Story Behind the Book

"My teenage daughter really needs to hear this!" Such was the typical reaction from countless men and women who read Shaunti Feldhahn 's bestselling For Women Only. "If forty-year-old women are surprised by the truth about how men think, we realized the value in helping teenagers discover these realities as well," says Shaunti. Teaming with her best friend Lisa Rice, a mother of teen girls and the coauthor of For Women Only Discussion Guide , they launched a major national survey of guys fifteen to twenty. Their surprising findings are revealed here to help girls improve their relationships with the opposite sex, now and into the future.

188 pages about how to make yourself a blank slate to avoid offending, insulting, or "luring" the young men in your life. Includes requisite chapter on losing weight - because guys can't help not be attracted to you if you're 20 lbs overweight - but of course after endless messaging about how to look, act, dress, talk, and think, ends with the completely contrary instruction to "be yourself."

Other messages in this book include that all young men's problems originate with girls; young men are incompetent ciphers who require the love, affection, and guidance of a young woman to be whole; and that young women are primarily mean, self-absorbed creatures who don't understand "the effect" they have on the world around them (ie. if someone "lusts" for you, it's your fault, they can't help themselves).

The book avoids discussing the fact that, according to the authors' own survey, 64-82% of young men are complete hypocrites when it comes to pre-marital sex, while promoting the evo-psych view that guys are helpless slaves to testosterone. Possibly the most problematic message of all is that all young men are deserving of unconditional respect at all times, regardless of their behaviour. Combined with the book's declaration that "82% of young men don't feel the ability or responsibility" to stop sexual activity once it starts, there are some pretty overt rape-apology subtexts here.

An assault on feminism and a crime against young women.
