    Story
    "Not That Great After All"

    The other reviews I read made me think this would be full of great insights. I had to fast forward through the first part, which was a long, self-congratulatory interview with the author. The five languages were no big surprise - kind words, gift-giving, service, touching, and quality time. All five are good things to do for your loved ones. I'd call this a case of Expando Publishing - taking what should be a brochure or flyer and expanding it into a full length book.

    "Weathered advice, but relevant nonetheless"
    What did you love best about The Five Love Languages: The Secret to Love That Lasts?

    I always like it when an author narrates their own book, as it adds that extra spark to the audiobook. I am also a fan of Dr. Chapman's accent!


    Any additional comments?

    The advice here is a unique look relationships, and although some of the advice is a little outdated, much of it is still relevant. I have found that the best way to approach the languages is to take time to use all of them in unison, changing the degree of each depending on your spouse.

    Story
    "Zig Ziglar Meets Dr Phil"

    Excellent material. Content gets five stars. Useful suggestions for improving relationships between spouses with concrete examples. The suggestions can be put into effect immediately. No "pointy-headed intellectualism" or citations to academic studies like John Gottman, just easily-understood, practical advice. One star for the narration. Dr. Chapman has a very strong regional accent which I found distracting. I suffer from a strong regional accent myself and have been advised to seek a voice coach for those occasions when I must speak publicly outside my region. The audiobook would have been stronger if a professional narrator had been used. The introductory talk-show style interview in the opening 20 minutes was a complete waste of time and should have been cut. If you can focus on the content and ignore the narration, this volume is one of the few worthwhile self-help books I have found. Chapman should fire Oasis Audio and find another producer.

    Story
    "Very Enlightening"

    This book helped me so much to understand what my love language is and how I need to be loved. I also had my husband take the assessment and it showed that his primary love language is physical touch and secondary is words of affirmation. Now I make sure that I give him plenty of back rubs and hand holding and thank him for the specific things that he does for me and for the children. It has made a world of difference.

    I think sometimes we know we love a person we just don't know how to express that to them in the way that they need us too. This book showed us both how to love each other in our own language and we are back to having a wonderful more intimate marriage.
