Really helpful and practiacl

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I listened to it a while ago and I don't remember the specific techniques I liked.I do however remember that I was fascinated by every word and I felt like I never want the book to end.It talks mainly about listening which is something that I'd like to do more and better in life and in my marriage. It shows many examples of how conflicts that at first look unresolveable are being resolved by having the couple listen to each other.I also liked that the book is not repeating the well known principals of the 5 love languages (tough I think they are mentioned) but it gives new insights from totally new perspective,overall it is a must for everyone who likes to hear more of Garry Chapman.

Everybody wins when you use common sense

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The anecdotal stories used in the various sections. They're hokey, even corny and annoying.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Honestly, I can't recall anything that was most or least interesting. It's a fairly vanilla, straight-forward, common sense pile of ideas.

What didn’t you like about Maurice England’s performance?

I like his easy going vibe, but the way he told some of the stories, specifically how he narrated the voices of the couples Dr. Chapman worked with, was quite irritating. Just a little too country for me.

Do you think Everybody Wins needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Not really. As I mentioned earlier, it's basic information and common sense ideas. There were some good reminders. It's just not in need of a sequel.

too religious for me

I thought this audiobook offered a few really helpful suggestions in how to work through conflicts in romantic relationships. However, I found them really difficult to swallow with the incredibly religious overtones in almost everything recounted in the examples. The writer seems to know everyone through a church, there is a lot of talk about God's love, praying, etc -- just a constant, unnecessary theme of religion running through the otherwise helpful insights.

I might not have minded it as much had I been warned in the audiobook's description, but since I'm not very religious myself, I found it very difficult to relate to, and thus, not really worth my money.

Great tips, quick & easy listen

This book offers practical, common sense advice that I can put into practice right away. I like the author's approachable writing style, and the narration was a perfect complement. The length of the book was perfect - I needed help, fast. It will be easy to return to it when I need a refresher.

Everybody Wins

It's true...everybody will be a winner if they read this book and follow the great advice of Gary Chapman. I have been married for 35 years. Due to some serious problems I have moved out three different times. Although we deeply love each other, we have a propensity to argue, every day, and multiple times a day. This book is the first book that I have read that really addresses how not to argue. Mr. Chapman gives you several stories about other couples with conflict resolution problems. They sounded just like us! Thank you, Mr. Chapman, for sharing your wisdom. The answers are in the Bible...who would have guessed!
