Steve Harvey can't count the number of impressive women he's met over the years—the many incredible women who can run a business, have three kids, maintain a household in tiptop shape, and chair a church group all at the same time. So, when it comes to relationships, why can't these same women figure out what makes men commit? According to Steve, it's because they're asking other women for advice when they should be going directly to the source. In this expanded edition, Steve includes an added section of all new advice, with tips on dealing with your partner's exes, spicing up your relationship, ensuring you're ready for that walk down the aisle, and much more.

Sometimes funny, often unflinchingly direct, but always truthful, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man is a book you must read if you want to understand how men think when it comes to relationships, intimacy, and love.


  • Sexist

    Even the title is sexist and offensive.
  • Perspective

    Steve Harvey’s Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man has given me insight into how and what a man thinks and wants. Although, I know this and I am very well aware of the red flags, we as females tend to ignore those signs. This book has taught me to go with my instincts.
  • Good read

    It provides perspective. Even though I might not have these views it shows me how to work with them. To say this book doesn’t align with a mans actions would be a lie. When lined up with past relationships as a guidebook it would have saved me some time and I could’ve gained some as well. Hopefully it helps now though. That’s when it counts. lol
  • Disappointed

    By Loveyuiow
    Got mislead by the sample and the more I continued to read the book, the more I realized this book is sexist and enforces women to sit back and low men to do as they please “because they’re men and that is how they’re raised”.
  • Awesome!

    Very interesting points to think about as women, wished Steve would have touched a little more on dating different age gaps.

  • Not Terrible Advice

    I would say all in all this has been enlightening book. Some parts come off as a little chauvinistic. While he does acknowledge the work load of today’s women, the extreme expectations society places on mothers far outweighs the understanding any man will ever have on women. The fact that women now hold the title of mother AND career woman is something only very few men would even come close to understanding, because they don’t have the physical capabilities to understand things like the pain of child birth and how that changes a women’s body. The whole “men don’t like it when women let themselves go” (interpreted quote) and giving women a ten-pound weight-gain range before men disapprove is just not considering the fact that women bare children and this changes their bodies, often more than the suggested ten-pound leeway “given” by men. I also don’t personally believe that men have any excuses or should be placing suggestions on women on how they can keep their men from straying, let alone justifying why they stray with nominal, meaningless explanations. Ones like if they don’t get sex from their women, they will get it elsewhere. While this may be true, this should not be accepted as a guideline for any couple, male or female. I have already suggested this book to other women, but not for advice on how to act around men so much as to understand that most men just play with women’s hearts to get sex. And the more knowledge a women has to her advantage, hopefully the less female hearts will be broken by these types of men. Any women who have been played by a man knows that, and every dark secret a man keeps is best brought into the light, so I appreciate this book for that simple fact.
