Publisher's Summary

In the instant #1 New York Times bestseller Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, Steve Harvey gave millions of women around the globe insight into what men really think about love, intimacy, and commitment. In his new book, he zeros in on what motivates men and provides tips on how women can use that knowledge to get more of what they need out of their relationships.

In Straight Talk, No Chaser: How to Find, Keep and Understand A Man, Steve Harvey shares information on:

  • How to Get the Truth Out of Your Man
  • Dating tips Decade-by-Decade
  • How to Minimize Nagging and Maximize Harmony at Home

Always direct, often funny, and incredibly perceptive, media personality, comedian, philanthropist and (finally) happily married husband, Harvey proves once again that he is the king of relationships.

Informative & funny

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Not only informative but funny too. A shame something like this wasn't available 30 years ago, lol.

Felt like I finally got the talk from my father I

Thanks Steve for everything. This book is awe-inspiring and extremely enlightening. Growing up in a single parent household, I constantly received my advice from women and never had the accessibility of a father to acquire sound advice from. Male friends would always speak in part and fractions. So I never really comprehended their assistance. However, in this book Steve really breaks it down elementary style. Wish Act Like A Lady Think Like a man was available in audio also. I really wished this book was available ten years ago because a lot of mistakes may have been avoided. However, I certainly am glad to have it now when I’m really serious about getting married. I’m off to go and purchase it in print. It doesn’t matter your race, religion, and or culture. Whether you’re married, single, or in the process of a divorce, get the book because you will never be the same.

Great Talk! Women especially..read this

Straight Talk No Chaser should be a manual for young to older women! It gives strong insight into the male psyche without indecipherable words and jargon. I am 49 now, if I had this information in my 20's, I would have been a better person for it! There is something for everyone; men too. This is a great use of a credit

It is exactly what is says it is!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, but only if the person is a listener. You cannot get any more plain than this but some people don't want to get it.

What did you like best about this story?

He delivered it straight and provided explanation. And he used personal experiences to illustrate. These are not rules set in stone but they are the norm that if women would embrace in a vein of discovery, they could put some expansion in their lives.

Have you listened to any of Steve Harvey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, this was less comedy and more straight talk.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

If the goal is to develop a relationship that's leading to marriage it is invaluable to truly know your potential and be clear about the direction the relationship is headed before a lot of time is wasted and feelings get hurt. Once someone releases the fear of not getting what they want they create a way to attaining what they want. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME because you are afraid of what is probably inevitable anyway.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Any additional comments?

Go get it:)

Want to stop that string of bad choices?

Learn to "read the signs" as you go down the road that's a dead end. Stop wasting your time with Loosers/Posers/Player while others are getting the REAL MEN.

No Chaser Needed

This was amusing.....very amusing. I have several brothers and Steve Harvey is telling no secrets that a sister who pays attention to her brothers does not already know. The problem is that many women say, "This won't happen to me!" This is a constant problem that many women have who fall in love with love.

LOVED IT, MUST READ FOR ALL WOMEN!

Initially it starts out about dating which was less interesting because I'm already married...glad I didn't turn it in there. I can honestly say after listening to this book I have a new outlook on my husband and my marriage. Didn't see that coming. Steve really opens up about the realities and expectations of women and the mind set about them (from a mans perspective). IT ALL JUST MAKES SENSE! For those who are seeking a partner-this is definetly something you need to read...for those who already have one...we may have missed the boat in the beginning but there is still hope!
Again, this is a must read for all women. I was also very pleased that there was no profanity.

Another Eye-Opener

I really do like Steve Harvey books and the narrated audiobooks because even though it may not be Steve Harvey himself..it sure sounds like him.
The book is another eye-opener because it gives me a better insight into what men want, think and

Even more spot on no messing answers to ladies questions.

I liked the fact Steve was so honest and direct, no BS here it is as it is and Steve tells us straight, men will get away with what you allow them to.
Steve describes a lady men will want to keep, be proud of, and how as a lady you can set down, honestly and with self confidence your own boundaries and what you expect.
The best parts tell you how to know if a man really wants to be committed to you, how he should/ will behave if this is the case, and important questions to ASK!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, which is different to his famous Act like a Lady, Think like a Man.
