This book is a good synopsis of Gary Chapman's book "The Five Love Languages". I do not think that this book would be appropriate for someone who is not familiar with the ideas in his book. It is a good reminder or "cliff note" for his book, but it does not present his ideas fully. I would recommend his other book be read first, and then if you want a refresher or guide book, "The Heart of The Five Love Languages", would be a good match.

This is a dummied down version of the Five Love Languages. It works, but I wish I would have bought the complete version instead.

My husband and I read this book and fell in love with it and it's message. I ordered books to give as gifts because of the impact that it's
had on our lives unfortunally this book is a condensed version of the book we read. It did not provide the counseling sessions that were
provided in the book we read and did not include the "test" in the back of the book to figure out "your" love language. With that being
said it's fine for those who have read the all inclusive book, but I would not recommend this version to a first time reader.

This condensed version of the original Five Love Languages book give a great synopsis of the meaning behind each one. I gave this copy to a friend because I kept referring to an old one that I had. This version makes a great gift. The Five Love Languages breaks down how each of us want to be loved and how each of us gives love to others. Since I first read the book I have enjoyed finding out which love language that my loved ones like to receive. I highly recommend it!

It was probably my own faultm but the book is exactly what its title says: The HEART of the Five Love Languages. It covers the gist of the love languages. I wanted the expanded book, not the condensed.

Great book with a good message but I must have missed the fine print but it's a teeny tiny version of the original!

I was under the impression when I bought this that it was the full book. But it is more like a bathroom reader.

This book was a shorter version of the original and just had the most important topics. It wasn't as lengthy as the original which made it easier to read.

I love reading books about marriage and this is one of my favorites! Does and amazing job of explaining the 5 Love Languages but not in a lovey dovey way with no evidence. To many marriage/love/relationship books these day have a big theory based on nothing. The Heart of the 5 Love Languages is nothing like that. Filled with testimonies and stories of different couples who's marriages drastically changed just by speaking to each other with their correct love languages.

If you and your spouse have been feeling a lose of love, I HIGHLY suggest you try reading this book!

BUYER BEWARE!!!! NOT THE FULL VERSION!!
This is some tiny little 4 x 6 inch, 50-55 pages of real text (depending on how many of the pages with a couple of lines that you want to count) piece of fluff not even worthy of putting under the ribbon of a wedding present!

P-Oed? Yes, time to get the real thing in for Christmas? NO!

UPDATE: Fortunately, Amazon is a great company and they have already processed my return.
Yeah, Amazon!!!!!!!
