For Women Only: What You Need to Know About the Inner Lives of Men

December 3

I thought I knew my husband quite well…

I initially picked up the book For Women Only: What You Need to Know About the Inner Lives of Men because of a minor issue I was having with my husband.  What I discovered was quite a bit more!

My husband has said things to me before that I didn’t quite believe or didn’t make much sense.   To hear that other men have made this same comment or at least have thought it has helped me to see certain things from my husband’s perspective — like a light bulb came on!   I can now understand why he says and does certain things and it actually makes sense.  I now appreciate my husband for who he is, while forgiving him for his mistakes and weaknesses.

Instead of being a roadblock in the way of his attempts to be a better man and husband like I unknowingly have been, I can be an encouragement, as I what I can to be a better wife.  I now understand what areas I do need to work on and how to deal with the areas that are not within my control or ability to change.

A few of the marital topics included in this book are:

  • Respect vs. Affection – Which is more important to him?
  • Your Hubby’s Confidence – What’s it really look like underneath?
  • Sex – Some insight I didn’t have before
  • The Other Woman – Porn and even the woman walking within hubby’s view
  • Your Appearance – and what it means to your hubby

Disclosure:  I did not receive any compensation for this review.  I read it voluntarily and do recommend it to other wives.

About the Book

What’s going on in a man’s mind? From their early days, every woman has struggled to understand why males behave the way they do. Even long-married women who think they understand men have only scratched the surface. Beneath a man’s rugged exterior is an even more rugged, unmapped terrain. What bestselling author Shaunti Feldhahn’s research reveals about the inner lives of men will open women’s eyes to what the men in their life—boyfriends, brothers, husbands, and sons—are really thinking and feeling. Men want to be understood, but they’re afraid to “freak out” the women they love by confessing what is happening inside their heads. This book will guide women in how to provide the loving support that modern men want and need.

What’s going on in there? Ever been totally confused by something your man has said or done? Want to understand his secret desires and fears, his daily battles that you know nothing about?

In a woman-to-woman conversation you’ll never forget, Shaunti Feldhahn takes you beneath the surface into the inner lives of men. This book is about the things we just don’t ‘get’ about guys. With findings from a groundbreaking national survey and personal interviews of over one thousand men, For Women Only is full of eye-opening revelations you need to not only understand the man in your life, but to support and love him in the way he needs to be loved. Grounded in biblical hope, you will discover how to love your man for who he really is—not who you think he is.

I had no idea how clueless I was about men until I interviewed a bunch of them for my last novel. Initially, I just wanted a little insight so I could write my main (male) character. But pretty soon I found myself astonished, over and over again blurting out, “That’s what you’re thinking?” So I did more interviews. After the novel hit shelves, dozens of women told me they also had been astonished by what I included. Clearly I wasn’t the only one who needed more insight on this!

To lay the groundwork for this nonfiction book, I wrote out the half-dozen things from these interviews that had most surprised me—things that appeared to be universal to most men—that women desperately needed to know. I conducted a professional national survey of men to test my findings. Yep—the survey substantiated every single one. These findings are fascinating—and they have already changed my life and marriage. I can’t wait to share them!
