    "Great way to understand others"

    Even if you are single. I can see how easy or would be to miss what someone else needs because it's not what I need.

    Story
    "Love for Christian Fanatics"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I was wary of the self-help title of the book, but got really turned off when I found out about the extreme American Christianity of the writer. I felt like he was going to sell me something at the end. Maybe my soul back from the devil who stole it.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Gary Chapman?

    The narrator was appropriate, he had kind of a Texas accent, adding to the American Everyman vibe I think the book was trying to go for, so I think that was probably a good thing. If you like that sort of thing.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Discomfort and boredom. I like the principle of the book, and perhaps I could have learned something from it if I didn't get so turned off by the gee-golly innocent Christian-ness of the narrator. It just didn't sound like reality. My love tank for this book is empty.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are Christian and get something out of self help books, if you think they actually help you and are not a cynical lapsed Christian like me, you might actually enjoy this book and learn something from it. Still, I thought his examples of the things people were going through made the people going through it seem kind of stupid, and I believe anyone who thinks critically and does mindfulness work will figure this kind of stuff out by themselves, rather than labelling everyone's love language and thinking they have it figured out.

    "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.

    "A must read for everyone..."

    Our relationships are probably the most important thing in most of our lives, and this book will not only help you understand them better, but will also give practical ways to make them better.

    It's a book about love and communication, and it has the insight and power to be a game changer for both.

    "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.

    "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!

    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 :)
