Gabby Mom Review:For Women Only by:Shaunti Feldhahn

For Women Only, Revised and Updated Edition: What You Need to Know About the Inner Lives of Men

About the Book:
 Discover the Truth He Wants You to Know

The man in your life carries important feelings so deep inside he barely knows they’re there, much less how to talk about them. Yet your man genuinely wants you to “get” him—to understand his inner life, to know his fears and needs, to hear what he wishes he could tell you.

In her landmark bestseller, For Women Only, Shaunti Feldhahn reveals what every woman—single or married—needs to know. Based on rigorous research with thousands of men, Shaunti delivers one eye-opening revelation after another, including:
• Why your respect means more to him than your love.
• How he feels deep inside about his role as provider.
• What it means for a man to be so visually “wired.”
• Why sex for him is primarily emotional, not physical.
• What he most wishes he could say to you.

Now, in this expanded and updated edition, you’ll find insights from the latest brain research plus an all-new chapter that shows what’s really going on when he seems to “check out.” (You’ll be surprised and pleased.)

Millions worldwide have experienced dramatic change in their relationships because of the “aha” moments and practical ideas in this little book. Discover how to love your man for who he really is.

My Review:
 Alot of times we as women think that we have men all figured out. But I think that nothing could be farther from the truth. Through a series of survey questions the author of For Women Only, Shaunti Feldhahn feels like she has unlocked a virtual treasure trove of goodies on the subject of "men". Her book includes things we didn't realize about them-- their inner workings and feelings that we may not have known or even realized they had.

 The author has written this book to help us understand the men in our lives so much more better and to see them for more of who they are than what we feel they want from us. That they are actually just as vulnerable as us in certain situations and yes, maybe even a little emotional which is a sharp contrast to what many of us believe.

 After being with my husband for close to twenty years now, many of the points the author discusses we have discovered through trial and error. But as the good Lord has given me grace my husband has also done so by giving me time to figure all this out. But if I had discovered this book sooner it is very possible that it would of saved me alot of time and heartache.

 To not leave us women unaccounted for the author and her husband have also co-written a book for men to read. Below I have listed the summary for that book:

 Finally, you can understand her!If you’re like most men, you’ve burned up lots of energy trying to figure out what a woman wants, what makes her tick, how to make her happy.

The good news: success is simpler than you ever thought.  In their groundbreaking classic, For Men Only, Jeff and Shaunti Feldhahn reveal the eye-opening truths and simple acts that will radically improve your relationship with the woman you love. For example:
·   Why she can’t “just not think about” something that’s bothering her 
·   How to get her real answers without games
·   How your provider instinct can actually cause her heartache – and what to do about it
·   Why “not tonight, honey” may not mean what you think
·   Why listening to her feelings is so hard for a guy, and a fix-it plan that works
·   Why her “I do” at the altar will always mean, “do you?” and the answer that rocks her world

Now updated with the latest scientific research to explain the fabulous female brain plus an all-new chapter that shows how to decode her most baffling behavior, For Men Only is your road-map to making her happy.
