About This 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.) And now there is a NEW companion video study pack which can be used in a group setting, individually or for mentoring or counseling.
Millions worldwide have experienced dramatic changes 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.

Beyond the Book: For Women Only
I hope that For Women Only was used to open your eyes to many new things about the inner lives of men. I anticipate that once the light bulb has come on, that some readers may want to explore these topics in more detail than I could or should cover in my book. There are many people who have made it their life’s work to cover these issues with great skill, and their resources can help you move forward in any number of directions.
Please visit the Resources for Women page and go beyond the book For Women Only for a variety of audio, video, written and recommended resources on a variety of topics, with a particular focus on helping women understand both themselves and men better or from a different perspective.
Please note that in some cases I have not had the opportunity to read all the way through some of these books, or to fully explore all the aspects of the various websites and organizations I’m recommending. As we all know, too, websites are updated and revised over time, which means a site may have content with which I do not completely agree. However, each of these recommended resources is well-respected among those I’ve spoken to, and I feel they are worth a mention.
