Review: Act Like a Success Think Like a Success by Steve Harvey

Reviewing Comedian and Talk Show Host Steve Harvey’s book. No spoilers just review bites.

A great self-help book written by Comedian and TV host/Film Star Steve Harvey. Emphasis on self-help. Created with generous sprinkles of humor, a few personal stories, and touching relatability.

Read it if: You have a great idea with a foggy plan and are on the ledge. If you’re asking yourself what to do with your life and have a hunch. This book will help you leap into your dream –with a plan.

What’s it about: Steve provides research, personal stories, and templates so you can move forward with your vision. This isn’t some overpaid celebrity talking fluff. At least not in this book. He provides strategies such as the SMART: S.(specific), M.(measurable), A.(achievable) R.(relevant), T.(time-sensitive) system for your goals, along with a vision board and questions that really do help.

Is it funny: Yes, but it’s not really a book for sh**s and giggles. He provides stories of personal struggles that are always great and relatable. Beyond the worksheets, he includes information on family, health, money, mental states, and such.

The cover: The colors resemble power, stability, and a bit of a college text-booky vibe. Don’t worry; it’s not heavy whatsoever.  Regardless, Steve looks successful and approachable. You also can’t miss his projector-sized teeth, which, I have to admit, makes me a bit jealous.

Do I recommend it: The one thing we didn’t agree upon, and it’s a personal choice, is God. I’m Agnostic, so I can’t really relate to this, but I respect him for it and appreciate his spiritual honesty. Other than that, this book is solid. Great job, Steve. I loved it!

Passionate about trying new things and then writing about them. My background is in Film, Media, and Talent Acquisition, so there's much to explore. Still trying to figure out the perfect iced coffee and oat milk ratio; any tips?
