Publisher's Summary

Communication between couples has been dissected in thousands of books and articles, so why does it remain the number one marriage problem? "Because", says Dr. Emerson Eggerichs, "most spouses don't know that they speak two different languages. They are sending each other messages in 'code', but they won't crack that code until they see that she listens to hear the language of love and he listens to hear the language of respect."

Dr. Eggerichs' best-selling book, Love and Respect, launched a revolution in how couples relate to each other.

The "Good" with the "Bad"

I have listened to his Love and Respect book and it is also Biblically based. I believe that if you truly seek a solution you could look past your problems with scripture or God and his "commandments" and benefit from the absolute common sense and logic of this amazing education. I saw so much of me and my husband in this book. This book has and will continue to change and help maintain what is becoming an amazing and very fulfilling relationship!

I am looking foward to hearing this book BECAUSE of how amazing the other was. . .

Great Information

Every bit of this is well-presented and Biblically-based. Definitely changed my heart. I have a lot of work to do.

If the teaching is applied, it works.

Would you consider the audio edition of Cracking the Communication Code to be better than the print version?

I don't have the print version.

What about Emerson Eggerichs’s performance did you like?

He has lots of experience on the topic.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. This is the first book I have listened to on Audible so far that I wish I could process all at once.

Any additional comments?

I have a friend who is applying a similar book of his, Love and Respect to her marriage. She is a very smart lady who graduated first in her class. She also got 2 businesses going in the past and sold the property for around $365,000.00. She is lady with a lot of talent and capable of being in command. By applying principles like out lined in this teaching, she said recently, My husband is becoming the man I tried to make him. The only difference in her life is she is applying principles that just happen to be defined in the bible. This lady is watching her husband change into a very loving, kind, thoughtful, incredible man towards her. The only difference in her life is this, she is applying principles that came from the bible. It was kind of sad to see so many looking for help and then rejecting it because scripture was stated. In regards to this book, I listened to only part of this with my future wife. We already got some very good information to make our relationship better. With seeing the results in myself and other people with these principles, if some one actually wants a change for the better in their marriage or potential mate, I recommend this highly. Myself, I prefer to learn from others who already know a proven path. If the bible is part of that and it is working, why be bothered. I think to myself, is a failed marriage or miserable one more desirable than help that works if someone will apply it? I look for the easier road rather than the harder one. I like peace and if that involves me learning something knew, even if based on the bible, I want the peace. I want an exceptional marriage, not just a relationship of existence or worse.

If a biblically based marriage is what you're seeking this is the book to get you there.

I bought this book years before when I was single, but didn't read it until my married. I wish I would've read it when I was single. This book tells you how to communicate with your spouse from a biblical standpoint. It will help you strengthen your marriage if you are willing to follow be principles laid out in the book. I have read this and love and respect and would suggest people read both...but if you can only read one then read this. It covers love and respect and it goes beyond that book. I would suggest this for anyone who is a Christian and especially a Christian woman who is seeking to have a successful marriage.

Disappointed

was disappointed, the book quoted way too much scripture from the bible, you hear more scripture than you do the actual book. Lost interest very quickly into the book.

Too slow to get to the point

This is more about religious and spiritual guide than about communicating with others per say.

God and respect. Just doesn't work for me.

I couldnt get past the begining of chapter 1.

"Husband must love his wife.
And wife must respect her husband".

Cant crasp that a wife shouldnt LOVE her husband? Respect sounds like dicplin has somehing to do with it.

Even if the meaning only relates to the signales in ones communication with ones spouse, I still cant accept the statement.

Furthermore chapter 1 starts by refering to the bible, in which God apparently commands that
Husband love his wife.And wife respect her husband.

Feelings have to come truely, honestly from the inside. No one can demand of you to feel anything. And as long as we put (or let other put) someone above us to demand or tell us how to feel, we will never be able to feel our true selfes. That is my belief.

Purhaps the book later on contains good points, I just couldnt accept the premises put forward in the begining of the book, and therefore couldnt read on.

Really disappointed with this

I hadn't realised that it was so very religious in content and that excerpts from the Bible would be quoted in chapter and verse.
The basic principles are sound but the format really put me off
