Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 2/16/2014

    " This is a beautiful and very useful book from the author of The Five Love Languages. He expounds on seven traits or characteristics of loving people, and how we can better live out those traits in our lives and improve our relationships and our peace. Wonderfully useful book that really dovetails with much I have been reading lately from latter-day prophets and apostles, and Charlotte Mason. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christiangal | 2/1/2014

    " This book is so important to me right now. It is one of the best "Christian" genre book I've read. I don't believe it can only be read once. There's so much there to learn and to contemplate, and then pray about. This book can help you, or someone you love, see in color, or at least that's my little belief. If you don't know what I mean by "see in color," I mention it all the time to my friends and family, and in another one of my book reviews here. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robin | 2/1/2014

    " Love this and try to be this way, but reading his book helps me with it. :) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Marisha | 1/29/2014

    " I skimmed through every page of this book and noticed that while covering such topics as forgiveness and humility he did not reference any Scripture nor mention Christ until the last chapter of the book, where he talks about serving as Christ did when he washed the disciples feet. I am disheartened that he would write an entire book about love and hardly reference the Bible at all. We cannot teach goodness and virtue apart from the authority of Christ and his Word. We have no good apart from him. Though some of what he says may be helpful, I don't think I'll be reading a book by this author again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara | 1/28/2014

    " I wish everyone would read this book. If they took just one thing from it, the world would be a better place. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brigid | 1/24/2014

    " As a habit, I don't read self help books, but this one caught my eye at the library. I had to check it out a few times to read it through, since I couldn't seem to stick with it. But, I have read most of it, all except the end which I intend to read soon enough. What I learned from this book was not that eye opening. I believe that after reading this book another person might see where they could be more loving, but most days I think I follow these principles very well. They are very simple and strait forward ideas about forgiveness, kindness, patience, courtesy etc. There were many anecdotes that I found very interesting, and quotes in bold to simplify chapters. At then end of each chapter was a list of questions one is meant to ask of oneself, but I didn't even bother looking at them. Over all I would recommend this book to someone who has anger in their life, and wants to overcome those things and heal from hurt caused by another. When time passes and when a person is ready to be a loving person, they might find this book helpful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hmh | 1/24/2014

    " THis book is a self-help book. Like most sel-help books it asks you to think deeper and find true meaning for the important thing is you life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Moemartell | 1/24/2014

    " Great book on learning how to live with love and to change the way people react to you. and how to get what you want by showing love. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Helen | 1/21/2014

    " I have read the 5 Love Languages for Children and learned so much from it. I am anticipating that this will be full of good insights. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 1/16/2014

    " Took tons of notes. Love Gary Chapman's books. This one gave me a lot to think about. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashlee | 1/4/2014

    " This book has concrete examples of how to be more loving in our society but I finally just gave up on actually reading the book. I decided that I could learn just as much about love and kindness from the scriptures or conference talks and that would be a better use of my time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nanette | 12/17/2013

    " This book was very eye-opening and even convicting. Chapman dissects and analyzes love, while giving practical suggestions for putting it into practice. I have read many of his books and am never disappointed. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jo | 10/11/2013

    " I think it might have had more impact on me if I'd read it when I was younger. As it is, I found it rather simple, but a good reminder of the sort of character traits I do want to have. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wil Roese | 10/9/2013

    " Good idea but poorly organized and written. Full of stories with little depth. He does not seem to know the difference between kindness, patients and curtsy as he discusses them in similar terms. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 9/9/2013

    " Instead of focusing on how to change your bad qualities, this book shows you how to focus on your good qualities. I think everyone could use a refresher on how to conduct one's life in a loving manner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Candida | 7/21/2013

    " Another excellent book from Gary Chapman. I listened to the audiobook that was read by the author and I enjoyed his southern accent! This book really makes you think about what it means to be a loving person. "

    " Excellent book! Recommended reading for anyone. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kat | 5/18/2013

    " Sure liked this book. It correlates with Chapman's other book, "The Five Love Languages". It's just nice to be uplifted and motivated to love other people, especially loved ones no matter the circumstance. Chapman is a Christian other who shares a wonderful view about Love (or Charity). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Collette | 5/8/2013

    " His best book yet. This book provides the foundation for his others and gives the reader some real challenges to set goals for improving character traits. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jacki | 1/22/2013

    " Most of the ideas were common sense, but I liked it anyway- it is written by the author that wrote the 5 love languages. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 5/21/2012

    " What a great book that should be read more than once. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dena | 5/9/2012

    " I am on chapter 9,the chapter about love in marriage. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shirley Zolenski | 1/31/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 10/20/2011

    " Another look at love by the guy who wrote the love languages book. It wasn't as life altering as the five love languages but it gave me a fresh outlook on how to better love the people in my life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 5/22/2011

    " This was a great book to really find out where you could do a better job of showing people love. It goes through the different characteristics of love and how you can put them into action in your own life. I was able to see for myself where I could do a better job on each area. "
