grow up. I liked the way the story ended, with Derrick getting rejected.
