Thought provoking, if frustrating at times,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Men Are Like Waffles--Women Are Like Spaghetti: Understanding and Delighting in Your Differences (Paperback)
The premise of this book is that men are like waffles- they think in boxes, that is, they can only efficiently think about one subject or category at a time; and that women are like spaghetti- they think about everything in an interconnected manner.
Before I say anything else, reader be warned that this review is based on my own tastes and preferences, and is not necessarily unbiased.
I hate generalizations and this book is full of them, from the title to the marriage jokes. The extent of generalizations made me actually physically angry at several points.
However, I do like new ways of looking at problems and this book has that, if presented in a limited manner. If you can get beyond the assumption that all men are waffle-thinkers and all women spaghetti-thinkers, I believe this book can lead to a thought provoking discussion on how different styles of thinking can interrupt communication, especially between marriage partners.

Thank you. I find these kinds of books interesting but the generalizations annoy me too. And the "God Stamp" of approval you can get sub-conciously in christian books can be damaging.
