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.
This book was written about a specific type of guy. Maybe those that are like him. You could find some hidden points but most in my opinion are not quite true. This book is surely based on the caveman era and while I do believe that guys think differently then women, this is just another book saying that women should adjust to suit the needs of men. I am not angry just thinking I wish that there where more books focused on the real truth not that depicted by someone who obviously still believes that women should bend to the will of men. Interesting prospective based believably in his own personal experiences and his friends who are likely of the same mindset.
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.
Steve Harvey getting a global education and traveling the world would have made this better.
This book is completely about an American point of view and about American guys. Every step of the way he puts men in a power position except for the moments when responsibility is involved--then it's a woman's job. He assumes guys always want to respect and do right by their wives or gfs. He's obviously not been to countries where men refuse to step into a kitchen or beat their wives for objecting to their many affairs. Most of this book is just huge generalizations made using a select part of the African American community as a lens for viewing the world. Not helpful at all.
Know it all tone.
Anger and annoyance at the lack of education of the author.
Before you go making generalizations about 50 % of the population, you really ought to travel the rest of the world to see how women are being treated.
i loved this book. I have been married for almost 20 years and still got a lot of information from this book. I loved it.
