Book Description

10 May 2012
A runaway bestseller that tells it like it is and empowers women to take control of their relationships. Whether he's doling out wisdom on why women should enforce a '90-Day Probation Period' before they give their men sexual 'benefits', or explaining to women why men would rather fix it than talk about it, Harvey's advice is always spot-on and often very funny. But behind the humour is Harvey's sincere desire to help women understand men. Released in the run up to the film based on the book, Think Like a Man (June 2012), this a compelling read.

An International Bestseller—Over 3 Million Copies Sold!

With translations in more than thirty languages, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man is the definitive relationship guide for women.

Steve Harvey can't count the number of impressive women he's met over the years—the many incredible women who can run a business, have three kids, maintain a household in tiptop shape, and chair a church group all at the same time. So, when it comes to relationships, why can't these same women figure out what makes men commit? According to Steve, it's because they're asking other women for advice when they should be going directly to the source. In this expanded edition, Steve includes an added section of all new advice, with tips on dealing with your partner's exes, spicing up your relationship, ensuring you're ready for that walk down the aisle, and much more.

Sometimes funny, often unflinchingly 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, intimacy, and love.

5.0 out of 5 stars I don't understand all the bad reviews... 1 Jan 2011
... I think this book is amazing!!

To start off with, I'm 21. I don't think this book is at all old fashioned. This book is the reason why the guy I'm currently dating opens the car door for me every single time HE takes ME out. Which is every time I see him. This is the reason he lets me walk inside and outside through the door he is holding open for me EVERY TIME there is a door in sight. Girls. This book teaches you how to behave so that your man treats you like a lady - and I don't know about you, but being treated like a lady makes me feel AMAZING!

There is a giggle on every page of this book and it is SO easy to read. I have reread it quite a few times and every time it gets me laughing. This advice is coming from a man, so in that respect, it's refreshing but there's also that feeling that you know it's probably better than some books like this written by women. There are real life scenarios in this book that hammer home some very basic, very simple points about men, from a man's perspective. That include how you know if he thinks you're a keeper, and how to keep a man happy in very simple ways.

After reading this book - I love men more than I thought I did before. They are such simple creatures, and you know what? All you have to do is know that you're worth their time and effort, and the rest just falls into place.

I haven't tried to get picked up every time I meet the guy I'm dating. He just offers. I didn't ask to have him open the car door. He just did. I don't ask for doors to be held open, I just smile and say thank you after every single time. I don't ask for him to pay for everything, I let him. I didn't initiate the hand holding, or the cuddle in the cimema. He did all of the above, and I let him.

4.0 out of 5 stars brilliant read, dont believe the bad reviews 7 Feb 2011
By hello
Firstly i cannot understand how this book got bad reviews, i suspect the women who gave such reviews have never had any male friends, and base there naive assumptions on men based around dinner parties they attend where they make small talk with there friends husbands.

i used to be ''one of the lads'' , i had huge group of male friends.. went on holidays with them, was out with them every weekend.. and im telling you now that 95% of them are cheats and think with there genitals and the way that Steve decribes men is very accurate. My boyfriend is my best friend and hes told me some of the stuff that Steve mentions in the book many a time before.

Of course, some things he says are opinions.. such as every decent man should go to church... but the basic principles are all absolutly on the money.. it was strange reading it because everything he said i could relate to my boyfriend and the way he acts..

i would highly recommend this book to all women, it definetly gives you an insight and although i knew quite a lot of the stuff already due to me having a lot of inside knoledge on men due to my friendships with them.. it definatly taught me some things that i will be applying, and il be handing this book down to my daugthers 1 day.

only reason i havent given it 5 stars is because i thought it could of been longer and he could of gone into more issues.

be open minded and willing to accept that men are different to women..

update 2012..... I felt the need to edit my review and add things to it, as reading some of the bad reviews i felt i must defend Steve and the message he is trying to put across.

He is NOT underminding women, he is telling you how IT IS and how it is actually US that control the relationship.

5.0 out of 5 stars I never knew 17 Jun 2014
By trixie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Really loved this book as it did indeed tell me something new. I had no idea men were so consumed with needing to be 'masculine' and compare themselves with other men and that only when they have got that sorted can they concentrate on women properly.
He writes in a really funny and realistic way and tells it straight. I really did learn some new insight into the male mind. This was the best book on the subject that I've read, so thanks Steve for writing it !

1.0 out of 5 stars bit cliché 9 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book after seeing the film, thinking it would be hilarious and insightful. To be honest in my opinion its quite sexist and I'm no crazy feminist but steve harvey comes across as if he is speaking for the whole male population, his view point is regards women as objects. Explaining clearly that women are the homemakers, we are thwre ro service and serve our men to gain there respect, if not its our fault if men are led astray and cheat on us. A few parts were quite insightful and I definitely think you need to take a highlighter to the book to find any information you think may apply to your relationship or life. I know this isn't a professional self help book its far from it...I suppose it serves its purpose as general advice from a talk show host.

I wouldn't recommend wasting your money on this at all.

1.0 out of 5 stars A mistake 3 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
On a whim downloaded this last night onto my Mac - read it in less than an hr and quite frankly regretted spending my money. There was absolutely no value in it whatsoever. Pretty much common sense. Women, have some self respect! that's it - in 5 words - where the 'thinking like a man' comes into idea.
