Book One

I happen to read this book last year after seeing him being interviewed by Oprah and on the CBS.

Well I was watching Steve Harvey last night on his Season premiere No 2, “What Men Really Think” and it reminded me of the book.

On the show Steve Harvey explores Love and relationships and men’s thoughts on the matter.

He had approx 150 females in his audience and about a 1000 men. The woman was asking relationship questions.  Harvey together with his sharp humor was putting up a choice of 3 answers and the guys were giving their choice via a survey.
I laughed my butt off. It was so funny and rather insightful.
I thoroughly enjoyed the show. I think the next one is on this afternoon (09/09/2015). I of course record it and watch it with my husband in the evening.

The book was very light-hearted , not to serious  with great clarity.  I chuckled through the book as we as females are really lost when it come to thinking we know what is going on in our mans brain.
This a video and Steve Harvey is talking about the book. I just laugh listening to him I find his humor very funny.

Just click to buy this book “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, Expanded Edition”

 

Book 2

“5 languages of love”

This book I read about 3 years ago. Probably the best book I have read about helping one understand their relationship with their partner.
I notice since I read the book he has expanded his books to ‘Singles’ ‘Children’ &’Mens edition’ just to mention a few.

It basically determines which language of Love that is suited to you and that of your partner.
It’s a great builder of a rather diminishing relationship of a long marriage or not so long partnership.
Sometimes we really do not know our partners as well as we think we do.
I have actually given this book to many of my friends and find that not one of them have said that ‘This book is not for me’. They have all had great things to say about it.

I cannot recommend this book enough. I especially like the look of the 5 languages of love for children. We are all inclined to treat our children in the same way but each one has a different language of love which could make a difference to your relationship with them especially if they are teenagers.

Both of these books will be great gifts for Christmas

Enjoy

Because if you don’t do different nothing will change
