" "Whether your marriage needs a tune-up or a major overhaul, these are powerful prescriptions delivered by a genial, wise man." (AudioFile)
This is a really worthwhile book to read. I really enjoyed the various anacdotes and practical examples.
What was missing for me was the scientific and psychological theory explaining how the mind and the brain works in relation to the various love languages punted my the author.
All in all a pleasant book to read and I strongly recommend it.
2 January 2016
I have been with my wife for 16 years and we have had a wonderful relationship but I always felt there was more to the story. After being recommended this book I took the time to read it and now my wife and I are happier than we ever could've imagined. My wife took the time to read it also and we were shocked that although we have always felt we knew each other very well understanding each other's languages has been extraordinarily helpful I don't think this book is only for troubled relationships it's also for very healthy relationships.
My wife finally convinced my to listen to this book (I mostly listen about business). I have to say that I am quite impressed about the content of this book. Really worth my time.
Though our marriage has no issues at this point, now we know our love languages and what to do to fill the love tank when needed. I also bought a printed version for my parents.
Reasonable, well thought out relationship advice. I don't understand the need to bring in Bible references. It seems forced and unprofessional.
Very happy that we stared this program, I see it being very helpful for a life long relationship.
not just for marriage, this can help with business and children's relationships.
This is the first time I hear/read a book about how to really save a marriage. I don't really think anything out there gave me an answer besides the bible. Thank you Dr. Chapman I will put in practice what I've read as I've been married for 18 years and my husband and I have never spoken each other's love language.
"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.
"great read and inspiring"
Don't be put off buying this book by the God references. I'm an Atheist but didn't find them off putting or taking away from his main message. I loved it.
"What a revelation!"
I found this audiobook at just the right time.
This book explains why my marriage is on a downslope and also shows how I can easily turn it around.
I have already started to speak my wife's love language and I hope that when the hard copy arrives for my wife that she takes the time to read it too.
Simple and to the point, with few religious references.
I have already recommended this book to a friend who bought the book that instant excitedly saying that he was in a similar situation.
I now see the light at the end of the tunnel!
Was recommended this by beautiful friends who are living examples of what is possible in a loving marriage - they said this changed everything. If we can achieve a fraction of what they have, we'll be very happy - so it was a must read. It didn't disappoint! Thank you Dr Chapman :)
"I highly recommend..."
In or out of a relationship every person should read this to understand the love language of their partner and themselves.
i loved everything about this book. Its simplicity and its ability to help the reader understand how to apply the principles of the five love languages. i also really enjoyed the stories and real life examples. i am truly grateful because i now know how to speak my partners primary love language and i have discoverd mine.
"Mind changing listening."
Truly worth the time spent as a change in perception of love changes to a more mature one. A selfless perception
