Story Behind the Book


“My teenage daughter really needs to hear this!” Such was the typical reaction from countless men and women who read Shaunti Feldhahn ’s bestselling For Women Only.“If forty-year-old women are surprised by the truth about how men think, we realized the value in helping teenagers discover these realities as well,” says Shaunti. Teaming with her best friend Lisa Rice, a mother of teen girls and the coauthor of For Women Only Discussion Guide, they launched a major national survey of guys fifteen to twenty. Their surprising findings are revealed here to help girls improve their relationships with the opposite sex, now and into the future.

At first i thought this book was silly. 'what guys think.' Then i sat down and read it with a female teenage friend of mine who had received it as a gift. The book is exactly what 99% of CHRISTIAN guys want to say to girls. I've been telling my female friends to get this book ever since. I tell them that it will help them both in personal relationships and also in youth ministry.

This is an excellent book!!!! It gives great insight into the way young mens minds work! It is very insightful! It is a great way for girls to understand the way boys think. Having this insight helps in relationships, because you can understand what boys are thinking and why they act the way they do. It also helps girls to know how their own behavior makes boys act in a certain way. If you want "inside the mind of a boy", then read this book! I have bought many of these and pass them out to my daughters friends when they are struggling in relationships. It's a real eye opener! They also make a version "For Young Men Only". I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!!!!

The authors of FOR YOUNG WOMEN ONLY, Shaunti Feldhahn and Lisa A. Rice, have done an amazing job!

They took surveys of guys ages fifteen to twenty, with questions about dating, relationships, and sex -- and the book is what the guys had to say. All of the survey answers are in it, as well as quotes from the boys when they met in groups to talk.

If you are a teen girl wondering what guys are thinking about then this is the book for you. (I think every woman in America wants to understand the complicated minds of guys.) There are many subjects covered, including how men hide their feelings under a tough exterior and how a guy wants to find a diamond in the rough, not someone who comes off as perfect.

I really enjoyed this book because not only is it insightful but it's also kind of funny. There are things that I will now do differently around guys because of reading this book. I only wish that guys could just tell girls what they were thinking -- but of course things have to be difficult!

I was really struggling with understanding what a Christian guy is looking for in a Christian girl. This book answered that question and many more. It really opened my eyes to how guys function and think and it showed me several mistakes that I have made. Every girl should read this, Chirstian or non. The best thing about the book is that it is based on what the guys themselves said. Some of the information is difficult to hear, but girls need to hear and understand it!

My friends were using this book in a bible study group about modesty and it worked out great! I loved it and that is why I'm going today to get one for myself!

What gives credibility to this book is the fact that it is based on survey results from teen boys who were bold enough to be truthful. It might not be what girls want to hear but they need to and should listen. Good solid writing about how guys think and what guys really look for in girls. It is counter-culture in that it does not reflect the current media/pop-culture regarding how teen girls should be and act. A very important book for girls to read who truly want to be in a relationship that has integrity.

My parents got me this after they read the back 'Why are guys so weird?' So I read it in one day and loved it! It explanes everything a girl needs to know about what goes on in a guys head. I think every teen girl should read it.

This talks about boys as if they are all the same. They're not. Also, I understand that some young women will find this useful, but I find it's impact to be terribly patriarchical. Several young women have posted comments saying things like nnow they know hotw to behave around boys in order to put them at easy - as if women should be bending over backwards to accomidate for males. VERY cisnormative, heteronormative, stereotypical and antifemenist
