Steve Harvey Says Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man

<br />

I’ve been hearing a lot of people buzzing about Steve Harvey’s New York Times best-selling book Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man: What Men Really Think About Love, Relationships, Intimacy, and Commitment (HarperCollins) and I must say I wasn’t that interested in reading it; hey, I’m an avid listener of The Steve Harvey Show and almost never miss The Strawberry Letter–so what else could he be talking about. But, after watching his interview on the Today Show yesterday–I headed over to Barnes & Noble and ordered not one but THREE copies–for myself and my two friends.

Harvey talks about the “three P’s” that make up a man and his feeling for you–and they are: Profess, Provide, and Protect. If you are not getting all three of things from the man that you are with–then you may want to reevaluate your relationship–and gosh darnit, I think he’s right!

He also goes into what he means exactly by “acting like a lady” and I love it…especially the part about not being a “chirp girl”.

In case you missed it, here is the video from Harvey’s visit to the Today Show…let’s discuss further after you’ve had a chance to check it out.

Well, what did you think?

    This book is excellent, I recommend that all ladies – married or single – read it, share it with their adult daughters and friends. This is not your typical watered down message, nor does it let the ladies off the hook. He is on point and truthful!

    I read the book twice in 1 1/2 days. I was unable to put it down, I read it while on the treadmill at the gym, waiting in the car for my daughter after school, missed doing homework so I could finish it. After I finished reading it twice I mailed it to my daughter and cousin in Maryland. Oh my gosh,it made so much sence. It called for women to be accountable and pay attention and also shared the small nuances of men such as “we need to talk…” I get this book a thumbs up.

    Correction: “sense”

    I received the book from a male “friend”. He suggested that I read the book; however I think he should have read it first before I got my hand on it. This is an excellent book.

    Denene Millner, a good friend of mine, actually co-authored this book with him. I am so happy to see that it’s doing so well. He gives a lot of great, practical advice. Women might not necessarily want to hear it, but I think they need to.

    I read it in 2 days. The book is on point. I have been telling everyone about it. I am going to have a book club event where we talk about the book in April. I can’t wait!

    I like the directness in Mr. Harvey’s book in terms of dating but it’s missing a very important point: If you are not happy with your life and don’t love yourself with or without a man, you are likely to forget the “rules” when Mr. good enough comes along.

    My forthcoming book, I Didn’t Work This Hard Just to Get Married: Successful, Single Women Speak Out due out on May 1, 2009 and available for pre-order now on amazon.com is the perfect companion book. Women can hear from other single women about the traps they fell into and how they’ve learned to excel in life until or unless they find the “right” person.

    I was married for 22 years to a fellow who told everyone he was crazy about me— the profess part— but no provide and protect!
    He once used my credit card and charged $8,000 of stuff for him — and you know what happened! even worse- he filed for divorce! this crap went on for about another 9 years— I tried SO hard– when I saw Steve Harvey on TV talking about the “3 P’s” I felt so validated! when a guy doesn’t act like a man— what a turn off and they don’t get it! I am going to buy this book for my son—- I do not want him to turn out like his Father- what a nighmare!
