More About Shaunti Feldhahn
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.

Veritas Confilct Nov 13, 2008
I have read this book several years ago when I joined a book club at church. I purchased this copy for my son as he would like to read it. I will read it again when he is finished with it. I enjoyed the characters and how the mystery envolved must of the characters. It was hard to put the book down. The book shows how evil can slip in and take over your life unless you have faith in God. God is so great!
EXCELLENT Read - Couldn't put the book down!! A+++++ Jul 17, 2008
This book was written wonderfully and it impressed me for many reasons. Mostly because I love books that present the spiritual battle going on at the same time telling the human story. It opens your mind to what you can't see but is still real. Frank Peretti is an expert at this, Shaunti did an outstanding job with it!! Bravo!!!
The book had great historical references regarding Harvard University. I felt like I got a history lesson, philosophy and a theology lesson all rolled into one!! I personally feel much better equipped regarding defending or presenting my faith to others thanks to the well written, well thought out dialogue between classmates. Thank you Shaunti!
These are the adjectives that come to mind when describing my experience as a reader: riveting, suspensful, educational, inspirational, uplifting and full of TRUTH indicated by the name of the book.
Great job Shaunti, your non-fiction books are equally as impressive!!
This book would make a GREAT movie!!!
Can't get it out of my head Nov 21, 2007
I read this book more than a year ago and here I am on this site buying another copy because mine disappeared. I have referred to this incredible book dozens of time and have referred it to so many friends. It was just rivetting from the very first page. In my mind, it is right up there with the Frank Peretti books. The light that it lends to spiritual warfare is unbelievable. Shaunti does such an incredible job with the visualizations you find yourself jumping in your chair and looking over your shoulder. For months it impacted how I walk into a room and my awareness of just exactly how powerful my praying is. While my husband and I were DEEPLY impacted by the For Women/For Men Only books, I also cannot stop checking the book store for the next fiction book by Shaunti. I am done contemplating whether I should buy this book again. Spiritual warfare is such a minunderstood and under communicated part of the human experience. Why do we ignore or overlook God's call for us to take up the armor of God DAILY???? After you read this book, you won't think twice about that. Enjoy!

Fr. Mitch Pacwa calls books like this "bubble gum for the brain." It was very simply written. It's purely Protestant. There's a very subtle anti-Catholic undertone. We're repeatedly told about the wrongs of "the church." The big heros being the Puritans. When did that happen? The Puritans fled England were it was "join the official Church of England or die." They landed here and treated all non-Puritans with the same contempt. Their idea of religious freedom was freedom for Puritans alone. Their idea of truth was Puritan truth alone. The author falls into the same trap many others have. That "real" witches were burned at the stake. Not so. The Puritans burned many of their own. But by and large non-Puritan Christians were seen as witches and heretics. Such as the Quakers who were often branded, literally, as witches.
Wow! Great Story! Sep 12, 2005
The Veritas Conflict is a story about the spiritual struggles college life brings. Being a college student myself, I found it very easy to relate to the characters. I was delighted to see my own struggles adressed in this fictional work. I especially liked houw Feldhahn did not try to 'beat around the bush' about touchy issues like abortion and homosexuality. She had her characters stand firm on Gods truth and not wavier, yet still show love and compassion. I hope she countinues to write Christian Fantasy, she could easily be a Christian J.K. Rowling
