The Review is In :: For Women Only by Shaunti Feldhahn

While at MomLife Boot Camp earlier this month, I picked up several great reads. I've already finished one of them, For Women Only by Shaunti Feldhahn, and for the sake of your current or future husband, I highly recommend reading this book. In fact, I've already got a sign-up sheet for future borrowers - shall I add your name to the list?

In For Women Only, wives or current brides-to-be are given insight into the most important things in a relationship that matter to men. Whether you are just starting your lives together or you have been married for ten years, all women can glean something from this little book.

Shaunti wrote her book based off of a statistical survey as well as personal and written interviews of hundreds of men. She crunched the numbers and presents her findings to the intimate questions and their responses to the reader, while giving insight into the inner feelings and thoughts of men.

The topics touched upon in For Women Only include respect, love, sex, burdens, man's visual nature, romance, our appearance, and more. Some of the answers revealed in this book may surprise you; others may not. Depending on your own self-confidence, some may tear you down, while others may have you saying, "Yes, I already do this."

The chapter that seemed to open my eyes the most was on respect. I've always respected my husband; and I hope he knows that, but after reading Shaunti's words I'm not so sure I have shown enough of it. I'm sorry Jake for always second-guessing driving directions or safety issues. I never knew that was a sign of disrespect to you.

How many times have you asked your husband to pull over for directions? Or asked, "Honey, are you sure?" You see, for women, those types of questions make us feel secure, but for our men, it tears them down, little by little, as they feel we have no confidence in them.

This book will change how you perceive what you say or show to your husband. I never really knew how different husbands and wives truly interpret things.  Ladies, I guarantee you will learn something new from For Women Only. I encourage you to read through this book to better understand your spouse's needs and wants.

As a side note, for those whom have boys, this book also has implications into their lives as they grow older. Moms should always want to build their boys up to be great men, so we need to know what they think and feel as well.
