In his first book for adults, the New York Times bestselling author sparks honest dialogues between men and women, in the tradition of Steve Harvey's Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man.
Only 34 percent of African-American children today are raised in two- parent households, a sharp contrast to 1966, when 85 percent of black children were raised by two parents. In provocative but heartfelt words, Hill Harper takes on these urgent challenges, bringing a variety of issues out of the shadows. In The Conversation, Harper speaks to women and men with clear-eyed perspective, covering topics such as:
The roots of the breakdown in the black family
The myth that there are no mature, single, black male professionals
What women can do to alleviate the "heaviness" they sometimes attach to dating
What men can do to break the cycle of being a player
The difference between sex and intimacy
Bridging the communication gap
Self-worth and net worth, and why you should never settle for an unworthy partner
Capturing the conversations Harper and his friends frequently have, this book is destined to be one of Harper's most healing contributions.

"Hill Harper trades solving crimes on-screen for a new mission: fixing relationship drama." -Essence "Hill's work presents a light, insightful, and accessible user's manual for African American men and women to better understand that which keeps us apart (and hopefully what can bring us closer together)."
