Shaunti's message has impacted my relationships personally, and I've seen some amazing transformation in the lives and marriages of others."

"What an important book!"
--Beth Moore, Bible teacher, bestselling author of So Long Insecurity "In our weekly couples' study we read and discussed both For Women Only and For Men Only over the course of several months.

"Men are in agreement on this one: For Women Only is one book every husband wishes his wife would read! It is a practical, thought-provoking message that will show you what you should do - and not do - when it comes to your relationship with the man in your life. Read it, and you're bound to have many 'aha!' moments that could revolutionize your relationship."

Every time I dig in, my hands and heart emerge filled with tools that help me know myself better and relate to the people I love more effectively. If you've already read it, you should read it again. And if you are just opening these pages for the first time, buckle a seat-belt over your soul and get ready for a ride you won't soon forget."
--Priscilla Shirer, best-selling author of One in a Million "For Women Only is the best book I have read for women, about men. Shaunti's research, facts and stories in this little book create an incredible read for all women. Single, married, divorced or not even allowed to date yet should all read this and come to understand the key truths that will help in your relationship with any man. I bought a copy, read it, was astonished, and then bought ten more and sent them to everyone on our team."
--Craig Gross, founder of XXXchurch.com
"We purchased 9,000 copies of Shaunti's book, For Women Only, and gave one to every woman in our congregations as part of a special Sunday morning event. I interviewed Shaunti on stage during all our worship services. The response was incredible. She has an engaging, compelling way of presenting her findings about how men think. It helped open the eyes of women to the real needs of the men in their lives, and it gave men a common language to use to talk about these things with their wives. I urge churches and other groups to give her the opportunity to share this message."
--Andy Stanley, author of Enemies of the Heart; Senior Pastor, North Point Community Church, Alpharetta, GA
