From the host of the popular Steve Harvey Morning Show comes a guide for all women that takes them inside the heads of men and shows how men think about love, sex, and commitment. Steve Harvey can't count the number of impressive women he has met over the years, women who can run a business, keep a household with three kids in tiptop shape, and chair a church group all at the same time. So when it comes to relationships, why can't these women figure out what makes men tick? According to the author, it is because they are asking other women for advice when they should be going directly to the source. In this relationship guide he lets women inside the male mindset, introduces concepts such as the ninety-day rule, and reveals the five questions women should ask a potential partner to determine how serious he is. This book helps women to understand how men think when it comes to relationships, intimacy, and love.
