Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bobbie | 2/11/2014

    " This is a great book because it really has valid points about expressions of determining the love language of your mate. I reveresed the parts in the book. My husband also read the book and we each highlighted in different colors and are now going through the book and discussing the highlighted areas. Gary Chappman rocks! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jon | 2/11/2014

    " I wrote a blog post about this here. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason | 2/7/2014

    " The book is a nice quick read; it's very easy to understand with just enough anecdotal narrative. Although it may not express many concepts the average reader would find new, it does help organize ones thoughts efficiently. With a clearer understanding of those things which we just assume we "know", our ability to grow and nuture our relationships (all of them) is critically enhanced. I recommend it to anyone who has relationships... which is everyone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sally | 1/31/2014

    " I think every newly-wed couple should read this on their honeymoon to prepare them for what happens after they stop being twitter-pated. I thought the suggestions were practical and usable. The only fault I have with the book is that he only writes of successes. I would have liked to read about at least one time that discovering the love language and following the suggestions didn't work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elisabeth | 1/30/2014

    " I read this book for one of my MFT classes, and I think that it is something that most individuals would benefit from. I recommend the other versions for their appropriate audiences (i.e., teenagers, etc.). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Legacy Dad | 1/22/2014

    " Unless you discover your mates love language, you may be expressing love in the wrong way. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott Semegran | 1/22/2014

    " Very insightful book on love, how we interpret it from our partner / spouse, and how we give it. I recommend this book to anyone looking to strengthen their relationship. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 1/19/2014

    " Read as a part of my psychotherapy practice. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brandon Byrd | 1/15/2014

    " Pretty good. I've heard the 5 love languages theory before, and the book really didn't add all that much to the 5-minute summary your friends tell you. But whether you read the book or not, it's a valuable exercise to figure out a spouse's love languages. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 12/28/2013

    " Incredible! It helped me to understand my relationship with my husband, family, and children "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 11/9/2013

    " Some interesting concepts that can be applied to all sorts of relationships. I found the anecdotes too good to be true, but they got the point across so it all worked. I think that this book can be a big help to anyone, regardless of where he is in his relationship. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Garza | 11/9/2013

    " This is a great book to understand how to show love to people, especially your spouse. My love languages are Words of Affirmation and Physical Touch. What are yours? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Geof Morris | 3/5/2012

    " I wouldn't spring for this rather than buying the base book. The topical editing is haphazard at best. You could have paid me $5k to do a better job of the reframing than whoever did this did. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 11/1/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth Tyndall | 8/23/2011

    " It changed my perspective of Love completely. It also explained why the divorce rate is so high. It will be something I keep in mind for when I want to get married one day. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Douglas | 6/27/2011
