I love Harvey's simple and humorous clarity. I wondered if his was a throw back approach and then I realized with his help, women and men are different for a reason. Praise the difference, respect the difference, see the difference...have great relationships. Simple, clear, fun! In conjunction with "Act like a Lady...Read more ›
Steve is partially correct, but he misses the central point. It is true that women do tend to settle for less than they truly want when dating, but the damage they're doing to themselves is not ultimately a result of letting men get away with murder, so to speak. Rather, the problem originates from the fact that women are choosing the wrong men. Decent men don't look for any opportunity to take advantage of women. They don't take that mile when given the proverbial inch. The men who do are the players, chiselers and con artists, the kinds of men who may look good in the store window but fall totally apart when you get them home from the mall.
'Act Like a Lady' ultimately is a rehashing of the familiar 'men are incorrigible dogs' theory of gender. It's a tired story that I'd hope we had moved past, but here it is again in a new package. Yes, men like sex. Yes, men like to look around. But decent men are able to control their urges, especially when they know that not doing so will cause great pain to those around them. Steve's theory doesn't stand up to real life, where if you spend any time, you quickly realize that uniqueness is a defining human personality trait.
Most women do have high standards--that is, until they run into a man who knows all the right things to say to circumvent their defenses. A woman can absolutely KNOW that she's worth all the trouble, but she'll totally drop her guard when a skilled player comes along saying all the right things.Read more ›
Along with Harvey's book, I've also started reading 27 Quick Life Transformation Tips. This book has details on how to make a complete life transformation in a short amount of time. It even offers relationship advice on how to save or improve your marriage. Much like Steve Harvey, this book takes a no-nonsense approach to solving your relationship issues. The book contains a very detailed action plan that virtually anyone can follow. I know that it has helped improve my romantic relationships by leaps and bounds. But, this book doesn't stop there. It also provides a bevy of tips ranging from career advice to nutritional guides. If there's an aspect of your life that needs fixing, this book will have it.Read more ›
