My Desk : EAT THIS... NOT THAT

Eat This Not That

My Latest Read : EAT THIS NOT THAT.
Reading though the various featured articles in Yahoo! I got to notice that the source of many of the health article was this best seller book which claimed itself to be incredibly helpful for people trying to eat healthier in this unhealthy world. Lots of great information, good advice, and useful photographs. So having found an interesting pick, my next instinct was to fish out my library bar code and check out if it was available at my local library... Yes! its was right there and even two copies of it... but a closer look showed me a waiting list of... Guess which number I was.. 35!!!! Not bad hah...But that's a long enough a wait for me forget all about this book or rather not... And finally when I got the automated call telling me its ready for pick-up.... Requested this book???.... Who me??? ;)) Well after all the wait the book was a good read or rather a comprehensive guide to what to eat at home, from the supermarket, even at a fast-food counter.

  1. Did Steve Harvey copy the book title Act Like A Lady Think Like A Man

    and theme from an earlier book?



    Book with same title & theme copyrighted and published by Sharon P. Carson in 2003





    CHICAGO, IL – Sharon P. Carson the author of the original title: Act Like A Lady –Think Like A Man, watched the February 27th episode of the Ophra show on which Steve Harvey was promoting his book of the same title. She was hoping that Steve would reveal to Oprah where he got the title and the theme for the book. It just seemed odd to her that his book had the same title and theme as her book that was copy written in 2003.



    Upon subsequently purchasing the book, she found some interesting parallels and realized that it is not unusual for a high profiled person to take a great title and theme, rewrite a book and use their celebrity status to sell it. This she says happens too often to the unsung poets, authors and entrepreneurs of the world.



    Steve wrote in his book that his hope was to “empower you with a wide-open look into the minds of men”. Sharon P. Carson wrote in her book in 2003 that her hope was for women to gain some insight into how men think in terms of relationships. Sharon also noted that in chapter 8 of Steve Harvey’s book titled “Why Men Cheat” he came to the same conclusion that she did in chapter 37 of her book, titled “Why would a man cheat”, and the answer was, “because they can”.



    Sharon actively promoted her book before the release in January 2009 of Steve Harvey’s book, and would not like to see her promotion efforts hindered. She feels that her book has much to offer from a woman’s perspective and seeks to empower women to practice self love and tough love in relationships.



    Before the publication of Steve Harvey’s book of the same title, Sharon bought the domain name: www.actlikealadythinklikeaman.com from which she has been selling her book. She has also held seminars with women at a Chicago University in promotion of her book, and can be viewed on the following youtube clip as she was being interviewed on a cable television program about her book in 2007 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxVVQX15X2Y.



    Mindful of all the self - published poets and authors who have a hard time finding publishers for their works, Sharon is currently consulting with attorneys regarding her options, and hopes that her book with the first and original title of Act Like A Lady Think Like A Man will finally receive the recognition it deserves for the wisdom, encouragement, and empowerment that it provides to women.
