Overview

Finally—You Can Understand Her!

Women: Complicated and impossible to understand? Do you love and want to please the woman in your life, but just can’t seem to figure her out? That was before For Men Only. Now at your fingertips is the tool that will unlock the secret to her mysterious ways. Through hundreds of interviews and the results of a scientific national survey of women, this book demonstrates that women are actually not random and that they really can be systematized and “mapped.” In fact, much to men’s delight, this book shows that women are actually quite easy to understand and please—as long as you know what it is they need. This simple map will guide you to loving your wife or girlfriend in the way she needs to be loved.

The bestselling author of For Women Onlyteams with her husband to offer men the key to unlocking the mysterious ways of women. Through Shaunti and Jeff Feldhahn ’s national scientific survey and hundreds of interviews, For Men Only reveals what you can do today to improve your relationship. And believe it or not, as Jeff assures men, “It’s not splitting the atom.”

And for every guy who rarely reads a manual: Quick-Start Guide Included!

“When we featured Shaunti’s book For Women Only on FamilyLife Today, the phone rang off the hook! When Shaunti and Jeff come back on our broadcast, I’m buying some more phones. This is fresh and relevant—good stuff for every marriage. Read it!”
-Dennis Rainey, President, FamilyLife

Story Behind the Book

“As I was writing For Women Only to help women understand the inner lives of men, over and over I heard that men wished there was a way to understand their wives, but they felt it was probably impossible. I heard from them, ‘You are writing this little slim volume about men, but if it was about understanding women, it would have to be the size of an encyclopedia! Women are random and complicated!’ These men were surprised and encouraged when I assured them that women are neither random nor complicated, and we can be understood. Men just want to love their wives well, and For Men Only will help them do that.”
—Shaunti Feldhahn

In For Men Only, these high-profile Harvard graduates draw on surveys, interviews, and the lessons of faith to construct simple maps of what women really want. A pleasing prescription for mutual enrichment.

Meet the Author

Shaunti Feldhahn is a best-selling author of For Women Only, a public speaker, and a nationally syndicated newspaper columnist. She contributes the conservative opinion for the Atlanta Journal- Constitution’s popular online “Woman to Woman” column which is syndicated all over the country. Shaunti holds a masters degree in public policy from Harvard University, and worked on Wall Street and Capitol Hill before becoming a surprise bestselling author in 1998. This wife of attorney and co-author Jeff Feldhahn and mother of two, now applies her analytical skills to illuminating those important, surprising truths that people really need to understand about each other. Her books for adults include For Women Only, For Men Only and For Parents Only and for teens - For Young Women Only and coming September of 2008, For Young Men Only. Each book is based on a nationwide survey and more than1,000 personal interviews. The result: candid expressions of the difficult-to-communicate-but-true inner feelings and thoughts of the men, women and teens surveyed. What makes Shaunti’s books and speaking events successful is her ability to communicate so clearly what she learned from the surveys about the inner longings, the reasons behind the exasperating words, and what your spouse or teen would tell you if only they could trust you to truly listen … what they say will surprise you!

    I am a 68 year old woman and have been married for 46 years and

    I am a 68 year old woman and have been married for 46 years and wish I could have my husband read this book. But he is not interested in "stuff like that".  I read "For Women Only" through 2 times in 2 weeks and was amazed and enlightened at what I read.  Many things now make sense that I was puzzled about for years.  So I wondered what was said about me in this book.  I feel I was described quite accurately.  But the chapter, With Sex, Her "No" Doesn't Mean You, had me crying most of the way through.  How much more enjoyable our sex life would have been all these years if he had read something like this chapter or listened when I told him what would make sex better for me. 

    So I encourage you to read this book, pay attention, write things down on note cards and review them if need be.  I think you will get much return on that investment if you put these things into practice.

    Remember, though, really good sex starts at the breakfast table, progresses with a kiss on the back of her neck and a whisper in her ear as she stirs the mashed potatoes at dinner and ends with an enthusiastic wife when the bedroom door closes.

    I was in a study using the companion book, For Women Only. I would suggest that both partners read both books. "For Women Only" is a shallow excuse for men to act like boys.

    Useful insight

    This book offers useful insight into relationships with women. Relationships between the genders always seem complicated. For men brave enough to pursue such relationships it is a useful map to a woman's point of view.

    For Men Only?

    There is a certain curiosity that seems to be inherent in each person. Even though we are all human, we want to know why the opposite sex does what they do, especially since what they do seems so, well, opposite, to us. Shaunti Feldhahn released a book for women called For Women Only that tackled one side of this question. I read it as a very young woman and found that there wasn't a lot for me to connect to. I wasn't married or in a relationship and I didn't have a need to understand men on the level she was writing about them. When she and her husband came out with For Men Only a little later, I picked it up for a different reason. I wanted to know what they were saying about me. I figured that at some point I might meet someone who had read this book and I wanted to make sure that it was based in a certain amount of fact.

    When this book came up as a choice for review, I jumped at it. Reading it all those years ago changed a lot of the ways that I understood myself. Something simple like knowing that guys can think about one thing at a time, and knowing that will never be possible for me were so insightful. That said, this book is filled, necessarily with generalizations. My second time through it caused me to think more about the things that weren't quite accurate for me. This was a sharp contrast from my first time reading the book. I wanted to give it out to men like candy. Having read it twice, I now think that both of these responses are valid. This book did help me understand myself better and be able to more clearly describe some of the ways that I tick, this is a valuable tool in communication with anyone. It also reminded me that each gender has many permutations. It would be simple to say: this is how a guy thinks...or vice versa. I don't think that this is what the Feldhahns are trying to accomplish here. As a woman, I see this as a great conversation starter and I look forward to going back to it again as life continues to change.

    I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.

    for men only

    Here Is a Quick Summary of some of the chapters

    1) Rethinking Random - Good insight on how women feel/think

    2) The Deal is Never Closed - A good talk about how women feel about a man's love

    3) Windows...Open! - Women as multitaskers and Grudge Issues

    4) Your Real Job Is Closer to Home - Husbands home more even if it means less income

    5) Listening Is the Solution - The hardest part for a man (which I am), listen don't try to fix everything.

    6) With Sex, Her "No" Doesn't mean You - Another tough one for a man to get. Ego is always a problem

    This is a good practical book that is not deep but should provide men with good insight into their woman. The key loving our spouses correctly is understanding them so that we can serve them and meet their needs. This book does a good job dealing with some very practical issues.

    Great resource!!

    Men - If you want to buy one book that will give you some very good and very helpful information on the way your girlfriend, fiance or wife thinks, buy Shaunti and Jeff Feldhaun's For Men Only. I first heard the Feldhaun's on the radio years ago and as they talked about the studies they had done, surveys they had conducted and the findings they were reporting, I knew I had to buy this book. The counterpart, "For Women Only" is just as excellent and my wife has enjoyed reading it as much as I've enjoyed "For Men.". The Feldhaun's are Christians but they write in a way that appeals to a very broad audience. Perhaps they've taken some criticism for this, but I think they are taking the right approach. The blessing of marriage is a blessing enjoyed by all people, not just Christians. Even though it may be true that only Christians will truly enjoy all there is to receive from God in marriage, unbelievers are blessed by God through the gift of marriage as well and this book serves both groups well with providing solid answers to those troubling marital questions all of us deal with.

    Every guy should read this!

    This book came to me as a gift years ago, and has sat on my shelf until I finally ran out of stuff to read and picked it up. I am SO sorry I didn't pick it up sooner!

    It took only two days to read, and I have already gained so much from it! The Feldhahns break down the female gender into eight easy to read chapters with very easy to understand lessons. Not only do I feel like I better understand my wife, but I also better understand my sister and my female co-workers too!

    I especially enjoyed the chapters about "the windows in a woman's mind," and the "ignore the problem and focus on her feelings about the problem." Boy, did I have that second one way backward!

    The book is written very well, in an easy flowing style that speaks directly to the reader. It is written mostly from the Jeff's point of view, but occassionally his wife Shaunti jumps in with a particularly helpful bit of info.

    Single or married, this book is an easy read that will pay off in your dealings with women for the rest of your life!

    Clear and to the Point

    Love this book. It doesn't tell you how to 'play the game'. Just how to better understand your gal. My friends marriage counselor suggested it and she told me about it.

    I wish I had learned these things years ago!

    The book has data, allows for differences in women, and is organized to allow a quick start. You are encourage to ask your woman which part of the data set she fits. Good analogies.

    Want to understand the woman in your life? Buy this book, and read it!

    The subtitle of this book says that it is 'a straightforward guide to the inner lives of women,' and that it definitely is. This husband and wife team does a beautiful job of clarifying for us men what the inner lives of women looks and feels like, which is something that men have puzzled over for hundreds, if not thousands of years. We are wired differently, and this leads to a host of misunderstandings. Well written and easy to understand. And when I checked out their findings with my wife, she replied, 'Oh, yeah,' and looked at me with an expression on her face that said 'You mean you didn't already know that?' Well, I suspected it, but the Feldhahn's made things a whole lot clearer. The second thing I like about this book is that the authors make clear and simple suggestions for how us guys can connect with our women and correct our relationship blunders. I read a lot of relationship books, because working with relationships is what I do for a living. This is one of five or six that I recommend to clients without reservation.
