This book makes total sense to me. I now see many people in a different light. I see why I have had conflict with some very important people in my life. I also see how to avoid many of the same types of conflicts in the future.
No Characters in this book just good solid information
Gary is a soft spoken Genius!! I loved the way he softly brought his points to a head and made it clear how this information can change your marriage, and all the relationships that are important to you.
I will remember that different people want to hear you care about them in different ways. I will pay attention to that from now on in a deliberate effort to make sure important people know they are important to me.
I suggest this book to anyone who wants to improve relations with anyone they care about. If you have someone you care for deeply, but seem to conflict with often. Read this book and see if you can't take the initiative, and improve the relationship.
This Really Works.
The author/reader did a great job. The southern drawl is comforting and easy-going.
Once you understand all the languages, how to recognize them in your spouse and how to "speak" them, it was like a light was turned on.
I bought 20 hard copies and distributed them to my family and friends for Christmas. This book is a must read for everyone in the world!!!
This book explains it's philosophy in a way anybody can relate to. I love this book and will recommend to everybody that I know, who is in a relationship. It has changed my view and my partners view on how each other needs to be loved!
I really enjoyed the stories in the book that illustrated the points being made. It will help me in how I approach relationships in the future.
I wanted to listen to it all, but needed to stop for breaks to digest the information.
I would recommend it to anyone
I read some of the reviews before purchasing this one and thought I'd give it a shot...I'm really glad that I did! This is a great marriage tool for any couple looking for some extra help or just to strengthen their marriage. He's straight forward with his ideas and give many examples and stories to share. I recommend being open-minded going into this...he has a unique way of explaining the five love languages.
My husband and I have been married for 14 years, and we have a good relationship. We were not having any major issues we needed to work through, but I had a lot of little complaints that were frustrating to me and made me feel like my husband just didn't "get me". Something about this title caught my eye and when I saw all the great reviews I decided it might be something worth trying out on an upcoming road trip.
My husband was very reluctant to listen, but we were both captivated almost right away. This really answered ALL of my little complaints I had about my husband's attitude toward me and our relationship, and helped him understand where I was coming from (and vise versa!). It put things in an entirely different perspective for him, and in a way that he understood, rather than just blocking out what he felt were just nagging wife complaints. It truly helped us understand each other and our needs so much more clearly, and I really believe listening to this book was a game changer for our marriage.
Several weeks later, I have noticed a real change in our relationship and our attitude towards each other. I believe those changes will last a lifetime, and think it will be great to re-listen occasionally for a refresher.
The bottom line is this: if you are in a committed relationship, you will get something out of this book. I am an avid reader and audible listener, but can say with all sincerity that this is one of the best books I've ever read or listened to because of it's usefulness in my life. You will not regret spending a credit on this book!
Simply identifying that we all have different love languages, & by recognising this we can make a big difference to relationships
how to save your relationship
Very interesting listen, well worth investing in - in fact it should be mandatory for all newly married couples to read.
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.
