Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"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)." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

About the Author

Steve Harvey began doing stand-up comedy in the mid-1980s. His success as a stand-up comedian led to a WB network show, The Steve Harvey Show, which ran from 1996 to 2002. It was a huge hit and won multiple NAACP Image Awards. In 1997, Harvey continued his work in stand-up comedy, touring as one of the "Kings of Comedy," along with Cedric the Entertainer, D. L. Hughley, and Bernie Mac. The comedy team would later be reunited in a film by Spike Lee called The Original Kings of Comedy. Steve Harvey is now widely known as the host of the nationally syndicated Steve Harvey Morning Show, which has more than seven million listeners. Harvey continues his unending pursuit and commitment to furthering opportunities in high schools throughout the country with generous contributions from the Steve Harvey Foundation.

The Single Woman's Bible! I bought this book for my twenty year old daughter and was amazed how right on target that Steve Harvey was on "a man's thought's". I'm happily married to a man's man and this book conveyed to her things that she would not hear from us. Bravo, Steve Harvey! I have some single friends who come to me for advice, I'll be buying more copies of this book for them in the near future. I highly recommend!
