Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man by Steve Harvey
I think the book is well laid out and easy to read, like a good conversation. While I was familiar with most of the precepts before reading the book, I think the author shows that it is important for a woman to develop her own standards and to ask a man to respect them and that if she doesn't, he won't miraculously know how to treat her the way that she wants to be treated. Harvey is religious-based so if that is something that is an issue for the reader, just substitute 'moral compass' for putting G-d first. Being a woman, I didn't like reading the familiar tale that a man is going to go for sex if it is not provided because I think it gives men the 'reationale' to go outside the relationship when their woman is not available at any given time. However I realized that the whole point of the book is to see things from a MAN'S perspective and while this is just ONE man's opinion, it is helpful to know that I also have to be on my toes to make sure the man in my relationship is receiving what he needs from me. Giving the 90 day challenge is one way to find out how the man will act out of respect. Like Harvey says, if he doesn't respect you now, he won't respect you later. All in all, a very good book and recommended reading for ANYONE who is dating or thinking about what went wrong in their relationships. Read full review

Worth the read
I really liked this book. I thought it was entertaining and yet an honest and insightful male perspective. What I took away from reading it is that I do have a really great boyfriend. We've been together for a little over a year and I can relate to him in a new context now with regard to his need to provide and protect. It also made me feel good to recongnize how he professes with respect to my title as his girlfriend. Definitely worth a read. I think there is something for everyone, both men and women, to gain at an individual level from this book.

Act Like a Man, and Blame The Lady (the real title)
This book is very old school in my opinion. Steve talks about how men think and as far as that portion goes he's very successful in giving an in your face view about how the male mind works, yet in the advice department this book is seriously lacking. When he talks about cheating he goes into how "every man cheats" and to many it's not a big deal because that's how men get their stress release. He says that if the woman isn't giving it up for a month than the man is going to get sex elsewhere. He basically justifies cheating and in a weird way blames it on the woman! He does speak the truth though when he says men wouldn't cheat if a woman wouldn't cheat with them. He tries to give advice about introducing the man to your children and that advice is completely off! He says that you shouldn't worry about how the teenager feels when you introduce the man. To me that is complete bull! His section on "how to know if a man is parenting material" was the only decent thig in that chapter. He goes into how men work long and hard and I'm thinking, "What and women don't?" He also states that you should introduce the man to your children but he doesn't have to introduce you to his kids because the ex wife may find out. WTF?!! I know that if I was dating a guy with kids I would want to meet his kids. This book is like Steve Harvey. OLD SCHOOL! If you want to get an idea of how a man's mind works then get this book, if you want advice DO NOT BUY! I couldn't help but feel like he was making the women out to be emotional bitches that were to blame for all the problems. I feel this book was Steve's way of trying to revive an older time that is dead. Read full review

Book Reviewed by a Man
As a man, I had to read this book by myself and see if what Steve portraits as the average man has to do with how I see myself. Well, I have to tell that he's right for the most part. No surprise, he's a man! Surely that men in general is not extremely as he describes it is, there are some variations, but these variations aren't too distant from the standards explained in these pages. Basically, if a woman lets a man be a man, gives him three basic things (support, loyalty and, hmmm...the "cookie") and set commitment requirements without scaring her partner the more likely she will have a clear vision on where the relationship is going is the man she is with is worth being with and fighting for. In other words, Steve calls women to take a stand and tell loud and clear what she wants from her partner, without fearing the possibilities, including the one in which she loses the man. Yes, losing the man you love, but don't love you back good enough, or just love you differently. Steve believes that you'd better alone than with someone who supposedly don't love you in your own concept. It's up to you, ladies, to follow or not his advice - find love patiently, facing slight disappointments one after another until you find Mr. Right naturally and with no pressure, or keep doing just the way you do, going errands, with hopes of someday being there, and accept anything in the end because you're just too tired trying to make it right. Book well written and very enjoyable, finished in just one day. Read full review

This is an excellent book, it's an easy and entertaining read, full of humor and common sense tips for improving your relationship or finding a new one. The information has worked wonders for my relationship of 8 years and I have friends who have benefited greatly from the book as well. I think Steve Harvey has made a great effort to try to break the damaging cycle that women and men go through. Men feel disrespected and undervalued by women, so as a result, they become players or treat women poorly, and in return, women learn not to rely on men and be completely independent, letting any potential man know that he is not really needed, and therefore doesn't feel the need to "act like a man", thus the cycle begins again. This book not only teaches women what to look for and require from a man, but also teaches women how to treat men so that they feel compelled to treat their woman right. Read full review
