What I'm Reading: For Women Only in the work place
Shaunti Feldhahn is the Best- Selling author of “For Women Only.” The book is all about how men think in the work place. The book is very insightful about the expectations and perceptions of men at work. Whether you work in a small business, large business, ministry or any work place, you will find this book to valuable. This book helps distinguish for a female what is business, not personal, which is sometimes for women to understand. Feldhahn has spent over eight years researching and surveying to understand men and the way they deal with their work.
Two chapters I really appreciate in the book are “How Men View Emotions at work and The Hidden Fear that Drives Men at Work.” These two chapters are very insightful and provide a lot of details on these two subjects. As a woman, I view things completely different and this book made me very aware of how women say and do things that shoot themselves in the foot. It also made me realize how women play a huge role in the workplace.
This book even includes discussion questions in the back of the book and would be great for a bible study.
This book was interesting, but not something that I was very interested in. I guess if I was having problems with a male co-worker, I might seek out this book, but this isn’t typically a book I would read. It is an easy read and well written, but not my cup of tea!
Thanks Waterbrook Multnomah for this free book to review!
