“Harvey offers surprising insights into the male mentality and gives women strategies for taming that unruly beast.”
“Women should listen to Steve Harvey when it comes to what a good man is about. Steve Harvey dispenses a lot of fabulous information about men.”
The #1 New York Times bestseller from the new guru of relationship advice, Steve Harvey’s Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man is an invaluable self-help book that can empower women everywhere to take control of their relationships. The host of a top-rated radio show listened to by millions daily—and of cable TV’s The Steve Harvey Project—Harvey knows what men really think about love, intimacy, and commitment. In Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, the author, media personality, and stand-up comedian gets serious, sharing his wealth of knowledge, insight, and no-nonsense advice for every good woman who wants to find a good man or make her current love last.
AS A POPULAR COMEDIAN, RADIO HOST AND RED-BLOODED MALE, HARVEY DOESN'T HAVE THE BONA FIDES TYPICAL TO MOST WOMEN'S RELATIONSHIP SELF-HELP, BUT HE STILL MANAGES A THOROUGH, WITTY GUIDE TO THE MODERN MAN. HARVEY UNDERTAKES THE TASK BECAUSE "WOMEN ARE CLUELESS ABOUT MEN," BECAUSE "MEN GET AWAY WITH A WHOLE LOT OF STUFF" AND BECAUSE HE HAS "SOME VALUABLE INFORMATION TO CHANGE ALL OF THAT." HARVEY MAKES A GAME EFFORT, TAKING A BOLD BUT FAMILIAR MEN-ARE-DOGS APPROACH: IF YOU'RE "CUTTING BACK" ON SEX, "HE WILL HAVE ANOTHER WOMAN LINED UP AND WAITING TO GIVE HIM WHAT HE NEEDS AND WANTS-THE COOKIE." SEVERAL CHAPTERS LATER, HOWEVER, HE INTRODUCES THE "NINETY-DAY RULE," ASSERTING THAT, ACTUALLY, HE WON'T ALWAYS HAVE ANOTHER WOMAN LINED UP-AND THE ONLY WAY TO MAKE SURE IS A THREE MONTH VETTING PERIOD. HARVEY ALSO TACKLES MAMA'S BOYS, "INDEPENDENT-AND LONELY-WOMEN," AND THE MATTER OF CHILDREN IN THE DATING WORLD ("IF HE'S MEETING THE KIDS AFTER YOU DECIDE HE'S THE ONE, IT'S TOO LATE"). FEMINISTS AND THE EASILY OFFENDED PROBABLY WON'T TAKE TO HARVEY'S BLANKET STATEMENTS AND BLUNT ADVICE, BUT HARVEY'S FANS AND THOSE IN NEED OF TOUGH (BUT TICKLISH) LOVE ADVICE SHOULD CHECK IT OUT (ESPECIALLY THE HYSTERICAL LAST-CHAPTER Q&A).

Act like a lady, Think like a Man
Great read, funny at times too! Thank you for sharing Steve ;)
Men really are this simple. This book explained all of my girlfriends' relationships (and mine). Thanks Steve
Very straight-forward to the point book, that any intelligent woman should take it with a grain of salt and really start assessing their own behavior.
