Product Description

Steve Harvey, the host of the nationally syndicated Steve Harvey Morning Show, can't count the number of impressive women he's met over the years, whether it's through the "Strawberry Letters" segment of his program or while on tour for his comedy shows. These are women who can run a small business, keep a household with three kids in tiptop shape, and chair a church group all at the same time. Yet when it comes to relationships, they can't figure out what makes men tick. Why? According to Steve it's because they're asking other women for advice when no one but another man can tell them how to find and keep a man. In Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, Steve lets women inside the mindset of a man and sheds lights on concepts and questions such as:

—The Ninety Day Rule: Ford requires it of its employees. Should you require it of your man?

—How to spot a mama's boy and what if anything you can do about it.

—When to introduce the kids. And what to read into the first interaction between your date and your kids.

—The five questions every woman should ask a man to determine how serious he is.

— And more...

Sometimes funny, sometimes direct, but always truthful, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man is a book you must read if you want to understand how men think when it comes to relationships.

Customer Reviews:

  • A little disappointed
    Don't get me wrong the book was intresting. However it keep repeating the same thing. If you've ever heard Steve's talk shows you really have heard it all. It didn't give you something new. I wish he would have given more instead of repeating it.

  • "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned"
    This is a book written by a good man, and good men do exist but you have to choose the good one out of all the morally defected ones. THIS BOOK WILL TELL YOU THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A REAL MAN AND ANY "MALE".

    Let me start by stating that if we want men to think like us women, it would be easier for us to just turn gay. We love men and we are too vain not to be with them, that's why we go through the pain of trying to figure them out.

    All the facts Harvey lists about men are well known to us women but we need to actually act upon it and demand it:
    * Men are very simple/direct, tell them what you want instead of having them guessing.
    * Don't freak out men by starting a conversation by: "we need to talk".
    * Respect yourself before you demand a man to respect you.
    * When a man is in love, he simply doesn't hide it, he will profess, protect, and provide for his lady.

    Harvey is quite funny with his honesty about why men cheat; it's simply because, in their mind, sex has nothing to do with love, and because they think they are so slick and will never get caught. I loved what he said about if a man got caught in a picture with his name and his social security # on it cheating on his wife, he will still deny and say it's not him. That is brutally honest and true! That being said, I think any man who decides to break his loyalty contract should identify what is important to him and know how bad it is to lose it before he is forgiven, assuming that there is a woman that can forgive.

    Now that we figured that puzzle called" MEN", I wonder why men still don't get women. We say what we want, we scream what we want and men still don't get it:
    * Women don't want to listen to empty words, they want actions.
    * They don't want some body to hold their hands and run with them on the beach, they want some body that will be there for their family during good or bad times.
    * They don't want to be told that we are loved, but to see that love through actions and constant loyalty.
    * We also want men to understand that even Salma Hayek will be an average looking woman when she is cleaning their house and cooking their meals. Even Pamela Anderson will not be smiling all the time while she's working her butt off, taking care of the family of course. We want exactly what Harvey described about men in love: profess, protection, and providing.
    * Oh yeah, we also want men to take care of the way they look for us, it goes both ways.
    As simple as that, and by the way, we don't understand cheating; it's beyond our mental capacity.

    We are pretty simple too, just don't piss us off. Thanks, Steve Harvey, for I'm shocked...Men do think!

  • Steve Really Put It Out There!
    Steve's book is a great read. It is also an easy read! There were some "I knew that" moments and some "Wow! Really? Didn't know that" moments! After reading this book, I purchased 2 more copies for my girlfriends! Thanks Steve!...more info
  • Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man
    This book is excellent for the person who has lost the fine art of courting, or for those who never knew what courtship meant. I am not shocked that people have been doing whatever when they meet someone, but come on, as a woman I demand that a man treat me like a lady. Trust me I know my value as a human being and more women need to stop acting so desperate. Steve Harvey is telling it like it should be and some ignorant men are getting pissed. Don't get mad, get your act together. All Stars for this book, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man...more info
  • Great take on Men's point of view
    There have been a lot of mixed reviews on this book....I think some women bought it expecting to find a huge secret that will help them find Mr. Right and when they figure out that's not the case...they dog the book. I think Steve is very honest and is upfront in saying that this is his take and he doesn't hold all the answers. This was a selection in my book club and all that read it gave it an A..we have newly married, married with kids, single and dating, single and in long term relationship..so we represent a range...It was funny,not too serious and gave good common sense advice that can help women better relate to men in relationships of all kinds...It forces some women to hold a mirror to their face..knowing they should not be in relationships they are, they are not doing what they should and are settling for a lot of crap that they shouldn't..Overall very good read....more info

So take the tips that Steve giving if you are looking for a committed relationship. We can not change them just like they can't change us. Ladies save yourself some time and heartache wasting with the wrong man...more info
  • Good and Bad
    I was given this book as a gift. I've had my relationship issues and why not learn about what to do and not to do. Thankfully this was a gift and not something I bought myself.

    Some of it rings true, I cannot deny, but my biggest problem is the book to me is saying men are simple, superficial and egotistical. They care about their status mainly before their women. Women have to put all the energy and everything to make the relationship work. We already do enough as it is for the family whether taking care of kids the house, whatever else, now we have to do the main work to keep the man? Come on.

    It is acceptable or justifiable that mean cheat for not having sex from their woman? I'll be honest with my former boyfriend, we had sex and boy was I bored. Experimenting or spicing up the bedroom scene was not on his agenda or he was too prudish and thus I was bored.

    Reading the book and seeing how man are these days it comes to the point where it is not all that uncommon women are looking to other women for that pleasure in ever aspect. I recently watched an episode of 2 and a half men where Charlie's fiancee was doing absolutely everything with Allen except sex, because Allen was being the good guy and the interested in her needs type guy of going to museums, playing board games, cooking, the works, Charlie pawned his fiancee off on Allen so he could bypass going to the museum stay home and watch basketball. he left his fiancee and Allen in the movie theater so he could go in the lobby and sit and drink, but as long as Charlie got the sex he was happy. What the heck? I am not going to have a man that is like that.

    Quite frankly, while I am sure it won't happen sadly enough, men need to grow a brain at times and understand it takes TWO for the relationship to work. Women do not just want the finances, we want to emotions, the love, the respect, etc and not have to be the only ones working our behinds off to make it happen. I will NOT say this about all guys but heck you have a guy writing about guys, so basically Harvey is saying men are the ones not making the effort.

    Again some of the book I won't deny, but it makes you irritated this is how men are, then you ask what is really the point, why bother trying....more info
  • SO,SO
    This book has a lot of common sence that as women today have lost. I wish I could rate it higher but I am old school myself and I also worked in a all male enviroment so it did't tell me too much. I must say it would help some younger ladies. Alot of the strawberry letters I found to be funny. Easy reading...more info
  • The WORST dating advice book ever! Save your money.
    I read this book cover to cover while at the store, and was just positively revolted by it! It's obvious to me that Steve Harvey is just an opportunist who is following the money trail. One comedian writes a dating advice book, so now he does. Copycat! Only thing worse than a certain advice book turned movie, is that this guy EXCUSES and absolves the players. Harvey has the utter audacity to advice women to "love the player. hate the game!" Oh please! That's like telling a victim of domestic violence. Love your husband, even if you don't like the abuse. The only thing this book is useful for is birdcage liner. Save your money and think for yourself....more info
  • eye-opener
    Working around men all day at my job, I thought I had them pretty much figured out. Until I started reading this book, and I realised things were very different. I even had a male friend read this book, to give me his opinion as a guy. And he had to admit: it's all true......more info

  • Not Worth Reading
    I haven't read the book but I got a glimpse into the book at Borders. After reading a few chapters, I decided to put it back because just as the title suggests it's geared toward how a woman should behave according to a man. I'm sure I've heard it all before and do not need to hear it again, especially from a 3x married man. My mother and father have be married for 40 years. I'm 110% sure they would have more sensible advice. ...more info

  • More self-absorbed male psychobabble
    No woman should read or relate in any way to this nonsense. If I could give it negative stars, I would. I'd hate to think of young, impressionable women buying into this nonsense. Why do women buy these books? Are men sitting around reading books about ways to understand women better? NO! Steve Harvey sounds like a caveman. For example, he claims not to condone cheating in men, however, he will explain a cheating man as just interpreting his own cheating as getting "tightened up," and nothing more. In other words, sex doesn't matter to men, so if you're an executive woman, off in a foreign country doing your job to bring in money and you leave your man alone at home, he may cheat b/c he's without sex and it's just a "tightening" for him. You should understand this might happen b/c men cannot do without sex. For Steve Harvey and all the other men who claim this type of cheating means nothing, why does it suddenly mean something when their woman just wants to get "tightened up" while she's away and also doing without sex? See, the opposite is never, ever addressed, which is what makes this the self-serving nonsense it is for those men that want to remain simple, selfish and self-absorbed and still find a reason why women should understand and tolerate these types of attitudes and human inadequacies. Women in the 21st century should burn these books like they did their bras in the 60's....more info

  • Begrudingly I surrender :)
    When I first saw this book title, I thought "give me a freaking break." Could we read another book written by another man telling us women how to get it right? But guess what, now that I'm going through a divorce and tallying up what could be considered yet another "failed" relationship, I read the book, very resistantly. Everyone who knows and loves me, especially the males in my life, scratch their collective heads, and, wonder (like I have) why I keep attracting men who ultimately treat me like crap. What I learned from this book is that not only do I almost never let a guy do anything for me, I often didn't state my standards or requirements. That makes me cringe because it's not that I don't have them. Fortunately, I can connect the dots as to why that is for me. I've never read a book like this, and its message is one I never totally got about men. I've had some brave male friends over the years who have told me that I give my power away, and more than that I don't seem to even understand my power! I truly had no idea what the hell they were talking about!!! But I understand now. For me, the biggest "aha" moment was that I wasn't stating my standards and requirements for what it took to be with me. Sadly, that's led to years of heartache and disppointment in my relationship choices.

    So ladies, read it, take what you want from it and leave what you don't. But definitely listen to the core message and meaning. No relationship comes with a guarantee, but I think having these simple, irreversible facts about men, in mind, will help women to stop investing time and energy in a relationship that will never go anywhere. We heard it first in the book "He's Just Not That Into You," and that was definitely a good book, but still there was something missing. Steve brings it full circle in his book. I'm convinced Steve Harvey is sincerely trying to help women. He realizes, like we all do, that there are so many wonderful, loving, awesome women out there who expend enormous amounts of energy, time, and devotion on a man who has no intention of returning that gift. You don't have to lose your independence, your strength or give up any part of who you are. Just make sure that who you choose to love and share yourself with treasures you in return; if it means letting a man profess, provide, and protect you in HIS way, you can receive that without losing any of who you are. The man who feels you're worth it wouldn't want you to....more info
  • keep up the standards
    Well where do I start I originally brought this book for myself just on the sure weight that it was written by Steve Harvey as a fan and an avid listener of his show I was sure it would be entertaining to say the least. I was not disappointed I found this book fun of insightful information that women can use. Although at this point in my life it's only use for me is to validate my position as a women who has finally gotten it right and found a wonderful husband "the man of my dreams"! I would truly recommend this book for all my single girlfriends and women in need of love because it is a really good reference insight into the mind of a man. I really liked the chapter about how we as women should let the man meet the children early on into the relationship I always thought I was doing it wrong, wow! I feel validated. It's all about standards!...more info
