Lifeclass Exclusive: How His Daughters' Bad Dates Turned Steve Harvey into a Best-Selling Author

Season 4 Episode 408
Aired on 09/07/2014 | CC tv-14
Steve Harvey is a successful stand-up comic, an award-winning talk show host and a popular radio personality. However, one thing that was never on his bucket list, he says, was also becoming a best-selling author. "Have you heard me talk?" he jokes. "I've got to be one of the most grammatically incorrect people that they have ever put on daytime television."

Then, he says, his four daughters began dating. "I was so sick of my girls bringing home these losers and thinking they had a winner," he says.

After giving his girls some tough love advice, his eldest told him he should write a book. Steve dismissed it—until the phone rang out of nowhere a month later. In this Lifeclass exclusive clip, watch as Steve reveals what finally convinced him.
