An avid reader of all kinds of books. I love classic science fiction writers like Frank Herbert, Isaac Asimov, and Douglas Adams. But I am, in fact, a "leaf on the wind" when it comes down to it.
Well I'm sort of biased to audio books because love be read to. This reading was great though out was the content more than anything that makes this book great.
This is a helpful listen to tweak any Love Relationship. I would highly reccomend it.
It was pleased to discover the premise of the text was not based upon religion. The concepts were understandable and readily employable and made common sense.
I always enjoy it when the author reads his own text.
Yes, I would recomment this book to others, especially my family. It makes it easy to open lines of communication that can help them feel appreciated and loved.
I liked the stories about other couples that are struggling to understand each other and how they were able to overcome years of communication issues.
I think what became most obvious is that we try to love others how we would like to be loved. I need to ask each person what makes them feel loved and do that everyday.
Not at the top, but it was easy and helpful to hear
I will investigate with my wife which languages are most important to each of us and proceed from there.
I was a bit leery, not being a Christian, that I might find the preacher leaking into the message - well, it did, a little, but not so as to distract from a well thought-out and experienced program and practical suggestions. I think it would be valuable for anyone in a love relationship to think about the various languages and how they affect each partner
I could recommend this book to another guy. He tells you how to speak the language that your wife or girlfriend understands. I have heard for years that men and women don't communicate in the same way. This book goes in depth telling how they differ.
He gives many real life examples of miscommunication between the sexes and how to correct it if you want to .
I think it would have been better if he had someone without a heavy southern accent read the book. I'm from the south and he was a little distracting to me. Don't get me wrong it's not like he's Larry the Cable Guy.
I used the information and it did make a difference with my communication with my wife. But it is hard to keep it going because it is so easy to slide back into old patterns.
This is not so much an entertaining book as a useful way to get the dialogue started between you and your spouse/significant other. Although the information is rather bible-based, it is not over done. I started this book on a two-hour drive and my husband reluctantly agreed to listen. We have a great relationship and have been married four years, so he was probably more willing than if we were in a bad place. His critique was that one of the women in one of the examples should have left her husband, because he was treating her so badly. She stuck with the marriage, applied the techniques the counselor (author) recommended and her husband came around. The author has a website were you can download a quiz to figure out your love language and that of your spouse. This was useful.
This book was read by the author, so it is not a professional performance. It sounded like he was reading, but that didn't really detract from the story.
To refresh my self if I start to wayver
Save your heart
Love tank is full
Learning that their are different ways to love one another
finding out exactly what my language is............and his, and learning to use it
other couples experiences
yes, that many many times the euphoria of new love is expected to last forever.........and thats just not the case.
Learning that is HUGE
I loved learning first off my own love language.......and also was refreshed to know that I could make a change within myself, just knowing the words that identify my interaction with others. I am 61 and still ready to receive knowledge that will improve upon my respect for others. Such a wonderful Blessing....
if it does not actually work, the topics will go along way in helping to improve. just review from time to time to remind yourself and stay on track....off to get 5 love languages for KIDS :)
