Shaunti received her graduate degree from Harvard University and was an analyst on Wall Street before unexpectedly becoming a social researcher and best-selling author.

Today, she applies her analytical skills to investigating eye-opening, life-changing truths about relationships, both at home and in the workplace. Her groundbreaking research-based books, such as For Women Only, have sold more than 2 million copies in 22 languages and are widely read in homes, counseling centers and corporations worldwide.

Where the "Only" series revealed the often-unseen needs of men and women, her multi-year research project, published in The Surprising Secrets of Highly Happy Marriages, investigates the process of what makes great relationships.

On May 6th her newest book The Good News About Marriage will be released. This research centers around the good news about marriage, debunking the grim facts we've heard for so long about marriage and divorce: Half of all marriages end in divorce. The divorce rate inside the church is the same as outside. And, most marriages are just holding on. But what if these "facts" are actually myths? In The Good News About Marriage, Shaunti Feldhahn presents groundbreaking research that reveals the shocking, incredibly inspiring truth:

* The actual divorce rate has never gotten close to 50 percent.
* Those who attend church regularly have a significantly lower divorce rate than those who don't.
* Most marriages are happy.
* Simple changes make a big difference in most marriage problems.
* Most remarriages succeed.

Shaunti's findings have been featured in media as diverse as The Today Show and Focus on the Family, The New York Times and MomLife Today. Shaunti, Jeff and their two children live in Atlanta and enjoy every minute of living life at warp speed.

Format: Paperback
Ms. Feldhahn has entered another of the "woe is us" voices to the litany of opinions concerning the turn of the millenium phenomenon, this time adding an evangelical (and rather paranoid) "Christian" perspective. She is remarkably unqualified to write either as a theologian or as an expert on the practical consequences of the calender rollover. Long on diatribe and fantasy and short on facts, her book reflects the evangelical tendency to view every occurrence in the world as being aimed directly at them: in this case, the millenium is changing just to "get" those who love God the "right way" (that is, from Ms. Feldhahn's faith perspective). It is remarkable to me why anyone who believes the words of the Bible would be gripped by such a spirit of fear as is reflected in this book. The book also offers advice on how to survive this "catastrophe," recommending such things as stockpiling food and hiding cash in your home. (I wonder if the publishers will be willing to reimburse the interest their readers will lose on the $10,000 this book recommends persons should withdraw from their banks and keep at home.) And while the author also preaches that good Christians should be prepared to be charitable with those unprepared or unable to meet this soon coming crisis, she also encourages these faithful to keep cash on hand to be able to take full advantage of the great investment deals that will surely come out of all this loss and suffering. An interesting combination of advice, to say the least. It is fascinating to me why any publishing company that is about to be devastated (along with every other business in the world) when the calender hits January 1st would waste time and resources printing this (or any) book. Certainly their time would be better spent liquidating their assets and constructing a shelter capable of lasting this apocalypse. Or could it be that even they don't believe this book?

I'm giving Miss Feldhahn's book a full 5-star rating. Obviously this woman was so very wrong - even her 'Joseph Project 2000' [a np org. devoted to Y2K prep.] was a wreck.

Anyone care to watch 'Night of the Comet' now - after you find this book for one penny here on Amazon, of course.

Thanks, Shaunti! I'm convinced that you were led by God to write this book; and while you were studying the EXPERIENCING GOD Bible study, which I Bug, for me, is the best single source of several months of internet reading from the Christian perspective. Even non-Christians may be stopped in their tracks to consider God's work in our world at this time.
My focus has gone from personal survival planning to what does God expect of me in providing for my family but also those to whom Jesus would minister if He were here during this awesome period of our existence. Time is wasting; let's find out where God is working and join Him. NOW

Strong, especially on what the church can do to help. A few things glossed over, such as power grid problems, which most think will be a lot worse than she suggests. Also doesn't touch issues pertaining to what the government might do, such as martial law, or the likelihood of chaos and violence in the cities. Also treats the widespread failures in banking as a remote possibility, again not the consensus of people in the know. The way the balance of the material is presented and the whole handling of church preparedeness makes up for it.

If you're concerned about Y2K, this book is a "must read". If you're a Christian, this book is a "must read". If you're neither, this book is really for you! Shaunti Feldhahn skillfully blends fiction and documented prose to help the reader understand (1) why we all need to prepare for Y2K-related shortages, (2) how our individual preparation can make us faithful witnesses of God's love to those around us, and (3) how the Church's cooperative preparations can make a difference in our communities and in the world.
