Two things worth noting about this book:
1) While it is apparent that the authors are Christian and that obviously influences the content, it is not overtly religious and as such I don't think that even non-religious folks would be put off by the very occasional reference to their Christian worldview.
2) This book is stated to be written for teens, and some of the style of the writing is definitely geared towards the younger set, but I find the content is good for any age group as the principles are universal and ageless.
I really enjoyed reading through this book. Not only did it help me understand why girls act the way they do, but I also learned alot about my guy friends, and how our actions come across. The book is also pretty easy to follow. Instead of just a bunch of psychology and philosophical mind twisting junk, Chad explains some basic differences in a way that I can understand, like humor and football. The whole waffles and spaghetti thing totally makes sense to me. I just really liked this book.
I am going to talk to my youth pastor and see if we can use this for our next group discussion.
For my part, I'm not overly crazy about books that make such sweeping generalizations about gendered behavior, but on the other hand, a book with a ton of subtlety would not have been nearly as readable. For a starter introduction to personalities, I think this book is fine. Honestly, I think that for a young person even to get the idea that not everyone ticks in the same way is a valuable message!
Great book; does exactly what it sets out to do.
