“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
I found this book to be quite interesting . It is for woman who need to upgrade their self esteem . Anyone who has been actively dating men can figure out that they are quite simple . Men need food ,money and sex . Reading this book has enlightened me to understand that the average man has no depth and is completely self centered . He will only perform his duties as a husband when he wants to . Most men aren't interested in integrity , fatherhood or honesty . They are primarily interested in sex . Woman should stop the ridiculous fantasy that men can be more than this . If you want one of these types of men , follow the rules of this book and it will work in your favor to get a man to commit . Is it time we ask this question ? Why not work on ourselves more than playing some ridiculous game . Maybe it's time that someone writes a book about how to get a woman ! It might read like this . A woman is a simple creature all they need is a honest , trustworthy and an attentive partner . Someone who doesn't only think about sex . That actually has the ability to understand it takes great maturity to have a great relationship . Woman don't require men to wear high heels or uncomfortable lingerie in order to make love with them . We only ask for genuine partners that are grounded . Together we work on the relationship and evolve through love . This might seem impossible to some but if you think about how far we have come with technology . There is hope for progressing the attitudes we have toward relationships . Let's make it cool to be honest . Woman should stop letting men sexualize them . Just think about the changes that will occur when we transcend the thought and behaviors of today . We must create new thoughts to create a new world .
