I sat him down and told him and he said, “Oh, okay. So many women are going through this thing: He hasn’t asked me yet. That is cool with me, too.” He went out and showed up the next Saturday with the ring. Have you told him what you have to have to be happy? In Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man Harvey reveals what men really think about love, relationships and commitment — and how women can tell if they have a man with whom they can make plans, or a man who is just playing with them.e Harmony: Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man seems to have hit a nerve that people are responding to. Steve Harvey: It has been so rewarding to hear people talk about the content of the book in all walks of life.Once you know how a man thinks, how he processes information, his thought patterns, then you can make a decision.A lot of times you can make the most out of a man if you understand what makes him tick, what drives him, and what he has to have. I expose to women what drives men, how men love and what men have to have.
I am talking about a subject I am an absolute expert on and that is manhood. I don’t know a man who is, but I am an expert on manhood. I don’t care how much we make, what we do for a living, what our religion is or what color we are. So when I sat down to write this book, I wrote it from the standpoint of what I was an expert at and from where I had the greatest source of information — and that was all of my friends who happen to be men. It is real conversation from a man who has no ulterior motive other than to tell them the truth.They are from all walks of life — ballplayers, actors, truck drivers, insurance salesmen, guys I worked in the factory with when I was at Ford motors, and my father. e Harmony: So how are you friends reacting to your giving away their secrets?I found that we teach this thought process to our sons. Steve Harvey: All of my friends are really cool with it.For example, a woman’s love covers a number of things: It is communication skills, it is caring, and it is a nurturing skill. If a man gets sick, a woman nurtures him back to health just like it is in her DNA to nurture a child.She sits with you, she puts your head in her lap, she rocks with you, she checks on you constantly, she will even lay down with you and she stays with you until you are okay.
