Publisher's Summary

Women are like spaghetti, because their thought process runs on and on in an interconnecting web, and men are like waffles because they compartmentalize and "sit" in sometimes blank boxes, just to relax.

A great relationship book

This is a great relationship book, really bringing up some key differences between how men and women approach things and offers lots of good ideas.

The presentation is good -- they know they're in a non-print format.

My wife and I recently listed to this on a trip and it sparked lots of good discussion.

good point of view, great tips, however

great book overall, however many of the proposed solution s fall under the religious context, the reading girl sometimes lower her voice for longer period of times, making it a bit distracted... I enjoyed the book

Good content, annoying sound

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend the book but not this audiobook. Pam Farrell's voice (or perhaps the sound system wasn't set properly to record her voice) as it came through on the Bose sound system in my car was grating. I had no problem listening to Bill and I wanted to hear what Pam was saying so I did listen to the whole thing but the pitch of Pam's voice was challenging to listen to. I am "sound sensitive" though so this may not be a problem for most people.

What did you learn from Men Are Like Waffles Women Are Like Spaghetti that you would use in your daily life?

Was a bit of a light bulb moment and a bit freeing to learn that almost all men are like my husband and almost all women are like me and that doesn't make either of us wrong or right. It is making it easier to accept certain actions and comments by my mate and to realize that I might have to ask for what I need instead of assuming my mate will read my mind. It may actually be impossible for him to read my mind though this book has helped me better imagine what life looks like through his eyes - foreign as that might be.

Vital for understanding the opposite sex

As a pastor, this book,is required reading for each couple that I marry. The humor, straight forward talk, and relatability of the authors even comes out more on the audio version read by them.

Superb content, lackluster performance

Bill's reading style is conversational, as well it should be ... he's one of the authors. I lost interest during the parts Pam read because of her robotic, "I-just-want-to-hurry-and-be-done" mono tone. Great content, though.

Not impressed

This books generalizations of women make them sound materialistic and ditsy. If this was all meant for humor, it was lost on me. I don't recommend this for young couples or anyone having real issues in their marriage. Go find a Love and Respect book.

opinion of a marital therapist

I didn't like the dual narration of two people with such different voices it made it hard to transition from one to the other. as a marriage therapist I agreed with some of it but it felt like a lot was personal opinions instead of evidence based. Also for marriage book it felt like a lot of the jokes were not necessarily appropriate, not inappropriate but just not appropriate for a marriage book

Not Really what I expected

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Not the first book I'd recommend for understanding men and/or women.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I only went about half way through the book. Once they started giving dating tips, they lost me. I really enjoyed the beginning and the examples of how men and women are different. There were some great stories and analogies.But it seems when they were done explaining, they were done... I, personally, don't need the marriage dating advice (at least not now), I was needing the 'how can we understand our differences and get past the disagreements about our differences'.

What didn’t you like about Bill Farrel and Pam Farrel ’s performance?

I really did not enjoy them as narrators.

Do you think Men Are Like Waffles Women Are Like Spaghetti needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

I think they need to stick with the premise of what the differences are and how we can manage them in everyday life. And add how the differences of parenting a waffle or spaghetti would be different for the opposite gender parent. That would have been more helpful to me than dating tips!
