Innovative Book Blows Away Women's Understanding of Men

Only a woman could write this book, because only a woman can understand what women just don't 'get' about men. Like many women, happily married author and newspaper columnist Shaunti Feldhahn thought she understood men, but following an eye-opening experience of interviewing men on some intimate subjects, she recognized seven things that women fundamentally don't understand. She confirmed her findings with a ground breaking national survey and interviews of over one thousand men. Shaunti found there is, in fact, a huge difference between what most women think they understand about their men, and what is really going on in their man's inner thought life. And if a relationship is to thrive, women's eyes must be opened to how men are wired.

The results of the national survey and the astonishing, candid quotes from the men themselves, have been poured into the innovative book, For Women Only: What You Need to Know About the Inner Lives of Men. These truths reveal what is going on deep beneath the surface in the lives of men - mostly things that men desperately wish their wives and girlfriends knew but didn't know how to explain. Throughout the book Shaunti shares these insights and provides practical advice to help women who want closer, more intimate relationships.

Seven key revelations are shared in For Women Only, which takes issues from a vague surface level to the real core of a man's inner thoughts, dreams and fears. Here are three such examples:

Our Surface Understanding            What That Means In Practice

"Men need respect"                          Men would rather feel unloved than                         
                                                         inadequate and disrespected.

"Men are insecure"                          Despite their "in control" exterior, men often                         
                                                         feel like impostors and are insecure that their
                                                         inadequacies will be discovered.

"Men want more sex"                       A woman's sexual desire for her husband                         
                                                         profoundly affects his sense of well-being
                                                         and confidence in all areas of his life.

For Women Only is a valuable resource for women. Whether they've been dating for three months or married for thirty years, it is sure to catalyze healthier relationships with the men in their lives. As Beth Moore says: "What an important book!"
