I enjoyed this book. Although at first it seem a bit insulting to men, after asking a few highly regarded men, they confirmed its contents. It was certainly eye-opening and I suggest the book to any women. It's one of the few books I've kept and will read again.
This book sat on my bookshelf TOO LONG!! If I'd been smart, I'd have read it right away, because it was truly enlightening about the inner life of my man, things that he either thought I already knew and understood, or didn't know how to tell me without upsetting me. The author did extensive surveys of men across the country while doing research for a fiction book she was writing, and when she learned things that were true of the majority of straight men that she and her friends did not know or truly understand, she realized she had information that NEEDED to get out to all of us women to help us better understand our guys. Warning: some of it is a bit hard to accept, but it's all to the good... Prayerful attitude changes will help you get over the ones that are hard to take, and both of you will be better off for it! Throughout it all, keep in mind that God created men to BE men, and this information will shed light on some scripture that may seem a little odd without this knowledge about men, such as those in Ephesians 5 telling men to love their wives and women to respect their husbands (there's a reason for those choice of words that has to do with the way men and women are created!) No woman who loves her man should pass up the chance to read this one. Just remember to move it to the top of your "To read" list! :-)
Horrifying! They constantly think of sex, they just won't admit it. Wow. I guess we now know why shaving cream to odor eaters and nearly everything else is geared to sex. They struggle with thoughts of other women regardless of their spiritual beliefs. Well Researched. I got a rude awakening, thinking that as men age they mature - they just don't talk about it.
An excellent book! It is a very small, very concise summary (184 pages)of some of the main things most women don't understand about men. The book is geared towards married couples, but is a good read for singles as well. Though I'm not married it gave me some helpful hints about interacting with my brothers and male friends. The length seemed perfect to me--long enough that the major things were well explained, short enough that I was still wanting more when it was over.

I really loved this book the first time I read it (before any romantic involvements). And I truly re-enjoyed it this time as I prepare to get married in August! My fiance also read the For Men Only by the same author (and her husband) and we both had some great conversations over the materials in both books!
Excellent audio book. I'd highly recommend reading this in regular book form or listening to it to help women and wives understand men and husbands. I would say for the most part, it's great, but I would add that there needs to be more references to God's Word rather than man's feelings. It's good to know what men feel and what they think, but sometimes when we are dealing with people just in the realm of how they operate, we can miss that God has said we all are sinful and so since the author doesn't speak much of this, I hope there's not confusion in that there still needs to be repentance in all people's lives. Otherwise, it's an interesting read and I got MUCH from it! It is a challenge though, ladies! Tamara Slack www.NeedGod.com
