Editorial 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

Learn to speak and understand your mate's love language, and in no time you will be able to effectively love and truly feel loved in return. Skillful communication is within your grasp!

A new language that I hope to master

For some reason the first time around I listen to this book I wasn't as impressed as I am now. I never finished the first time I downloaded it but I am more than grateful that I decided to listen to it a second time. fortunate for me my love tank is always full but now I understand why it is, my husband has been speaking my language, quality time, for years now. It has been a long time since I've been so impressed with the self-help book. This book reminds me of Men Are from Mars Women Are from Venus in the sense that it helps a relationship and understanding each other. I've already ordered five books and will give it to my children my husband and some friends. I also really love the voice because I felt as if I was in an actual session. I didn't feel he was reading I felt as if he was talking naturally.

Important to understand yourself and others

Being a guy, the topics in this book are foreign to me, but Dr Chapman helped me understand how I need to be loved and how my girlfriend needs to be shown love in a different way. Even though the author is Christian and I am Atheist, this book was enlightening.

Eye opening reading

Just read it if you care about your beloved one and feel like you want to improve your marriage. It is amazing how very simple concepts about expressing your love can be slipping off your understanding for several years. I wish I had read it few years sooner.

Insightful for anyone interested in relationships

If you could sum up The Five Love Languages: The Secret to Love That Lasts in three words, what would they be?

Life changing insight

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Five Love Languages: The Secret to Love That Lasts?

The 'Aha' moment when you realise what your love language (and those around you) is and why it's important.

Have you listened to any of Gary Chapman’s other performances? How does this one compare?

not yet

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Literally as is - The Secret to Making Relationships Last

Any additional comments?

I wish I had found this book sooner. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to improve their relationships and understand their own needs.

Off-putting religious tone

What would have made The Five Love Languages: The Secret to Love That Lasts better?

Lack of religious remarks.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I would have removed the religious tone and made it less old-fashioned.

What didn’t you like about Gary Chapman’s performance?

All the religious remarks made me want to listen to the book less and less.

great read and inspiring

Don't be put off buying this book by the God references. I'm an Atheist but didn't find them off putting or taking away from his main message. I loved it.

What a revelation!

I found this audiobook at just the right time.
This book explains why my marriage is on a downslope and also shows how I can easily turn it around.
I have already started to speak my wife's love language and I hope that when the hard copy arrives for my wife that she takes the time to read it too.

Simple and to the point, with few religious references.

I have already recommended this book to a friend who bought the book that instant excitedly saying that he was in a similar situation.

I now see the light at the end of the tunnel!

Genius!

Was recommended this by beautiful friends who are living examples of what is possible in a loving marriage - they said this changed everything. If we can achieve a fraction of what they have, we'll be very happy - so it was a must read. It didn't disappoint! Thank you Dr Chapman :)

Mind changing listening.

Truly worth the time spent as a change in perception of love changes to a more mature one. A selfless perception
