Book Review & Recommendation: Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man (Know Your Man!)

Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man: What Men Really Think About Love, Relationships, Intimacy, and Commitment
Recently, I ordered  a book and just received it a few days ago. I was so excited that I started reading it right away and finished the whole book in less than 3 days. Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man: What Men Really Think About Love, Relationships, Intimacy, and Commitment is authored by Steve Harvey. After reading this book, then I understood why men, particularly my man acts the way he does.

Surely, you've heard the 'men are from Mars and women are from Venus' thingy. We women, like all the romantic acts and candlelight dinner and all the stuffs we think that sweet to us and yes, we expect our man to do the same. But somehow, we can't get them to do all that unless we tell them specifically what we want. And then we come up with statements with our girlfriends that "My man don't understand me."

After reading Steve Harvey's "Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man: What Men Really Think About Love, Relationships, Intimacy, and Commitment" i finally understood why men don't act the way we want them to. It's simply not in their DNA as Steve said. And when men say that they want to show us love by having sex with us, we could simply tell them straight in their face that they are simply using "love" as a reason to hook up with us. Yes, it may be true for some men who want only sex from us. But for your man, having sex is how he feels appreciated and loved.

According to Steve, men have what he calls the 3Ps: Profess, Provide, Protect. These are the things men are destined to do. It's in their DNA. The book also covers why and how can we minimize the chances of your man cheating on you. In short, the book really answers questions about men, how they think and feel when it comes to relationships and commitment. I'd suggest every girl, whether you're in high school or just entering college and any women who may have failed relationships over and over again to get this book and know all these things about men.

You simply need to know the signs of when a man is cheating on you or when a man is only up for sex with you, what kind of answers you need to give so that a man will think whether to really be with you or simply do 'sports fishing' with you. All the answers you need to know is in this book. So, go ahead and get yourself a copy!

Special thanks to Steve Harvey for writing the book (I'm not sure if he'll read this or not) but thanks. Now, I simply know why my man does what he does and says what he says. I love the book!

I've been on the fence with this one. I've already read Alpha Male by XX & YY - it had so much good advice that I'm not sure what Think Like a Man can add, but after your review I may just download the preview from Amazon!

I made a video in response. I'm not sure I felt the same way:
