-Andy Stanley, senior pastor, North Point, Alpharetta, GA, and bestselling author
"In our weekly couples' study we read and discussed both For Women Only and For Men Only over the course of several months. They were fascinating and very helpful. The findings in For Men Only about how women think are so enlightening. My wife and I think these books should be required premarital reading!"
-Comedian Jeff Foxworthy
"When we featured Shaunti's books on Family Life Today, the phone rang off the hook! When Shaunti and Jeff come back on our broadcast, I'm buying some more phones. For Men Only is fresh and relevant -good stuff for every marriage. Read it!"
-Dennis Rainey, President, FamilyLife Today
"If you've ever asked, 'Why does she do, think, or say that?' then you've got to read this book. Shaunti and Jeff not only answer this question, they eliminate the confusion that has kept far too many men from bridging the gender gap."
-Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott, bestselling authors of Love Talk
"Most of my work helping passive Christian men become more like Jesus involves how best to relate to women. I'm going to make sure to keep a case of the Feldhahn's excellent book handy at all times."

"Men, we're supposed to love our wives and live with them in an understanding way. That's the clear assignment God gives each of us in the Scriptures.
