" "Whether your marriage needs a tune-up or a major overhaul, these are powerful prescriptions delivered by a genial, wise man." (AudioFile)
Such a great book! so many great advice, and idea. if you're having a hard time in your relationship with your partner, buy this! even if you're not having a hard time. if you want to spice up your relationship or get some great ideas, etc. buy this! the first week in my relationship after listening to this book, my man is so much happier and so am I. so worth it!!! 😙💏❤💋
If you have a relationship with someone and you want to know how you can have a deeper more meaningful relationship with that per, be it a spouse, family member or close friend, this book and its companion versions are for you.
Th is is the best book on making marriage work. I have read other popular books on the subject and they all seem to be saying "in this day and age a man needs to let the women be in charge if they want to have a happy marriage" this is one of the only books that actually makes sense.
Loving much is not the same as loving well. This book will help you to do the latter better by teaching you how to love in a way that can be received by those you love, that is, in the their love language. And learning your own love language will help you teach others how to love you in a way that allows you to feel their love, not just know it.

I have not tried this with my husband yet, but I did try to find out what the languages are for my kids and I am curious to see what will happen when I put my focus on their primary languages. Certainly going to try to get some clarity on my husband too!
While I started reading with an idea of what my personal love language was, soon I realized that it wasn't my primary language after all. It helped me find ways to learn more about my spouse and myself.
"Eye opening and a must try for all couples"
5 million people resonated with this. You cannot get wrong about it. I have just started to try the principles, and although I have to admit being skeptic in the beginning by the time I made it to the end I had bought in. Many thanks Dr Chapman for doing such a master piece for the well being of so many couples and people in the world.
"Some food for thought"
I bought this book on the reviews expecting something amazing ...
I had to dig deep within myself to find meaning in some areas but that's great right ??
It ignited some emotions and some thoughts about how I view love and how I love myself too ..
In parts I must admit a lot of the examples seemed sexist, I want a wife to cook my meals, clean my shoes, I want a husband who listens to me and buys me things, and I found myself annoyed by those example types ....
A great learning for me was asking myself why I was annoyed ...
If you are into self help and like challenging yourself to step outside of your comfort zone give this book a go, you may realise you have no clue what love really is because take away all the what I deemed as selfish congical requests what you are left with is this ....
Can you let go of your own Ego and live a life of service to someone else because you choose too??!!!
Wondering about my own love choices now so in essence a brilliant thought provoking read!!!!
"Such incredible insight"
every line of this book gives incredible insight into your own relationships
great narrative style, as the combined author/narrator, can put his original intended emotion into the audiobook
damaged relationships can always be repaired
a must read
"its a great book."
i really like this book. it help me in understanding my relationship and where it went wrong. my friend recommend me the hardcopy and happy I found it in audible.
"A one sided take on love"
I didn't enjoy this book. I found it was a prospective of married relationships! The author constantly refers to husband and wife and no mention of unmarried relationships.
The concept of love languages is very valid and I believe there is something to learn from this book I just didn't enjoy the narrative around it.
"Outdated, not for me"
I think the core idea about this book is really useful. You can defiantly see how this is helpful to a lot of people, by understanding what the 5 love languages are and seeing how that can help your relationship. But after that, that's all you basically need to know. As the examples got on my nerves very male sided stories. Woman always trying to get their man to do chores and it's because they are not asking the man properly. It always felt like the woman was in the wrong.
Great ideas with simple illustrations. Am able to apply the concepts in real life and they have further enhanced my relationship with my partner. A must for all couples.
I wish I knew about this earlier. Let's get to work on love and make it count till forever xxx
"An amazing book!!!"
This book is amazing, I picked up very useful tips from the very first chapter to the last one. A book every couple should read.
"Fantastic to learn"
This is the most easy to understand relationship book I have read. Everyone should have this book. I will also buy it for my children.
