More About Shaunti Feldhahn & Lisa A. Rice
Shaunti Feldhahn is the best-selling author of For Women Only: What You Need to Know About the Inner Lives of Men, which has sold 1 million copies in 15 different languages since 2004. Best known for her innovative approach to investigating and quantifying what people "don't know that they don't know" about the opposite sex, Feldhahn hails from a background in economics and analysis rather than the more traditional route of psychology.
Feldhahn received her Bachelor’s degree in government and economics from The College of William and Mary in Virginia (Class of 1989); she then went on to serve on the staff of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee. She later attended Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government for a Master in Public Policy, and then worked at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York as one of the principal financial analysts on Japan during the time of the Japanese financial crisis.
Feldhahn began her career as an author after moving to Atlanta to start a family. Her background as an analyst served as a launching point for opportunities to write about eye-opening topics, from a non-fictional work on the Y2K issue (Y2K: The Millennium Bug) to two spiritual fiction thrillers (The Veritas Conflict and The Lights of Tenth Street). While interviewing men to help her write The Lights on Tenth Street, which has a male protagonist, Feldhahn made a series of observations about men that compelled her to return to the non-fiction world, leading her to further research what men are thinking that women tend not to know. That became the basis for her book For Women Only: What You Need to Know About the Inner Lives of Men. For Women Only attempts to provide readers with insight into the inner lives of men and the challenges they face. Feldhahn (co-authoring at various times with her husband, Jeff, and on other books with youth speakers Lisa and Eric Rice) continued the series by authoring For Men Only, For Young Women Only, For Young Men Only, and For Parents Only.
In January 2010, Feldhahn transitioned from books principally about personal relationships, and published her first book for the business market: "The Male Factor: The Unwritten Rules, Misperceptions and Secret Beliefs of Men in the Workplace."
A syndicated weekly newspaper columnist for six years (2003 to 2009), Feldhahn debated hot topics with another opinionated female, Andy Sarvady, from opposite philosophical perspectives in the popular "Woman to Woman" column. Once appearing in 50 papers such as the Chicago Tribune, Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Seattle Times, the column was a casualty of the economic downturn and newspaper crash in 2009, when many client newspapers cut back, dropped all syndicated content, or went out of business altogether.
She and her husband, Jeff, are well known authors of such books as For Women Only and For Men Only. They are active leaders in their Atlanta-area church and the parents of two children.

Reviews - What do customers think about For Young Women Only?
A valuable insight for moral girls/women Aug 2, 2008
I first heard about this author when my wife was reading, "For Women Only." My wife kept asking me if what she was reading was true. At first I was intimidated by how candid and frank the author was, but I could not disagree that she described the inner landscape of men (at least of me!) with surgical precision.
Since then I have bought the man's version (about women), and bought this particular book for my two adolescent daughters. In our home we try to teach Christian faith, integrity and morality to our kids. This book fits with our goals and present information in a non-threatening and frank way to our girls. They were both startled and embarrassed by finding out the way boys think about girls, but the author speaks the truth!
As a male, son, brother and Dad I want my own daughters to have a correct idea about how males see girls and think about them. I believe this helps girls/women have the tools to behave morally and constructively in their relationships to men.
For example, men are very visually stimulated. To girls this at first seems academic: since bare female bodies (or parts thereof) are in many visual formats (movies, advertisements, magazine covers, posters), girls assume it is passe and "no big deal" to show lots of breast or other parts of their bodies. However, this book helps girls understand what a boys response to seeing female nakedness is like inside a boys mind; something a girl is unlikely to understand on her own.
Boys do not only think of sex, and emotional landscape of boys is neatly addressed in her as well as other issues too.
This book enables girls to understand boys better and relate to them in healthy and constructive ways. My 14 year old devoured it and before it hit the bookshelf my 12 year old read it and is sharing the contents with her friends. How can the mind and experience of the opposite sex not be interesting to adolescents? :)
Have your girls read this book and get the appropriate version for yourself to improve the health and morality of your relationships! The author is respectful but honest; she does a very good job.
A must-have for teenage girls Jul 6, 2008
I started with a book for myself called For Women Only and grew so much in my understanding of how God created men so different from women that I wanted my daughter to understand this as well. For young ladies attending public school I think you could introduce this book as early as 10 years old...with the ideal age being 12. For young ladies in private school that may be a bit more secluded from sexual information I would recommend introducing it a bit later. I gave it to my daughter at 14 and we went through it again at 15 1/2. It is good to go through it together to clarify things and keep that communication door open. Don't get caught up in the world views of dating at young ages and sex before marriage becasue of experience - Keep God as the Authority and stand firm in your parenting...God Luck! [...] author
Good basic information May 30, 2008
I liked the book. It was an easy read. Being a little older myself and dating a guy that's younger than me I found it helpful to read how young guys think. It's very basic information and it's all that we know, but never think about (it's almost too easy). I definitely recommend this book to younger girls and I recommend that you girls take it seriously. It's all true. My boyfriend took a peek inside the book and decided to read it after he saw a couple of great sentences. I also bought "What You Need to Know about How Men Think" and "What You Need to Know about How Women Think", for me and my boyfriend. I'm convinced after reading these books we'll have more understanding of each other.

This book is a good enough resource, but it just isn't all that interesting or "earth shattering". I would prefer to read a book about how to bridge the gap between what men think and what women think.
Far better than the average book on this topic Apr 6, 2008
My teenage daughter requested a different book for Christmas, but when I read it, I was deeply concerned about the negative messages for young women. So I did some looking on my own and found For Young Women Only. I gave her both books and explained my concerns about the one she had asked for. She read both and threw the first one away because she didn't want to donate it and have some else read it. She thought that For Young Women Only gave her insights into young men that she didn't have before, but at the same time, it doesn't encourage young women to try to be something other than what they are. She has loaned her copy to her friends and recommended it to others. This book isn't as extreme as others on this topic, doesn't recommend that girls pretend to be things that they aren't and doesn't place all the responsibility for responsible behavior on the girls. It does help girls understand the struggle that their male friends face and should help them make better decisions in terms of clothing, behavior and dating situations. The book gives realistic and modern guidance to young women who want to avoid casual sexual relationships and to better understand their male friends.
