The Truth About Dating, Love, & Just Being Friends - By Chad Eastham

I reviewed this book for Thomas Nelson to receive a free copy. This is a book to give teenagers real facts and faith based advice about the topics of dating, love and just being friends, just like the title suggests.  The book includes advice, statistics, quizzes, and a few fill in the blank exercises. The information was good, but I really enjoyed Eastham's style and thought his wit and personality would speak to teens at a level they would understand. I also liked the random facts at the start of each chapter. This book would be a good starting point to discuss real issues teens are facing.  I would recommend teenagers read a book like this before they start dating.
Disclaimer: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their Book Review Blogger program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

  1. This is an informative book, packed with humor and I wish this book had been around when I was a teenager. Eastham presents answers to typical questions in a normal, down-to-earth fashion that I think is quite palatable to teens. He presents Biblical principles without being preachy. My favorite part is when he addressed the issue of a lot of teens being miserable and suffering through high school. Eastham gave practical advice about what makes happy people happy and how to be positive. This book was an enjoyable read that I didn't want to put down. He answers questions I remember having, I just wish someone had delivered the answers the way he does. Not only will I be recommending this book to anyone with teens, works with teens, but also a few who just left their teenage years and it will become a permanent part of my library. I look forward to passing it along to my daughters when they enter their teens.
