Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man by Steve Harvey
What Men Really Think About Love, Relationships, Intimacy, and Commitment
As a popular comedian, radio host and red-blooded male, Harvey doesnt have the bona fides typical to most womens relationship self-help, but he still manages a thorough, witty guide to the modern man. Harvey undertakes the tast 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 youre 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 wont always have another woman lined up--and the only way to makes sure is a three-month vetting period. Harvey also tackles mamas boys, independent--and lonely--women, and the matter of children in the dating world (If hes meeting the kids after you decide hes the one, its too late). Feminists and the easily offended probably wont take to Harveys blanket statements and blunt advice, but Harveys fans and those in need of tough (but ticklish) love advice should check it out (especially the hysterical last-chapter Q&A).
