    Straightforward in its approach, yet profound in its effect, the principles outlined in this book teach partners new and startling strategies for making marriage work. Gottman has scientifically analyzed the habits of married couples and established a method of correcting the behavior that puts thousands of marriages on the rocks. He helps couples to focus on one another and pay attention to the small day-to-day moments that, strung together, make up the heart and soul of any relationship.

    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.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This is for very Christian women looking for how to be an obedient wife.


    What was most disappointing about Shaunti Feldhahn’s story?

    This has deceptive marketing. This book is meant for Christian relationships. Nowhere is this written on the cover, summary or synopsis.


    What didn’t you like about Shaunti Feldhahn’s performance?

    Everything about the author and the way she presents the book is horrible. Laughable.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from For Women Only?

    Everything.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm embarrassed this in my purchase history. This is garbage. I wish I could get my money and time back. This is a book for Christian relationships and nowhere does it say that on the cover or the synopsis. The book is filled with references to Jesus, God and everyone the author surveyed was from a religious community. I actually listened to the entire audio book out of sheer curiosity about how dumb this author. My fiance and I had a nice laugh about how ridiculous this book is. The book focuses on having women constantly adjust themselves to meet men's needs. The book is written from the point of view of a world in which women do not work and are generally self-involved and out of touch with their partner's needs. Do not waste your money on this absurdity.
