WELL, WELL, WELL !
You can tell why Steve Harvey is so loved and popular , specially for the ladies; he speak and argued from an experienced point of view. He says what in his mind and we all say: Hallelujah!
I’m pretty sure that we all hooked up when we first read the book’s title! I really don’t know about those people who say that: this book didn’t bring anything new to me! or : NO, it wasn’t like what I accepted! or: I already know that . COME ON !
I don’t think that anyone of you have ever make that “NINETY DAY RULE” or actually look deep into her standers .. So, cut the shit people! it’s a great book and everything it has is so important for us as a ladies. I start reading it in February 11th, after my friends buy it for me, I read it two times. So I finished it in march the second.
This book really helped me, to understand the concept of a man’s mind, and how to master it, I know now why my relationships never were longer that a month, and why I got dumped. So, in this book you’ll learn how to build your own standards in order to get what you want from the relationship, and then lay down and watch him doing what you want, you’ll use the “ninety day rule” to protect your feelings and to get to know the man very well before he get the COOKIE!. And you single mamas, you’ll put a standers for the next man to let him know that your children are your number one priority and you are looking for a man to keep this family tight and to share responsibilities with you.
It also discusses something I really enjoined reading it, which is the first chapter of the book ” THE MIND-SET OF A MAN ” it shows you what makes a man, man ! and how they build there manhood and how they run the relationship. The book is just like what Steve want it to be; he dedicated to all women to empower us with a wide-open look into the minds of men. And so it was !
This book helped me with my work, so I’m going to make some episodes based on some of the chapters in it, in order to let every Arabic women know how to win the game! cause really A LOT of them don’t know a damn about dealing with men and controlling a relationship.
So, the book is divided into these chapters:
1. THE MIND-SET OF A MAN
* What drives men
* Our love isn’t like your love
* The three things every man needs: support, loyalty and the cookie
* “we need to talk” and other words that make men run for cover
2. WHY MEN DO WHAT THEY DO
* First things first: he wants to sleep with you
* Sport fish vs. keepers: how men distinguish between the marrying types and the playthings
* Mama’s boys
* Why men cheat
3. THE PLAY BOOK: HOW TO WIN THE GAME
* Men respect standers get some
* The five questions every women should ask before she gets in too deep
* The ninety day rule: getting the respect you deserve
* If he’s meeting the kids after you decide he’s “the one” it’s too late
* Strong, independent and lonely women
* How to get the ring
* Quick answers to the questions you’ve always wanted to ask
Here’s some of the quotes that liked:
1. I’d argue that this is most certainly one of the key things any woman wants in her man because it is what girls have been raised to accept that they can count on the most important men in their lives to go to battle for them and keep them safe from all harm no matter the coast.
2. Sometimes we need only to meet a real woman other than our own mother to bring out the best qualities.
3. Women are complicated creatures.
4. See men are by nature hunters and women have been put in the position of being the prey.
5. A man is fishing for two reasons he’s either sport fishing or fishing to eat.
6. Master and control things you have control over.
7. You must put me and our kids after God and above all others.
8. If putting the requirements on the table means you risk him walking away it’s a risk you have to take.
9. Don’t be afraid to lose him because if a man truly loves you he’s not going anywhere.
10. It is your right except that a man will pay for your dinner, your movie ticket, your club or whatever else he has to pay for as an exchange for your time.
11. Demand who has placed you in the most special part of his heart the man who truly has feelings for you will give you a title
12. The way you can help him get there is to help him focus on his dreams, see the vision and implement his plan.
13. Men In this world are being judged by other men based on who he is, what he does, and how much he makes.
14. It’s critical that we can show off what we get for being number one we have to be able to fluent it and you have to be able to see it. otherwise what’s the use of being number 1
15. If men are in pursuing their dreams, if we are not chasing the who we are, and what we do, and how much we make, we are doomed.
16. Men are simple.
17. You can figure out if he’s planning to be with you or just playing with you. So act like a lady and Think Like a Man.
I highly recommend this book to every women on the god’s green earth. Read it, memorise it and practise it .. It’s really enjoyable and thought provoking. Thank you Steve Harvey!
