Audible Editor Reviews

Why we think it's Essential: In a conversational and sincere tone, Gary Chapman practices what he preaches: clear, concise communication. I've heard from AudibleListeners that Chapman's words have inspired them to be better partners in relationships. What's not to love? —Diana Dapito

    "Applies to all relationships, especially with mate"

    I had read the book, but hearing the audio was a nice complement to reading the book. There are many lessons to be taken from Chapman's approach to communicating effectively, including both understanding yourself as well as your mate. I find this book to be much better than the Mars-Venus books.

    "Everyone must read this book"

    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!

    "Everyone should hear this"

    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.

    "Marriage Lifeline"

    This is an amazing and very informative study. I believe that this saved my marriage and allowed me to view my love ones and my children with a totally different approach. I am extremely happy and excited to work through it and then continue study more of his work and follow his teaching...

    "Great little book of tools"

    Fantastic little book of tools to improve any relationship in your life. Clear and concise and not too drawn out. Not a typical "Self Help" book. Improves towards the end so be sure to finish it.

    "Help has arrived and I believe things are getting better!!!"

    This book is well written with a conversational tone and the information given is both practical and applicable.

    I strongly encourage everyone to read this book because I believe it will improve your life. No matter the condition of your marriage, this book can help if you apply the principles.

    This is just what the "Dr" ordered!!

    "At Long Last"

    I have prayed over the years for something that might help me to be the wife my husband would want, and I believe I have found it. The Bible is my main source of information for relationships, but without knowing the language I was taking one step forward and two steps back. I am so excited to get started in learning my husbands love language. Thank you Mr. Gary Chap.an and God bless you.

    "Life enhancing"

    In years to come, this will be just accepted as common knowledge. It ought to be, because it's so useful.
    A marriage counsellor of many years, Dr Chapman has recognised these patterns of basic emotional need. And it is just that: need; usefully distilling his findings into this book, and identifying these needs as "love languages".
    Some of the stories brought me close to tears. Others, laughter. The magical part is the healing that Dr Chapman has brought to thousands of people and the amazing part is that it's pretty simple stuff once it's pointed out. Even when one partner is uninterested and stubborn, the technique can still be employed. This is special stuff.
