I love Steve as a comedian, however it was very difficult to listen to him read a book. Sometime I wasn't sure he knew what was on those pages. He was reading as if it was the first time he had ever seen or heard it. The book itself is just an extension of the first book "Act like a lady, Think like a man". It was much better the first time.
Wonderful, Incredible, Awesome.
When your friend did not appreciate his wife job in the home and what she did about it
The examples you gave with the people you know, that explain the situation and examples you gave us.
How to appreciate the person you are with and value that person.
I loved both books and thank you for thinking about us woman. Coming from a man point of view is very inspiring. i have a friend that is going through some things with her man and your book has helped her understand a lot of things and move on. And we are looking forward to read your sequel. Can't wait!!! my best wishes to you and your wife. thank you again.
I didn't know
I learned alot about how men think. Listening to the book will enable to interact with men in the work place. In my workplace there are just a few men and I will put into practice what I learned in my professional and personal life.
I have not listened to any of his other performances but I have read Think like a lady and Act Think like a Man. I think it is important to read that book before listening to Straight Talk No Chaser.
I did not have an extreme reaction. I just listened and evaluated and processed and took in what Mr Harvey was saying about how a man thinks. I do think however that the points made in the book relate alot to how Mr Harvey acts as a man and the keys to a successful relationship with him. However there are many points that I found useful and I will put them into play not just with men but with dealing with women as well.
I know there are lots of books for women on how to make relationships easier for them. I just wish that there was information for men on how to decipher women. Women are not as irrational as men think we are nor by myth as "emotional". Attention to detail is key to communicating with women. The one point that resonated with me is that women have to always offer the "cookie" for a man to care for her and in the end if the "cookie" is not available then that just gives a man cause to be mean disrespectful and discontented.
Always interested in personal growth & self reflection to become a more rounded individual who has something meaningful to say
Absolutely! I already have! :-)
Steve tells story's that everyone can relate to. My favorite was about cleaning out the driveway- to move in a new car and relating if to relationships-
Yes & no
This is a MUST listen-- Steve needs to record more!! He is funny- fun to listen to- very relational- heart felt stories but extremely upfront and realistic- I need more stories!!
I will continually revisit this book.
His honesty and the simplistic communication style. Very direct and very clear.
Show me the credits!!!! :)
This book is great! The way he goes over every aspect of how we work is humbling and revealing. It takes away the myths and the 'he said she said' and gets down to the facts. I have downloaded and listened this with my friends. The facts are universal and understandable, you can see everyone you know go into the categories listed, because you can relate to what he is saying. Sure there are some points that may be viewed as old fashioned but that's not quite a bad thing. To have class or at least adhere to what you believe or understand what he is trying to say is the main point. It's like he is illustrating the golden rule for dating and relationships, it's entertaining and informative at the same time. Well worth a purchase.
I am a normal girl, looking for a job and trying to finish a Masters. It's a lot harder than you think. The job hunt especially!
I would and have recommended this book to friends, I really enjoyed the humor and the truth in this book.
I would compare it to He's Just Not That Into You or Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man. I was really sad to find that the latter is not available on Audible.
I like that the Harvey is the one reading the book. It is a story that he wrote from personal experiences so it plays like he's talking to you, telling you all about this and that. That's what kept me listening and laughing.
It's a lot of common sense that you tend to forget when you're dating, when you like someone, etc. The book makes you think about when you've messed up and what you've learned also it gives you something to look forward to.
Great book, I listened to it while getting ready and driving to work. The humor made me look forward to my day!
Regardless of what you may think of Steve Harvey - how could HE write a book on relationships? He's been married 3 times!!! - He sure does make a lot of sense. I had a great time listening to his book. He really lays it out for you - I really feel like I went inside the thoughts of a man, which is so hard to say because any time you ask a man to open up, it's like talking to a brick wall!
I was hesitant about purchasing the audio book version, however, because Harvey is so over the top when he acts or on his radio show, that I figured it would be nauseating to listen to him narrate his story. It actually added to the listen! His personality and enthusiasm made it less of a "you need to do this and you need to do that to win a man" to "hey, here's what you could do different because this is what men like and why we like it".
For any black woman that is interested in the black male psyche when it comes to relationships, this needs to be your go to book!!!
Didn't have time to read the book. Mr. Harvey gets straight to the point to explain to us women how most men operate, and why they do the things that they do.
Men no way think on the same terms as us women. We say one thing and they totally mean something else. I really got a good understand about why some men do the things that they do.
When Mr. Harvey talks about what stays on a mans mind, and that he is the hunter and he is the one that wants to hunt for the game and not the woman do that job.
Keep a man guessing about you, and let him pursue you and not you go after him. What ever you start in a relationship with a man you must do your best to keep it going threw the relationship or it will end. You must keep a man guessing at all times.
This book is wonderful, insightful and full of information that I wish I would have had when I was younger. He covers so many aspects of relationships in such a kind, loving and straight to the point manner that never made me feel talked down to or preached to in any way. I felt like I was being told these things by someone who genuinely cared about his readers.
There were moments where I was nodding my head furiously, laughing out loud or shaking my head in realization at all the times that the information in this book could have benefited me years ago!
I don't think anyone else would have been better as a narrator for this book. Hearing him talk about the information he is sharing was wonderful-he was firm, straight forward and caring-like the father/big brother/best male friend that all us women need when it comes to understanding not only ourselves, but men!
The key differences between men and women and how much over-analyzing we do over the actions of men when the answer is so much more simpler than we thought.
I believe this book is not only a wonderful read for women, but for mothers of young men as well. It teaches women to see things from a different perspective, and helps us to raise sons into respectful and caring men.
