Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, Expanded Edition: What Men Really Think About Love, Relationships, Intimacy, and Commitment

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.

    Get the Right Relationship Advice, November 19, 2014
    By 

    More often than not, women look toward their female friends for advice on how to deal with romantic relationships. While they can sometimes offer good advice, there’s no better option than to ask someone who knows how a man thinks. Women don’t really understand the often convoluted, brutish way that the mind of a man operates. Steve Harvey, on the other hand, knows exactly how the lesser half’s mind works. As a man in his 50’s, Harvey surely understands what it takes to be one of the guys. He also understands what men want in a relationship. This book is filled with direct, hard-hitting, and primitive relationship advice that many women may have been missing. We all know that Steve Harvey can be funny, but we may not have known that he was this insightful. Working on your relationships is and understanding how men think is key to unlocking a more fruitful understanding between you and your partner (future partner).

    Along with Harvey’s book, I’ve also started reading 27 Quick Life Transformation Tips. This book has details on how to make a complete life transformation in a short amount of time. It even offers relationship advice on how to save or improve your marriage. Much like Steve Harvey, this book takes a no-nonsense approach to solving your relationship issues. The book contains a very detailed action plan that virtually anyone can follow. I know that it has helped improve my romantic relationships by leaps and bounds. But, this book doesn’t stop there. It also provides a bevy of tips ranging from career advice to nutritional guides. If there’s an aspect of your life that needs fixing, this book will have it.
    Of course, if you’re just looking for a way to fix your relationships, then Harvey’s book is a great start. Along with the sage advice from 27 Quick Life Transformation Tips, you’ll be well on your way to successful romance in no time. I know that both of these books have helped me improve in a variety of ways since I bought them.

    Of course, most importantly, my relationships have stood firm because I know understand the brazen, comical mind of a man!

    Don’t take yourself so seriously!, October 7, 2012

    L. Pemberton (New York) –

    I wanted to read; Act like a Lady Think like a Man out of knowing that Steve Harvey is a wonderful comedian and so much insight comes through looking life from the lighter side. I was not disappointed. I laughed, I learned and my heart opened. He explains that men want to, are trained to and are good at the 3 “P’s” when it comes to loving their women. They profess their love; meaning, they tell the world. This is my Lady, my girlfriend, my wife and until they do that know that you are not his. That’s the good news…you know where you stand. Second “P”: Protect: men will go out of their way to make sure that to the best of their ability the no harm comes to you. No one will talk down to you, nor will they even look like they want to harm you. He takes his job as protector seriously…if not, he’s not yours and you are not his. Third “P”, a man will Provide for the woman he loves and her/their offspring. He will make sure that all he has goes towards making sure she has what she needs. Even while dating…Ladies, don’t rush to pay the check. He feels like a man when he can do this for you whether or not you can do for yourself…maybe even especially if you can do it for yourself. His DNA, according to Harvey and I’ve seen this in my life a well, providing is his responsibility. If he doesn’t feel needed or wanted in any of these 3 “P’s” he is not the guy for you nor are you the woman for him. Knowing this, it’s easy to move on or to bring a man closer.

    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…” which is just pure laugh out loud fun I was reading another superb relationship book by Ariel and Shya Kane called How to Have A Match Made in Heaven: A Transformational Approach to Dating, Relating, and Marriage. They also use clear demonstrations (videos included) of life experiences to ease us into joyful stellar relationships. We can have fun with simply seeing another’s perspective. “Awareness” as the Kanes say, “a nonjudgmental seeing of what is” is enough to open us to a world where men and women enjoy each others’ unique approaches. Great companions Act like a Lady, Think Like a Man and How to have a Match Made in Heaven, I just have to highly recommend both books.

    Steve gets it partially right, March 30, 2009

    J. Evans (Houston) –

    The central premise of Steve Harvey’s book is that women are not setting stringent enough standards in their romantic dealings with men. As such, he posits, they are giving away their social power and selling themselves short on their dating/mating goals.

    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. He’s selling something she didn’t even consciously realize that she wanted, and in the end she’s a sucker for it. Some guys get very good at this because they practice deception from an early age with girls. It’s up to women to see these men for who they are and to look the other way when they pour on the insincere charm.

    Women need to realize that the adage ‘all that glitters is not gold’ applies to men as well as minerals.
