More About the Author

Chad Eastham . . . has written numerous books for teens, educational DVD's, a national award-winning curriculum, and various articles about culture, faith and social development.

For almost ten years, Chad has helped develop initiatives, programs, and events for youth throughout the country. While running an educational based non-profit, Healthy Visions, he helped to start The Revolve Tour, a Thomas Nelson Live Event. Chad has spoken with hundreds of thousands of teens all over the country, while still vowing to "talk pretty normal." In his new book, The Truth About Breaking Up, Making Up, & Moving On . . . he tackles the difficult subjects, with his own spin. Even the difficult stuff, after all, is packed with some of life's best gifts, if we are willing to let go of fear, and look at things in new ways. The answers will start to reveal themselves, and that's good news for all of us.

Being locked up in juvenile and rehab for a chunk of his teen years (not a sob story just his story), he found himself working later, with at-risk-youth, often in chemical dependency counseling. Working in behavioral therapy, education, faith-based groups, and then camps from Colorado to Kodiak, Alaska. Throughout college and now almost ten years later, he finds the subjects, the people, and the adventures to be even more exhilarating to discuss with people . . . from all walks of life. Having a knack for researchy stuff, while still "talking pretty normal".

When Chad isn't traveling and sleeping on friends couches, he resides in Nashville... near a fire-pit, with friends and music, while still refusing to say "y'all."

He talked about all of the problems I had thought were just me and I felt like he was talking to me one on one because of the language he used in the book.

Fun, funny, with easy to understand comparisons, this book is a winner.

I have to admit that the title of this book didn't appeal to me and had me wondering if it the content would be as bad as I perceived the title to be. However, I was pleasantly surprised! I am a Christian minister and as such have been involved in a lot of relationship counseling (pre-marital and marital), directing a marriage ministry complete with biannual retreat as well as having a read a number of books on relationships, marital and otherwise. I have to say that this is one of the better books that I have read on the subject. It is entertainingly well-written, wisely insightful and practically applicable. And while, as I said, I read it in spite of the title, the analogy to waffles and spaghetti is actually quite clever, well-employed and helps to make the points memorable.

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 looked at this book for my teenage daughter yet found myself reading every word. Chad nails the differences between guys and girls in this book, and he says it in a humorous way that every teen will love. As a dad, I want the absolute best for my daughter. If you want the best for your kids, you can't ignore this book. Nice job Chad.

Ok I am kind of embarrassed to have even read this book since it was my little sisters, but I am really glad I did. She kept pointing out all these "guy" things that I was doing, and why I was doing them. Finally when she was done with the book I decided to pick it up.

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.

Both of my boys enjoyed this book. The cover and title grabbed them immediately, and one started reading it pretty much the minute it arrived. He read straight through it, coming to me frequently with "Did you know...?" and "Hey, I just read that..." comments. He is just starting to think about boys and girls and how they may differ, and I know he really appreciated this look at how his female friends may approach life differently. He loved the editorial comments by the two authors and the layout really appealed to him. His twin brother, who NEVER reads unassigned non-fiction, was so intrigued by his brother's comments that he picked it up and read it second. Although he wasn't as enthralled as his brother, it clearly was a good read for him, too.

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.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
When I first opened this book, I was pleasantly surprised. It had a funny intro and I like how they showed the many differences and similarities between teenage boys and girls. Their comparison of people to waffles and spaghetti was quite funny and the connection was easy to comprehend. I had never heard of anyone comparing two different types of people to food so this made me interested. Before I read the book, I quickly paged through the chapter titles to get a brief summary of what was to come. At this point, the book looked promising because of its potential and good advice to come.

As I read the first two chapters, I realized that they were pretty much the same. I thought it was just some kind of continuation from the previous chapter but then I kept reading and every chapter pretty much reinforced the waffles and spaghetti theory that was previously mentioned in the beginning of the book. I pretty much got the idea that they were conveying throughout the entire book in the first chapter. As for the advice, it really fell short. From the description on the back, they made it seem like your life would be better and you would understand the opposite gender much better and that would somehow help you. The only advice that I got was don't do anything stupid and treat people with respect which I already knew. Another part of this book that was quite annoying was the author's commentary on just about every page. I had never seen this before and I now know why. It was very distracting when I was reading a chapter and would have to stop reading whatever the chapter was about and read the authors comments which were quite frequent.
