Book Endorsement Sunday: #3

"For Men Only: A Straightforward Guide to the Inner Lives of Women"

Shaunti and Jeff Feldhahn

Multnomah Books

April 3, 2006

Based on nationwide surveys and hundreds of personal interviews, this small hardback book functions as a man's tour guide through the complex maze of a women's inner life. It tries to answer such questions as,

-Why does she ask, "Do you love me?" even though you just said "I love you." this morning?
-Why does she, out of nowhere, bring up something that happened two years ago?
-Why does she accuse you of "not caring about her", when you're working long hard hours to provide security for her and the kids?
-Why does she say she doesn't want you to fix it, she just wants you to listen?
-Why does she rarely initiate sex?
-Why does she ask "Do these pants make me look fat?"


If you're looking for a book that will offer some practical tips for how to better understand and love your wife (or girlfriend) - this book is for you. Despite thinking I had a pretty good grasp on how my wife worked, I found this book extremely helpful (and surprising!). If you're prepared to ignore a few generalizations that won't apply to your specific situation, I think you'll find this book very eye-opening.

If you're a woman seeking to understand your man, you can check out the companion book cleverly titled, "For Women Only"
