" "Whether your marriage needs a tune-up or a major overhaul, these are powerful prescriptions delivered by a genial, wise man." (AudioFile)
You don't need to have trouble in your marriage to benefit from this book. It helps you understand your spouse better and teaches you how to communicate with them in a way that feeds their soul. You benefit from this in every aspect of your life ! Also helps in communication with children, patents and others. Must read!
Evil is as Evil does.
As far as the narration goes it is a little distracting and hard to get past the accent at first. Aside from that the religious undertones are one other aspect I could have done without.
Those are the only negatives. I feel the book was well written and does its job through story and dialogue to make the point very clear. I feel these are notions we should instinctively know already or at the very least be taught at a young age but are not.
I just listened to the book and have not yet had time to see results in my relationship, but I cannot imagine that if used properly this book would not be able to help even if not in this relationship but in the future if this is not the right one.
Please read with an open mind and not just thinking you are reading a self help book, it is more of a guide to life from the view of psychology and science. We are humans with needs, use this book to help meet them.
A book that everyone must read. Understanding my love language helped me realize what I need to be happy in a relationship. I'm currently single and chose to read this book after a bad breakup and found what I hope will help me to find a successful relationship one day.
Eye-opening. I've already recommended this book to others.
There is some emphasis on religion, which typically turns me off, but it was infrequent and light enough that it didn't bother me.
"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.
"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.
"Mind changing listening."
Truly worth the time spent as a change in perception of love changes to a more mature one. A selfless perception
"Brilliant for any relationship"
As a counsellor I now use this language within the counselling room. Dealing with couples can be deep as there is more to issues than just the different ways to show love but this really helps and is a great tool for all counsellors when some of the deeper attachment stuff has been covered.
Simple yet powerful way to understand how love can growth and fade in relationships. It's so obvious, once you know, but none of us seem to work it out on our own! Highly recommended.
"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!!!!
This audiobook is inspirational, a must for any relationship.
The principles seem really simple, are easy to apply and sound very effective.
The book is short, but there is lots of very helpful information and many interesting case examples.
I have heard many people talk about this book and can now recommend it, as it is very, very good.
love it love it
I will recommend this book to everyone
it's the best book I have read for the year so far.
"100% think every couple should read this book"
The languages described are so simple and we already use them but maybe no aware of it. The tools can be used in other relationships as well - friendship, with work colleagues, children and basically any human being. Love it!
