" "Whether your marriage needs a tune-up or a major overhaul, these are powerful prescriptions delivered by a genial, wise man." (AudioFile)
A very powerful insight into why people do things in relationships and how everyone can improve their relationship with their spouse, frinds, family members and any other relationship. I have read this one 3 times already and find it to be very helpful in my life.
I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!
STORY - I am rating this a 5 for its information, not for its entertainment value. This book contains good information whether you are married, single, with or without children, and whether you think your relationship is healthy or needs some additional work. If you do not speak the same "language" as the person you are trying to communicate with, they will NOT get your message and their "love tank" will become empty and cause problems in the relationship. The book is short, the author explains everything clearly and gives good examples.
NARRATION - The author reads his own work and does a good job.
OVERALL - Highly recommended.
I lovethe book. It makes me realize the problem I had with my relationship that we have been struggling for many years.
we have seeked helps & solutions to our problems but never been able to achieve it.
I will try my best to apply these concepts into my relationship to see the result.
A must read.
Wonderfully simple, practical concepts that provide us truly effective methods of expressing and receiving love. Any and all relationships could benefit from the information contained in this book. While it is written from a Christian perspective and focuses almost exclusively on married couples experiencing some level of dysfunction in their marriages, the material can be interpreted in any way that best serves your needs. I myself am not a Christian nor am I married, but this has offered wonderful clarity and help to me and my significant other as we co-create the relationship of our dreams together. Hoping to put these lessons to use to set us up for success so we won't need the damage control down the road!
I've heard about this book for uears and always wanted to read it. Really glad I did. Highly recommend for everyone. I'm not married but in a relationship with a wonderful loving man and I wanted to make sure I'm meeting his needs and to ensure a long lasting loving relationship with him
This book offers practical steps to understanding, giving, and receiving love, based on indepth research and real life experiences. It was eloquently narrated by the author with a very easy to listen tone and pace. I will recommend this to everyone.
This book teaches the reader to see a different side of people and themselves. It allows and encourages you to start seeing the different archetypes of people around you with more understanding and a clearer insight to what makes them feel loved and appreciated, and how you can communicate that love in a way THEY will understand and be able to receive. Love is not self-seeking, but other-seeking. This book teaches you to seek and learn others love language so you can speak to them in it.
"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!
