Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natasha | 1/15/2014

    " I think anyone can benefit from this book because we all interact with the opposite sex. Everyone has a mother, father, sister or brother, etc. It's about learning the differences between men and women. Once you learn how the opposite sex thinks and feels it will change the way you approach them. Very useful, especially for your marriage, and it doesn't hurt that it's sooo funny because it's sooo truthful! If you have it on your to-read list, get to it, you won't regret it :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 1/8/2014

    " this book seemed to hit the nail on the head about the differences that men and women ahve. Anyone who has ever had the "are you even listening to me?" conversation needs to read this book "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolyn moran | 1/7/2014

    " the Farrels gave a workshop that my husband and I attended with some other coaches... I'd like to think that I am a waffle, but my beloved consistently bellows that may be one of the spaghetti prototypes!!! I do know that at times it is ridiculous to think that you can have a descent conversation with a waffle. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jamie Grove | 11/21/2013

    " So...once you get married everyone and their mom decides they need to loan you Christian marriage makeover books... Good advice, but ended up breezing over most of the "devote yourself to God and your husband will love you more" bits. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brittany | 10/18/2013

    " I LOVED this book!!! Read it, and pass it on. Every married couple should read this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carrie | 10/17/2013

    " Ugh... men are a stereotype and women are a stereotype. Pass. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tara | 10/12/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 9/6/2013

    " After 41 years of marriage I still learned a bunch from this book. Dumb title, but the concept is right on. It fits most of the men and women I know. Wish I'd read it 20 years ago. A few suggestions are corny, but most of it is good. So take what you can use and ignore the rest! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 7/25/2013

    " Just started this book- i have heard some of the same comparisions before in different speeches. Men truly have an "Empty Box" and some go there more often than others! If you want to read a book that helps you understand men- this is a good one! "

    " OK book I guess. Would work better for a couple who is into church/God/etc. Kind of like the Men are From Mars thing, but more simple. Reading this did keep me form losing my mind on my first deployment. But that isn't saying much. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 JC | 6/12/2011

    " This is a great book. The differences between men and women are explained as Waffles- Men put things in boxes. Spaghetti - Women approach everything as it's connected to each other. It's an entertaining book and has a lot of good points. Definitely recommend it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jan | 6/3/2011

    " This is a pretty good book with a lot of useful advice for married couples. I do think it is best if read by both parties, which is out of the questions for my husband. Also, some things don't apply because Russian men are created differently. "
