Review: ‘Think Like a Man’ offers some charming self-help
With translations in more than thirty languages, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man is the definitive relationship guide for women. Steve Harvey can’t count the number of impressive women he’s met over the years—the many incredible women who can run a business, have three kids, maintain a household in tiptop shape, and chair a church group all at the same time. So, when it comes to relationships, why can’t these same women figure out what makes men commit?
According to Steve, it’s because they’re asking other women for advice when they should be going directly to the source.
If you’ve ever seen a romantic comedy, then “Think Like A Man” will look pretty titled “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man,” works, largely because it boy Michael (Terrence Jenkins) and single mom Candace (Regina Hall).
Steve Harvey, the author, shares his views on how men think and shares knowledge and dating strategies to help women secure a man, a happy relationship, and a wedding ring. In the introduction, Steve Harvey says men are simple and they all think in a similar way. Steve Harvey says men are simple. A man must achieve a minimum in those three areas to feel like he is fulfilling his duties as a man. Women profess their love many times a day and will probably expect their men to do the same. He will tell everyone you are his woman and he will introduce you with an official title.
The more a man can provide, the more he feels like a man. He will defend you physically, from people who are disrespecting you and by doing things he deems too dangerous for you. Loyal support means that you will stand by his side no matter what happens. Sex, well, Steve says men can only go a month without it.

Henson , Romany Malco , and Gabrielle Union. The film was released on April 20, by Screen Gems. When the men learn that the women are hooked on Harvey’s advice, they try to turn the tables on their mates, which later seems to backfire. Six professional basketball players made cameo appearances as themselves:.
The film received mixed reviews.
Read “The Single Mom” from the story Think Like A Man (A Mindless Behavior Story) He had just published his new book Act Like A Lady Think Like A Man.
It occurred to me the other night while watching The Bachelor ette that single moms are forced to make the kinds of smart dating decisions that single, childless women might want to emulate when it comes to their own love lives. Watching Emily Maynard, the petite, Barbie-dollesque star of ABC’s hit show eliminate the kinds of guys who would probably have been kept around by women without kids has been refreshing and inspiring.
While Maynard often appears a bit bland on camera, the gal’s got conviction and strength. She doesn’t allow herself to be wooed by the physically strongest, most dashing and more alluring men on the show. Maybe she learned her lesson from her failed relationship with the rakish Brad Womack. Monday night, Emily eliminated Ryan, the preternaturally handsome pro sports trainer.
He’s the type of guy that most ladies drool over — mysterious, confident, Alpha albeit a little quirky. Despite their apparent chemistry — which she correctly acknowledged is not the sole determining factor of a successful relationship — she told Ryan she didn’t trust herself around him; his demeanor made her feel insecure. This was the type of guy I chased for years, the man who was masterful at stirring desire and continually keeping me on edge, leaving me with little time to ascertain if we were compatible, if I was even happy.
Instead, Emily kept around and awarded a trophy to the guy who appeared to be the most mild-mannered and least athletic, the guy who came in last in the ridiculous Scottish gladiatorial competition.

In ‘Think Like A Man,’ Steve Harvey Is the Messy Best Friend With Bad Advice
Steve Harvey decided to cash in on the Mangina movement and Black women’s desperation and hardheadedness. This is retarded. I stopped reading after you saying no man will take on a Single mother. Only Simps marry single moms. This book is garbage.
This is Vegas, guys — yet they’re acting less like a wild entourage and Think Like a Man created characters based on the male and female types to Vegas for the wedding of Candace (Regina Hall), a foxy single mom, and.
But during his rocket-like shot to the top, Harvey had his share of relationships and gained a lot of experience with women. Now he’s turning this experience into sage advice for the fairer sex. Check out an excerpt of the book below, then head to the “GMA” Library for other great reads. One of those that stood out most was the lifestyle of a famous and well-regarded celebrity, whose name I’m just going to go ahead and keep to myself. But this much I will tell you: this man had it all—money, fame, and a bevy of super-beauties so bad he could have easily made Hugh Hefner scratch his head and wonder how he could get in on that action.
I mean this man was surrounded by gorgeous women. A lot. And I was amazed at this because I couldn’t understand how one person could get all of these fine women like this. I mean, he wasn’t the best-looking dude in the business—there were others with more money, more prestige, and certainly better looks than him. Still, he was a master at keeping a stack of solid tens at all times, with commitments to none of them.
I’d heard about these superplayers with supermodels on their arms and everything, but when I saw it up close, I was amazed at how the actual connections could happen, and especially why these women stayed with this guy, knowing that they were one of many hanging on his arm. So I sat down and talked to this guy and a bunch of other men who were in similar “relationships” and asked them point-blank: How do you keep these women coming back for more?
‘Think Like A Man,’ And We’ll See What Happens
While I may not be a Steve Harvey fan per se, I am a fan of all things funny, especially when funny comes in the form of a great ensemble cast, well told organically unfolding intertwining stories and characters, and all packaged as a gem of a film shot in, of all places, the Heart of Screenland — Culver City. Men and woman are basically defined by very distinct character traits. And, of course, depending on what your archetype is can be a help or a hindrance when finding the perfect mate and getting what you want.

Harvey divulged the common sense secrets of male dogdom, the way we often think single-mindedly, act irresponsibly and lie our way out of it. Kind of like Bill Belichick stealing the New York Jets playbook, as one of the hounds here explains it. Men considered Harvey a traitor, women called him a sage, and chauvinism everywhere took a hit with each new reader.
Think Like a Man is a glossily condensed version of some of Harvey’s key ideas, performed by an attractive cast with several moments of highly amusing clarity. It’s a movie running about 20 minutes longer than it should but the snappy script keeps you interested, and laughing more than expected. The battle between the sexes is fought on five fronts a couple too many , among upwardly mobile women and the men in their lives, for whom courting is something done with a basketball.
Each male is a particular type Harvey described in print: the mama’s boy, the underachieving dreamer, the non-commitment sort, the happily married guy and the happier divorced one. In the other corner are the women paired with the men with sitcom precision that’s slightly insulting: the single mom, the “girl who wants the ring,” the woman whose success keeps getting in the way, the compulsive one-night stand and the shrewish ex-wife.
