Yes the information is invaluable if you want to understand how different people feel loved and appreciated in life. Was not judgmental just very informative.
I do not read well so listening is the best way for me to absorb the information.
This is a great way for people to relate to those that are important to them but that approach the world from a different angle.
I love Christian Fiction, especially Francine Rivers! Anything to help me with relationships, and Apologetics.
Insightful, Understandable, and Aha!
ON, Everyone can use some help with their relationships and I think this is best one on the market.
This is NOT a story but a book on the Five love language and how that relates to your spouse and yourself.
I will be using the concepts I learned from this book for the rest of my life. I would have never known the concepts if I would not have listen to this book and I would have never been able to apply them my marriage in such a practical way.
highly recommend this book to anybody that wants to have a better marriage.
I love how it was so helpful in teaching me how to find my wife's love languages which in turn revealed to me my own love languages. Being able to zero in on our mutual love languages has enhance our marriage greatly!
That it teaches you how to identify what exactly your spouse needs to feel loved which is something that is not always obvious especially if you do not speak the same love language.
No I have not however I will definitely look into his other titles.
Can't understand her? Fear not the instruction manual has been written!
answered a lot of questions about past and present
how to be more aware of how people absorb love from me
great tool for happiness
My first Audiobook with Audible. It was good. I learned a lot but I would have preferred if the author didn't narrate
No Characters. This was self help.
His southern drawl. I would have preferred a more neutral tone of voice. I felt like I was listening to doctor Phil
The Five languages and how to apply them to my life. Which one I identified with and who my mate was.
Recommended for sure.
When I drive, I read... uhm listen. I like SciFi, Fantasy, some Detective and Espionage novels and Religion. Now and then I will also listen to something else.
Think of yourself as an auto-mobile with a tank running on love instead of on petrol. However love is not a liquid but is communicated through five different 'languages.' These languages are more modes of interaction than actual languages. Gary Chapman says that every person 'speaks' one of the big five, be it words of affirmation, quality time, receiving gifts, acts of service or physical touch.
In this book Chapman discusses the five love languages and how it can help married couples to have a better and more genuine marriage. While this approach to marriage might sound very simple, the only thing simple about it is the concept of love as different 'languages.' Chapman makes it very clear that a happy marriage needs work from both partners.
By redefining love as an 'act' instead of a 'feeling' Chapman challenges listeners to identify their own love language as well as that of their spouse. Furthermore you are challenged to learn your partners language thus ensuring that their 'love' tank remains full.
I liked the simplified way in which Chapman presented these concepts. He has definitely given couples a simple tool of addressing issues in the marriage effectively. Yet the love languages seem to work better when it is used pro-actively. It keeps a lot of promise and I am eager to try it out in my marriage.
While Dr. Chapman reads the book himself, I would have loved someone with a more neutral accent. Dr. Chapman sounds as if he has a thick American Southern accent. (I could be wrong.) It almost put me of from buying the book. When you listen past the accent, you realise the tremendous worth of this book.
I heartily recommend this book to anyone who wants a simple uncomplicated way to deal with the 'wear and tear' of marriage. Included with the book is a .pdf questionnaire that will help you and your spouse to discover his or her love language. I do believe that this book could help save quite a few marriages and comes highly recommended.
Say something about yourself!
This is the book your looking for. It is very insightful without being boring. I even got my spouse to listen to this one.
This books helps you learn to deal with everyone in life by explaining 5 easy concepts on how others need to feel loved. Not everyone can be loved the same and what makes you feel loved may not be what others need to feel loved. That everyone in your life, family, friends, kids, co-workers fits in to one of the 5 concepts. I understand now where I went wrong in failed relationships and how others failed me. This book is a must for those getting married if they want to be able to learn how to truly make those in your life feel the love you have to offer.
Very easy to follow and stay actively interested in this book. Dr. Chapman uses real couples and their issues as examples which put the concepts into real life form to use and understand.
Falling into infatuation is the easy part, turning it into the kind of love that lasts....Learn how to make those around you feel valued, loved, appreciated, and wanted.
You know how sometimes after someone mentions something, you're like, "oh yeah, i didn't realize that!" ... I feel that this is what Gary is letting us know. We all know but don't know how to pinpoint how we want to be loved. Gary gives examples and ideas of how we all want to be loved in different ways. What we think we want to be loved, is not always what others what to be loved. It's such common sense, but Gary puts it in a perspective that is not condescending and his reading voice is enjoyable.
I really recommend this audiobook for just a good way to know how your loved ones like to be treated. I will be getting the one about kids soon.
