When For Women Only: What You Need to Know About the Inner Lives of Men first burst onto the scene, it received rave reviews from women who were shocked but thrilled to discover how men really think. Soon For Men Only: A Straightforward Guide to the Inner Lives of Women provided an eyeopening counterpoint, with simple revelations for men that explained the seemingly mysterious ways of the opposite sex.

Together at Last

Now these classics have been updated with insights from the latest brain research and with additional data. The new editions are brought together in the For Couples Only boxed set, providing the perfect resource to help you understand relationship-changing insights about the woman or man in your life.

Each volume is based on input from more than a thousand members of the opposite sex—including an unprecedented nationwide survey and hundreds of personal interviews. This innovative approach yields candid and surprising answers that reveal what you don’t “get” about your significant other—answers that person deeply wishes you knew. It also produces simple but groundbreaking awareness of how you can best love and support the one you care about most.

So whether you are newly dating or have been married fifty years, get ready to know each other in a whole new way. The adventure is just beginning!

Perfect for : Personal Use, For couples, for newly-weds, for engaged couples, for church bible-study class, engagement gift, wedding giftIn a nutshell: For Couples Only is actually a set of books: For Women Only and For Men Only, which have been designed to help you understand your partner better. The books were written and based on input that was gathered by the authors from over 1000 surveys (each). We tend to make assumptions, and sometimes what we believe is actually far from reality. These two books are meant to be read by each partner, and are written in an easy-to-read format with great insight throughout. I was simply amazed at some of the survey results - many of the answers were the opposite of what I would have thought, which has led me to have a better understanding of why my husband and I understand the same comment two different ways sometimes. I've been able to learn a lot more about my husband by reading For Women Only. Read this book and find out what you didn't know about your other half - you might be surprised!Extended Review: One key note I learned by reading the front of For Men Only (Yes - I peeked!) is that Shaunti took the time to write women a quick note inside the men's book, and it basically shares that we process the information we are learning in different ways, and while many women will learn something and then talk to their spouse about it as a way to better-understand what they are reading, men do the opposite - they like to think about what they are reading until they understand it, and THEN they will talk about it. Knowing that made reading and discussing the book easier for me, because I didn't take my husband's quietness as non-interest.Content: The books come in a nice case that includes a Couples Conversation StarterFormat: The information they are sharing is straight and to the point, with examples and graphs that show the survey results. The authors take the time to explain why the topic is important and how it affects our significant other.Readability: Very easy to read and understand. Each topic/chapter is easy a quick and easy read, although I did find myself re-reading certain chapters for my own benefit.Overall: I think these books are wonderful for anyone in a relationship. There is so much we don't understand (even if we think we do) about the opposite sex. Pick up a set for yourself, and don't be afraid to give a set to a new couple, or one who has been together for quite a while! Everyone can benefit from these books.

This pair of books is incredible at explaining things that couples assume are common sense to their significant other (and really are not)! I will be giving this book to many of my couple friends as wedding shower gifts, engagement gifts, etc!

I never realized how dynamic a marriage or any LTR really is. Because of our culture neither party can stop and think what is really going on with their partner. This book has really helped me to understand how my wife seperates her different lives'. If you truly love your wife you will take the time to read this book. You will learn things about your wife that you thought you knew but were completely wrong on. The book tends to be a little preachy and the authors base their ideas on the bible. Get past the religious aspect which is not heavy to begin with and look at the practical messages being sent. If your wife is truly YOUR BEST FRIEND then you learn how to strengthen that friendship. What makes this easy is the lack of blame placed on either partner. Just simple straight forward information that can be used right away. Men don't be afraid to read this book. It will suprise you, make you laugh, maybe make you cry, and make you feel proud that you are the right man for your wife.

Eye Opening Insight On How The Opposite Sex Thinks
For Women Only
You may know that men are visual creatures. However, do you truly know what that means? While we females worry about how we look. Men are grateful that we take care of ourselves, and we try to look our best. We do not have to look like a model to please our mates. Men want and desire respect. R-E-S-P-E-C-T is one of the most important things you can do for your mate. Other topics dicussed are: men are insecure, men are providers, men want more sex, men are visual, men care about appearance.
For Men Only
The Feldhahn¿s discuss hidden triggers and women¿s emotions. She wants you to be active in parenting. Show her you are committed. Women want to know their spouse is happy. Listen, Listen, Listen.
We all know men and women think differently, yet we still fall into the trap of wondering why our spouse does not understand. The Feldhahn¿s did extensive research before writing this book. This two-book set would make a great gift for a wedding shower or for any couple.
