Publisher's Summary

Discover the truth he wants you to know! The man in your life is keeping secrets. They’re so deep inside he barely knows they're there, much less how to talk to you about them. Yet he genuinely wants you to "get" him - to understand his inner life, his fears, his needs.... In her landmark best seller 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 already experienced dramatic change in their relationships because of the "aha!" moments and practical ideas in this little audiobook. Discover how to love your man for who he really is - not who you think he is.

Life changing

Have your husband read "For Men Only" and the wife reads "For Women Only" at the same time. These books do a fantastic job of telling us bluntly what we are not understanding about the opposite sex. You will have so many ah-ha! moments while reading this. It completely changed our marriage. My husband I have not fought since we read these books about 4 months ago because we have such a better understanding of eachother.

Wow, I Didn't Know

This book had great insight on theories I've heard before. This included practical insight that brought those theories home. The author was funny and real. I highly recommend this book.

Help for both Women and Men!!

as a man reading this for the woman in my life, I was astonished at truly how accurate it all was! I also learned some things I did not know about myself! This book should be a must read for all couples entering into marriage for the first time, or more!

I'm Hopeful For The Future

I haven't had my wife read this yet but I have high hopes that at the very least she'll understand me better. As weird as it may seem I understand myself better after reading this, on top of just knowing so many others think and feel the same way. I'm not religions, and while there are some religious undertones to this book I didn't find them too detracting to overall point of the book. There are a few points where you may stop and think this is grossly one sided, but the companion book is the yin to this books yang. So please keep that in mind as you read. also if your like me remember you're reading this because you want a better relationship for your loved one and you. If you retreat into yourself and become defensive it will be hard to accept some thinks as truths. I feel hopeful for the future and I hope this book can provide you with the same.

Passionate and Well Thought Out

What made the experience of listening to For Women Only, Revised and Updated Edition the most enjoyable?

The author was also the narrator, which made listening great.

What did you learn from For Women Only, Revised and Updated Edition that you would use in your daily life?

I mostly got this since I wasn't meeting my hubbys sexual needs, but wanted to. This book really opened my eyes, and has made things much better between us. He is way happier now.

Any additional comments?

Women: You think you know how men think, but this book will open your eyes and probably answer alot of questions and cause you to ask alot more to your hubby. Totally a game changer.

This is not dogma but an excellent read!

Whenever consuming new information you never need to feel like it’s dogma and has to be followed to a T. Her religious interpretations were not for me and I disagree with putting faith into god because I believe you should put faith into yourself to align with yourself to not worry or to support someone with love. Other advice such as men’s value on looks I think was slightly misconstrued by the interpretation that it’s her looks that are what matter. What really matters to men isn’t that you look pretty all the time but that you love and value yourself enough to want to feel good and look good and work on yourself and take care of yourself. I just thought that part might get understood that it’s at the surface level looks yes but deeper meaning it’s his desire to have a high value woman who cares and loves herself enough to take care of her health wellbeing and even appearance that makes her feel beautiful

Eye opening

I was unsure at the beginning but the author provided many useful tips that I will put into practice in future. The book does refer to Christianity at times but not so much that it alienates non Christians

Changed my marriage

Was recommended this book through online friend, my marriage has not been good for a long time & we never really communicated & were getting to the stage of just being. This has allowed me to see things from his side & just be patient!
We are now talking & enjoying each other’s company again.
Thank you Shaunti, you are amazing
