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."

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
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.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
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.

Listen, if you want your kids to grow up and have a healthy relationship in a marriage don't buy this book. I happened to pick it up at my churches library and the amount of scientific errors and misunderstanding of human sexuality that is in this book is absolutely mind numbing. I have been doing extensive research on human sexuality for about 2 years, and most of the claims in this book is old fashioned and put on the believe that men and women are practically 2 different creatures. It claims that women during sex release oxycontin which is the bonding chemical or the "love" chemical and that it only releases when giving birth or when having sex for women. Listen people, when you hug somebody, kiss somebody, or do anything intimate with somebody, you release oxycontin, and women AND men both release it. If men didn't have oxycontin in there system then spousal rape would have been the norm for reproduction for all of human history. The books also claims that in a marriage "Men give love for sex, and women give sex for love" and claims this to be scientific fact and that if couples live by this exchange then everything will work out fine. This to me is an absolutely disgusting and depressing view of what a marriage should be. Men by all means have the ability to love and be emotionally intimate, and women (who have just as strong if not a higher sex drive then men) lust and desire sexual intimacy too. On top of that the author doesn't even have any prerequisites to be able to teach about these topics, with pretty much no degree in these sort of subjects such as human psychology, and there sources are absolute crap. I would never trust someone like James Dobson as a source for human sexuality. There are so many other errors in this book that are just flat out ridicules.Read more ›
