“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. It’s more than the average man will usually tell you. Steve Harvey will give it up.” (Aretha Franklin)
“A thorough, witty guide to the modern man....those in need of tough (but ticklish) love advice should check it out (especially the hysterical last-chapter Q&A).” (Publishers Weekly)
“Filled with practical principles, rules and tips, and illustrated with humorous and warm-hearted anecdotes from Harvey’s life and friendships, ACT LIKE A LADY, THINK LIKE A MAN gives readers the real deal about the differences between the sexes and how to bridge them for a mutually rewarding partnership.” (New York Beacon)
“Harvey offers surprising insights into the male mentality and gives women strategies for taming that unruly beast.” (The Philadelphia Inquirer)

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 ›
I was always repulsed by the idea in school, that girls were supposed to bounce around in tiny skirts and freezing cold weather to jump, holler, and cheer for boys just so they could feel important on a regurlar, weekly basis. Not to mention the daily hours of "school" (home ec) devoted to mending football jerseys, (art) making t-shirts to sell for the benefit of the football team (to do whatever it is they do with the benefit of the sales), to (home ec) baking cooking and chili for the teams, etc... and then spend our weekends washing cars and having bake sales in support of the same. And not surprisingly, none of this was ever reciprocated - the football team never donated anything to the ever supportive art or home ec departments. Not that they were ever expected to.
Steve Harvey takes all of this to a new level. Not really a "new" level. But perhaps it's better stated that he's just reinforcing out-dated ideas to a modern society. At one point he actually says that (I'm paraphrasing here because I didn't bother to take notes) "yes women work all day, do more work when they get home - take care of the kids, cook the meals, do the dishes, clean the house but men do stuff too and when they want sex they want it or they're going to stray. And they know you're tired but they're tired too and sex is how they relax.Read more ›
