This book is helpful to understanding women. There are two clear ideas that I earned from this book that I haven’t gained elsewhere.
Women’s preoccupations can’t just be laid to rest by arguing out their merit. They are like programs open on a computer.
You can minimize them but they can’t just go away until the anxiety is directly resolved. The little “x” can be closed only when resolved. Women have just as strong a need to be “pursued romantically” as men have being “sexually desired”.
For Men Only: A Straightforward Guide to the Inner Lives of Women by Shaunti Feldhahn
meb I s This book is helpful to understanding women. I started looking for ways to make my wife remain in a constant state of romance and it has made a huge difference on her quality of life. That is why I am giving it so many stars. The quality of the writing and the insight of the author’s were not close to impressive. They were kind of goofy and simplistic. Its a short book and doesn’t address any particular deficiency.
It is a very brief overview of what women need from men to feel love. The ideas that I gained were sufficient to recommend the book. Don’t look for brilliant marriage guidance here, however, you might find a few ideas that could improve your marriage.
Mar 12, Brandon rated it liked it. Has a onlj interesting insights, and the statistics seem useful. Felhahn have to get over the writing though, it feels like it’s written to the lowest common denominator among men.
As if their working assumption is men are not capable of reading beyond the 3rd fwldhahn level. Meanwhile, the author keeps trying to convince us of his new found authority on the subject via his immersion into the world onlg women, and, well, it gets old.
The book has a really annoying feature of “highlighting” sentences pulled from the text but putting them in a large font. The problem is, the text will read something like see mmen Reading through it is painful. Every couple of pages this strange quoting mechanism is used. I found it really annoying. I walked away with a few discussion points I’ll bring up with my wife, but overall was somewhat insulted by it’s presentation and disappointed by its lack of depth.
Apr 28, Robin DeJarnett rated it it was ok Shelves: If you read my review on Ms. Feldhahn’s other book, ‘For Women Feldhzhn I think you won’t be surprised that the same criticism applies here. This book states up front that the authors’ intent is to grossly generalize their findings, and they do.
I was hoping for more than just a flip of what was in ‘For Women Teldhahn but there wasn’t really any new information here – in fact it seemed to lack the depth of the first book.
The first book highlighted more specifics, like how men enjoyed it when their wom If you read my review on Ms. The first book highlighted more specifics, like how men enjoyed it when their women ‘played with them’ – enjoyed the same diversions, like golf or even just watching sports fo.
I didn’t see the opposite in FMO – what is it that women enjoy for their man to do with them? There seemed to me to be an inordinate amount of time spent on a women’s appearance feldhanh each of the chapterswhich I found shallow.
Obviously, as a woman, I understand how important appearance is, but there’s so much more to me than that. Men may be visual, but wasn’t the point of this book to show them what they CAN’T see?
Both books also imply that any infidelity in a marriage will always involve the man and his lustful, wandering eye. Nen women are visual or not and I know for a fact many arethey have their own escapes, be it through soap operas, romance novels or some other source.
There are tidbits to be gleaned, both for men and women, but as before, I recommend that couples look at this book together, and consider the lens used to write it. May 04, Chip Rodgers rated it it was ok. It’s not that this book was bad per se. Almost everything in the book was already pretty obvious to me anyway, with the exception of a maybe two or three interesting insights and ways to articulate particular oonly concerns.
It seems to me that the type of person who would go out of their way to read this book are the ones that don’t need it, and the ones that DO need it are the ones that either feldhabn read it, or wouldn’t actually practice the advice given, even if they DID read oly.
