In his first book for adults, the New York Times bestselling author sparks honest dialogues between men and women, in the tradition of Steve Harvey's Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man.

Only 34 percent of African-American children today are raised in two- parent households, a sharp contrast to 1966, when 85 percent of black children were raised by two parents. In provocative but heartfelt words, Hill Harper takes on these urgent challenges, bringing a variety of issues out of the shadows. In The Conversation, Harper speaks to women and men with clear-eyed perspective, covering topics such as:

•The roots of the breakdown in the black family

•The myth that there are no mature, single, black male professionals

•What women can do to alleviate the "heaviness" they sometimes attach to dating

•What men can do to break the cycle of being a player

•The difference between sex and intimacy

•Bridging the communication gap

•Self-worth and net worth, and why you should never settle for an unworthy partner

Capturing the conversations Harper and his friends frequently have, this book is destined to be one of Harper's most healing contributions.

I am a little late reading this book as I have been out of the loop when it comes to relationship books. Lets just say I lost faith in real-ationships....but this is just what I needed. An open, honest book about what we truly feel and need to discuss in relationships. I have to say that coming from an African American male, this book has the capability to touch the hearts of other races if they have an ear to hear. This is much needed in the black community and I have to say that it has caused me to change my perception of who I may entertain as company in my life in the future. Bravo and thanks to Hill Harper for opening his life and heart to us in a book that would make a great movie!
