Exciting News! The library will be starting a book club this month!

The book “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man” by Steve Harvey will be our book for September.  Sign up below using the comment section so we can let you know when the book club will meet, and so that we can help you get a copy of the book, if needed.

From Publishers Weekly

As a popular comedian, radio host and red-blooded male, Harvey doesn’t have the bonafides typical to most women’s relationship self-help, but he still manages a thorough, witty  guide to the modern man. Harvey undertakes the task because “Women are clueless  about men,” because “Men get away with a whole lot of stuff” and because he has “some valuable information to change all of that.” Harvey makes a game effort, taking a bold but familiar men-are-dogs approach: if you’re “cutting back” on sex, “he will have another woman lined up and waiting to give him what he needs and wants–the cookie.” Several chapters later, however, he introduces the “ninety-day rule,” asserting that, actually, he won’t always have another woman lined up–and the only way to makes sure is a three-month vetting period. Harvey also tackles mama’s boys, “independent–and lonely–women,” and the matter of children in the dating world (“If he’s meeting the kids after you decide he’s the one, it’s too late”). Feminists and the easily offended probably won’t take to Harvey’s blanket statements and blunt advice, but Harvey’s fans and those in need of tough (but ticklish) love advice should check it out (especially the hysterical last-chapter Q&A).

  1. Hello! This is your BMC librarian Melanie Moon. Just checking in to see if anyone is ready to discuss Steve Harvey’s Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man.

    I am about one third of the way through the book. What are your thoughts about the three P’s Mr. Harvey discusses. I would love to know if men feel they follow the 3 Ps.

    Any thoughts on this?
