I saw an interview with him, regarding this book, on a morning show.

It seems like appropriate reading for women who pick worthless men.

First off, Steve Harvey is one to talk about giving someone advice with his womanizing ass...

Secondly, I TRIED reading it. It really didn't keep my attention like I thought it would... I think I stopped at the Chapter called "Why Men Cheat" and never picked it back up again to finish. Most of the advice in his book is common sense and he really isn't telling me anything I already don't know.

Thank god, someone e-mailed the entire book to me in a PDF file and I didn't pay the money on this piece of crap.

What matters is he gets his pockets fat from book sales. I'm sure he doesn't say anything groundbreaking in there, but if it helps someone more power to them.

I pretty much agree with you. I tried reading it but it was boring, full of stereotypes and mostly Steve's ego. I don't agree with half the things he says when he's "code cracking" on his morning show and the book is just a longer version of that. This book is only good for women with no self-esteem who have a bad habit of picking losers.

If you just want to do some reading on the subject of cheating; Michael Baisden's Never Satisfied is at least entertaining.

Well I'm just looking for is this guy a douche bag and should I even bother reading it. I have a really great guy but my therapist wanted me to read this book so I can get a better picture of how guys think. Not because I think my guy is going to cheat on me or anything like that.

I am - just getting to chapter 3. I've having my boyfriend read it with me so we are going chapter by chapter. He is reading it first and then when I read it and have questions he will know what I am referring to. I never really had very positive male remodels so I don't know much about how they think other than it is different then how I do. But thank you, I will continue to read the book.
