In a nutshell: For Couples Only is actually a set of books: For Women Only and For Men Only, which have been designed to help you understand your partner better. The books were written and based on input that was gathered by the authors from over 1000 surveys (each). We tend to make assumptions, and sometimes what we believe is actually far from reality. These two books are meant to be read by each partner, and are written in an easy-to-read format with great insight throughout. I was simply amazed at some of the survey results - many of the answers were the opposite of what I would have thought, which has led me to have a better understanding of why my husband and I understand the same comment two different ways sometimes. I've been able to learn a lot more about my husband by reading For Women Only. Read this book and find out what you didn't know about your other half - you might be surprised!
Extended Review: One key note I learned by reading the front of For Men Only (Yes - I peeked!) is that Shaunti took the time to write women a quick note inside the men's book, and it basically shares that we process the information we are learning in different ways, and while many women will learn something and then talk to their spouse about it as a way to better-understand what they are reading, men do the opposite - they like to think about what they are reading until they understand it, and THEN they will talk about it. Knowing that made reading and discussing the book easier for me, because I didn't take my husband's quietness as non-interest.Read more ›
For either gender, this set seems to be the closest thing imaginable to an "owner's manual" to the opposite gender. I wish I'd had this available years ago, to avoid some of those situations when walking on eggshells seemed inevitable. I've always believed in respecting the differences between people, but it's exponentially easier when you know precisely what the differences are!
Without trivializing any one trait, this married couple co-authors a simply & factually written guide to understanding the psyche of your significant other. I can't imagine how much good they have done for couples who read these volumes. I bet most readers get only a few pages in before exclaiming "WOW," because it's rare that the other gender will open up so completely and so fearlessly to give us a clear glimpse inside their psychological map. After I received my copy, I read both volumes, discussed them with my boyfriend, then lent them to his daughter. I hope to share this treasure with many more people!
The volume about men began accidentally, when the author discovered (while researching a novel) that her understanding of the male psyche was much less deep than she thought, and began to see her research as more applicable to a self-help book than a fictional story. Promising anonymity encouraged several male acquaintances to level with her, and she discovered a new understanding of "normal" for a man's inner world.Read more ›
