As a guy reading this book I can tell you that he is on point with most things. I'm not sure if women would get a lot of tips and pointers that will help them with their current relationship but the book did mentions a few. Relationships wasn't the purpose of the book it was to let you know how men are most the part. I would say about 80% accurate about men. This book I believe is a definite read for women who may not understand how men are and why they are the way they are but if you're looking for more tips on relationships this is not that book.

As an audiobook, this was quite entertaining. Harvey provided few insights that I found to be helpful. Otherwise, his perspective seemed to be rooted in the traditional understanding of men and women. It was decent, but I don't think that I would recommend it to a friend.

Having read literally hundreds of self help books, from survivors, to men, communication, relationship... You name it, I rank this at the top with Ellen Kreidman's "Light His Fire" and "Light Her Fire", and "LifeMates " by Harold H. Bloomfield M.D. , and " When I say No I feel Guilty" by Manuel J. smith PhD

I have often watched Steve Harvey speak about dating, men, and what works with men. I read this book, in 2 days, it is easy to read, simply stated, based on his years of experience observing and working with men, and his own life.

It all rings true. I wish I had read this as a teen or even pre teen girl!
He gives clear easy to understand examples, (which at 54 I can see all the classic mistakes I have made over the years, ), facts, all very basic and simple to understand.

He gives questions and guidelines use for our selection process. He give great suggestions on everythng from dress style to when and hw to approach important topics.

I am so glad I read this. It has already changed my perspective when dealing with men. I have always been clueless, and felt powerless. I now feel informed and empowered to make better well informed decisions, and choices in how I present myself, what I will and will not accept, to how I interpret the actions and conversation of the men.

I suggest this book for anyone intersted in dating and understanding men, what drives them , how they think, operate, and how to get the best out of a good relationship with a good man.

“But remember what drives a man; real men do what they have to do to make sure their people are taken care of, clothed, housed, and reasonably satisfied, and if they're doing anything less than that, they're not men.”

“All I'm telling you to do is to be smart about it. Know that if this man isn't looking for a serious relationship, you're not going to change his mind just because you two are going on dates and being intimate. You could be the most perfect woman on the Lord's green earth-you're capable of interesting conversation, you cook a mean breakfast, you hand out back rubs like sandwiches, you're independent (which means, to him, that you're not going to be in his pockets)-but if he's not ready for a serious relationship, he going to treat you like sports fish.”
