Act Like a Lady Think Like a Man – Book Summary
It’s hard not to like Steve Harvey – he’s a funny comedian, an alpha male and gives bang on advice to women.
OK I’m going to do my best to summarize the ideas in Steve Harvey’s Act Like a Lady Think Like A Man in as few words possible.
What drives men?
To be a provider. The less he feels like a provider the less of a man he feels. A man has to be #1 or feel in charge of something.

Advice for single, unmarried women on the dating scene. Everything he says and does is designed to get you in bed. So:
– Set your ‘price’ or your standard.
If you want to get married set your price high
– Tell him what the ‘price’ is and see if he is willing to pay it
Note: ‘price’ is not money – it’s a measure of sating/courting time, respect, effort, romance, commitment, expectations etc
