The newest books in the popular ‘Love Languages’ series by Dr. Chapman are out and they focus on their target audience: men or women. The question is, what makes this book worthy of your purchase rather than the original?

This is in fact a very good question considering there are other versions of this book that already cater to men – “The 5 Love Languages Men’s Edition: The Secret to Love That Lasts” which came out in 2010. There are – and this is very surprising! – 128 total books available by Dr. Chapman on Amazon, the vast majority of which are derivatives of the original “Five Love Languages”. Interestingly, quite a lot of the books that are not specifically about the Love Languages deal with anger and apologizing. That is interesting because the only two sections that this book has that prior versions of the Love Languages are those two topics: how to deal with anger in a healthy way and how to apologize effectively.

I’m a fan of the concept of the Five Love Languages and I found value in reading two new sections (to this book). But I do wonder about the constantly produced “new” books when it seems like these few topics have been covered in detail quite a bit. And I wonder at why we would buy a book that focuses entirely on a single sex. Why not buy the complete version and get details for both sexes? In fact, this book at only 192 pages – and that was with large drawings inserted on dozens of pages – you aren’t getting as much as you could by paying less for an older version with all the info.

In the end, I can’t fault the publisher for trying to make more money on the concept (that’s what companies do) and I can’t fault any of the content of the book, which I found and continue to find valuable. I just don’t think we needed a new version.

Heart of a Philanthropist blog would like to thank Gary Chapman for gifting us a copy of his book in exchange for an honest review. This review was first seen on the HoaP blog.

The Five Love Languages The Secret to Love That Lasts by Gary Chapman is a book that everyone who wants their love to blossom to the best it can be should read. I found it so interesting that I read the whole book in two days. The categories of the Five Love Languages are
Words of Affirmation
Quality Time
Receiving Gifts
Acts of Service
Physical Touch.
Included in the book is a set of 30 pairs of statements. You are to choose the one that fits you best and circle the appropriate letter that represents that choice. An example are these two statements:
My wife’s love notes make me feel good. and I love my wife’s hugs. The reader picks a letter between A and E for each statement.

The letters that you circled are compiled at the end depending on which one(s) the reader chose, and reveals which love language is the reader's strongest love languages and which ones are less important to the reader. When the wife also takes the test and finds out her love languages the husband can then express his love to his spouse in her language. For example if her major love language is Words of Affirmation and Physical Touch then she would feel most loved by hugs or love pats and words that express how much she means to her husband and how he appreciates the person she is. Things such as buying gifts would not make her feel especially loved if that is not her love language.

Helpful book for getting a new understanding on how other's "hear" you or interpret what you do when you you think you are doing/saying something else entirely. Always a mystery to decode people, this helps clear some of the mystery away.

The 5 Love Languages for Men, Gary Chapman
with Randy Southern, Northfield Publishing (2015)

I remember reading Gary Chapman's original book, The 5 Love Languages, almost two decades ago. That groundbreaking book introduced me to the languages of words of affirmation, quality time, gift giving, acts of service, and physical touch. Now, 20 years later and almost that many books in this series, Chapman has a new book aimed at men in marriage relationships. And it's powerful and well worth the read. The love languages have not changed, but this book focuses on strengthening your marriage by learning your wife's primary love language.

After an introductory chapter, the first half of the book elaborates each of these five languages. Chapters 7 and 8 are a little weaker, but the book ends on a strong point with two important chapters: one on anger and the last one on apologizing. I found these especially helpful, as they highlight two of my weaknesses.

The book itself is very short, weighing in at less than 190 pages. When combined with numerous cartoons, it becomes a very quick read. The cartoons themselves are more miss than hit, and could have been omitted (it almost felt like they were added as padding).

Two particularly useful features of the book focus on practical application. The end of the book contains a love language profile for each partner, containing 30 questions to each discover your primary and secondary love languages. And chapters 2 through 6 contain a two-page phrase book for each specific love language giving tips to us hard-headed men on how to speak that love language. This becomes the phrase book to turn to.

My wife and I took the profile survey at the end.
