" "Whether your marriage needs a tune-up or a major overhaul, these are powerful prescriptions delivered by a genial, wise man." (AudioFile)
whether your single or married. this book is a great way to understand how love is perceived and received by others. there is a good reason why this books keeps increasing in sales year after year, you will want to share this with everyone once you've read it!
The concepts discussed in The Five Love Languages reduces seemingly insurmountable marriage woes to simple prescriptions for healing even if the process may at times be very difficult to maintain.
In essence marriages falter or even fail because partners are doing the wrong things to meet the needs of their mates. It is akin to prescribing the incorrect medication when treating an ailment.
When partners recognize their mates' love language and become fluent in it, then barriers come down, wonderful pathways to contentment and feelings of being loved open up, and the marriage flourishes. Deep emotional needs are satisfied, and both partners find the love they sought when they were "falling in love" early in the relationship.
It is like giving the correct answer to every question all the time. How good is that?!
"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.
"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.
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!
