Overview

The #1 New York Times smash bestseller Revised and expanded with new material.

With over two million copies sold, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man has become a bestseller around the world. In conjunction with its second movie sequel to be released this summer, Steve Harvey has updated his classic with new advice and insights.

Whether it’s why women should enforce a “90-Day Probation Period” before they give their men sexual “benefits”—the way Ford motor company withholds medical and dental benefits until an employee has been on the job for 3 months—or explaining to women why men would rather “fix it” than talk about it, Steve Harvey’s advice is always spot-on and laden with warmth and humor. But behind the laughter is his sincere desire to help women understand men.

Now, Steve shares even more relationship wisdom. Does it feel like your man’s friends are against you? What should you know about being a wife, before you say “I Do”? Steve provides the answers to these questions and more, and offers new insights including:

  • How to put spice into your relationship
  • 8 sure-fire ways to keep your cool when his “ex” shows up
  • A test for you and your partner, to see if you’re actually ready for marriage. . . or need more time
  • A 90-day abstinence calendar, and tips for making it through this important trial period

With liberal use of his own adventures in love and courtship, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man is an honest, compelling, and realistic examination of how men think about love and sex and what women need to know so that they can set realistic expectations of the men in their life.

Editorial Reviews

Since it was first published in 2009, Steve Harvey's Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man has sold more than two million copies and planted itself on both hardcover and paperback bestseller lists. Now it's back in an expanded paperback and NOOK Book edition that features real answers to perennial relationship problems. Among the new dilemmas tackled include what to do when his "ex" appears and effective ways to gauge whether your romantic connection is truly marriage worthy. This new version arrives just in time too: June 20th is the release date for Harvey's Act Like a Man Too film sequel to the first romantic comedy based on the book.

Los Angeles Sentinel
“Harvey’s must-have guide to unlocking the male mind, understanding his game, anticipating his moves and countering with unstoppable offense and defense.”
Aretha Franklin
“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.”
New York Beacon
“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.”
The Philadelphia Inquirer
“Harvey offers surprising insights into the male mentality and gives women strategies for taming that unruly beast.”

This book is straight out of the Mad Men era. The overall message is that men have very fragile egos, and that women must take great care with them. In the 21st Century, Harvey is advocating that women do the cooking (women's work) and don't do any house painting (that's a man's job). And if you have your own money, it's best to downplay it. Wow. While Harvey does hit on some basic truths about the differences between men and women, much of his perspective is very generational. I live in a very progressive city, and most of this advice simply would not fly here. I think this book is best suited for women who are seeking an older man (born in the 1950s or earlier), in a very traditional, Christian community.

I've received this book once as a Nook Sample in addition with the original version of this book and his other book in addition to this one, which I enjoyed all three of them and I watch his talk show almost every weekday. I've previously asked for a couple more books this fall (which are from the Amulet and Rick Riordan series of books) but I had owned them once or twice digitally as mentioned in one or more customer reviews I've made.
