In his book The Five Love Languages, pastor, author and speaker, Dr. Gary Chapman takes on a tough subject -- marital communication.

Who can disagree with the fact that men and women seem to "speak a different language?" However, the author believes that understanding your partner's needs and how to fulfill them, is crucial for a happy relationship. In the book, The Five Love Languages, Chapman takes the listener through exercises that helps pinpoint your personal love languages and those of your partner. By mastering your knowledge of these five: words of affirmation, physical touch, acts of service, quality time and receiving gifts, you can give your spouse the kind of love he or she needs.

According to Dr. Chapman, each individual has a primary love language and two or more secondary languages. Since a primary love language rarely changes during an adult's life, knowing your spouse's personal preferences could revolutionize how you demonstrate your love. Chapman also explains, in detail, how expressing your love in a meaningful way can heal past wounds and build a stronger marriage.

Dr. Chapman's bestselling book has a global audience. Chapman has presented his innovative studies to the NATO forces in Germany and he has highlighted seminars and conferences in countries like Singapore, Africa, England and Saudi Arabia. When he is not speaking, he and his wife Karolyn pastor Calvary Baptist Church in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

The author narrates this work, presenting it in an authenticate, easy-to-understand format. Listeners are encouraged to follow along and take notes.

Dr. Gary Chapman identifies five basic languages of love and then guides couples towards a better understanding of their unique languages of love. 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!
