Steve Harvey: Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man Audio Book Summary
Act Like A Lady, Think Like a Man: What Men Really Think About Love, Relationships, Intimacy and Commitment, is a 2009 book by author, actor, radio personality, and comedian Steve Harvey.
The book, written with a dry but poignant wit characteristic of Harvey’s style, addresses the truths about why women struggle to understand men and achieve successful long term relationships with them.
Written as a pseudo-self-help book for women, the book dives into many of the reasons that women fail to get what they want out of their relationships with male partners. The underlying problem, Harvey asserts, is that women don’t understand the fundamental driver’s that influence male personalities.
The reality, he writes, is really quite simple. All men are driven by three basic things: who they are, what they do, and how much money they earn.
By understanding these three pillars of the male psyche, Harvey believes that women can work to achieve happier and more successful relationships. He notes that most women approach relationships assuming that the man is going to think the same way she does, only to become frustrated and feel disenfranchised when the man doesn’t reciprocate or respond the manner she believes he will.
Instead, he argues that women need to learn how to deal with men on their terms, in order to have a chance at getting what she actually wants.
For example, Harvey believes that it’s just plain dumb for a women to allow a man to “trap” her in a committed long term relationship (that often includes living together, having children, sharing financial responsibilities, etc) without marriage. That lifestyle, according to Harvey, means that the woman is living on the man’s terms. The only way to break out of the habit and get what the woman actually wants, he quips, is to set a date for the wedding.
Harvey also gives other poignant advice, including what men are truly looking for in their mates, and what characteristics men use to separate out long term relationship potentials from short term flings, with an eye towards what women can do to make sure they fall into the right category in the eyes of their lover.
The book received a fair amount of popular reception, due primarily to Steve Harvey’s existing celebrity status, and was produced as a movie entitled Think Like a Man in 2012 by Sony Pictures, with Harvey serving as an executive producer.
