Yes. Can help anyone in a relationship. It was very eye opening for me. Audio book is an easy listen. Two thumbs up.
This is the best relationship book I have every listened to or read.
This goes far beyond Men are from Mars.... this helped me look at my husband and myself from a truly individual basis. If taken to heart, this book will make communication better in any relationship.
Slight southern accent and relaxed cadence made it easy to listen to.
Thinking about how my husband or son or anyone reacts to a particular interaction and learning to accept that as part of who they are for whatever reason, and being willing to do the hard work that is required of myself to grow the relationship.

The guy who went and played softball after his child was born.
The way that I receive information from my wife about her love for me is not necessarily the way she receive a meaningful love message.
Every married, or soon to be, couple should get this book, no matter how long they have been married.
My husband and I are struggling with marital issues right now, and I am seeking ways to communicate more effectively and make him feel heard & loved. I appreciated the stories of the couples Dr Chapman helped, and how to identify the different love languages. Dr Chapman has a nice voice, and does a pretty good job of reading with feeling, too.
The suggestions for implementing this new skill, and the thought-provoking questions.
Dr Chapman teaches from his own experiences, and uses gentle humor, stories and examples to illustrate his points.
Understanding each of the languages is not a clear as it could be. Spell it out for a funny like me, with a list of the characteristics of each language and how they differ.
I'm in my mid-20s, and am in my first serious relationship. From the beginning, I havent't had a clue how to go about pursuing a relationship. This book has been the single best resource I've found. Even if you think you know how to love the person you are dating or married to, you can probably benefit greatly from this book. After explaining why it's important to love people in the love language that means the most to them, the author gives each of the 5 langueges its own chapter. In each of these chapters, he clearly explains what the language is, gives at least one story which is useful for helping you understand what exactly that language is and how you might be able to tell whether that is your or your loved one's language, and then gives practical ideas which you can use to show love to the person you care about.
Everybody can benefit from this book; whether you've just started dating, or just got married, or just celebrated your 20th anniversary, there is something you can take from this book to help you better love the person that means the most to you.
I definitely look forward to listening to it again . Wonderful readers voice to listen to. Very helpful and insightful on various difficulties that can arise in marriage. I felt like I was listening to an old friend.
I recommend this book to anyone having any kind of difficulty in their marriage or partnership. It helps you to see problems through outside eyes when you can't see the real problem because you are so wrapped up in it. You can try many of these ideas just to spice up your marriage and make it feel new again.
I didn't read the print version.
The 5 languages of love are, I think, a FANTASTIC thing about which to know. Clear, concise and very powerful. A basic understanding of them, implemented in your life can/will improve all of your relationships for the better!
Personal, easy to understand, easy listen
I recommend it to everyone!
This book was a very good reminder of the work that relationships need to flourish. We all want that good relationship - this pushes you to be a better person. To be more in-tune with your partners needs.
How full is your love tank today?
I liked that Dr. Chapman's theory makes sense and was easy to understand and follow. However, it became difficult to always follow the theory when there were too many side stories involved to get the point across.
Since this isnt a traditional story, there isnt really an "ending". Though, it was fun to figure out where I fit in to Dr. Chapman's theory.
Yes and no. As I mentioned, it was interesting, but there were so explanations of an idea that it became too long for some sections.
Worth listening too if you're looking to find out why you and a significant other seem to be "speaking different languages".
