Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"I just completed reading Bill and Pam Farrel's, Men Are Like Waffles—Women Are Like Spaghetti. I found myself laughing out loud at the illustrations and descriptions of the different ways men and women react to each other and the tasks involved in married life. I thoroughly enjoyed the way the Farrel's balanced sound research with amusing anecdotes and biblical reference's insight. I know I will be using this book often for marriage seminars and retreats and recommending it to couples to read on their own."
Ronald E. Martin-Minnich, solider, airmen and family ministry

"Let Pam and Bill Farrel share their passion with you for helping men and women connect. Men Are Like Waffles—Women Are Like Spaghetti is a gourmet treat for all who want to find unity in their diversity."
David and Claudia Arp, Authors of 10 Great Dates to Revitalize Your Marriage and The Second Half of Marriage

"A must read for those who want to make bad marriages good and good marriages better."
Jill Briscoe, author of Prayer That Works

This book had me laughing out loud. It explains, in simple terms what the other one is thinking and why. It is right on as far as how women think and it really helps you understand why men and women do things so differently. Really helped my husband and I use our difference to our benefit. .......The kicker is, my husband heard me laughing so hard at this book, HE EVEN READ IT!!!!

I had the "singles" version of this book and wanted to share the "married" version with a newlywed. It's funny and real and a joy to read!

Have you heard the joke that states it would be easier to build a four lane highway to Hawaii than it would be to understand women?? Well, this book doesn't come close to explaining something of that extreme magnitude but it does chip around the edges - and it does so in a interesting and intriguing manner. There is a certain amount of insight as to their thought process and it is presented in a clear and logical dialog - I realize that is a conflict in terms but read the book and you'll understand - no, not women but some of their rational thought process.

Easy Read, it has good insight for any couple but is best suited for Christian couples. Our pastor gave my wife and I a copy to ready while going thru marriage counseling before we got married. Learned a lot from this book that I apply to our marriage everyday.
