My husband and I read these books while I was deployed. They were amazing and it opened up communication lines for us quite a bit. It seemed like there were so many parts in the book that applied to us and our relationship. This is a MUST read for any relationship!

A great book that every man should read. Period. If you THINK you know how to love, you are committing the first error.

While much has been written about interpersonal communication, many of the existing writings stereotype females communicating with an emphasis on feelings and relationship and males communicating with an emphasis on status and tasks.

Are you feeling "under-loved" by someone important to you? Is someone important feeling under-loved by you? Perhaps you're communicating through different "languages".

Finally, someone (Gary Chapman) is recognizing that we all want to feel loved and suggesting that each of us might interpret "being loved" through different forms of communication--the five languages.

The Five Languages of Love is an intersting and thought-provoking read...comparably applicable to your significant-other, your family, friends and colleagues.

I choose this rating because this book really give me the clue that everyone is not speaking the same language in a relation.

What I like the most is that they come up with real examples on couples that struggle and solve it by learning each others love language.

I recommend this book to everyone who have problems in their relation and everyone who is on their way into a new relation who want this to be their last and most successful relationship.

Well written and wording spoke to my heart and really helped me to see the things I didn't do and I applied the applications to my own relationship and found out that they REALLY do work. Thank Dr. Garry Chapman and Dr. William Wilson who recommended this book and now I'm recommending it to those who want to make their relationship better. TRULY AWESOME

A page turner! I learned my love language and my girlfriend (now fiancé) learned hers. We make a concerted effort to speak each other's language to each other. IT WORKS!!! Best of all, the application is easy once you know the love language of your spouse, boyfriend/girlfriend. Practical application points follow each chapter on the different love languages so the reader can "speak" the right language immediately. This is like Rosetta Stone for relationships. In fact the practical application can be applied to ALL relationships. Buy it. Read it. Implement it. It is worth the cost in both money and time.

This is a worthwhile read. Recommended to me by a female friend who said she has read this book with her husband prior to her marriage (and presumably helped), I who is never the one to skimp on a good non-fiction read, decided to purchase this very affordable and short book.

The book focuses on marriages, but the concepts covered can be applicable to all relationships.

The author cogently argues that much of marriage problem is differing styles of communication that doesn't meet the needs of the other.

The author provides 5 different ways to communicate to each other and how each one is important and fulfills the psychological needs of each individual.

Beautiful and well done.

But how about when the communication problem is not the cause but a symptom of a more deeper underlying problem? It seems author doesn't necessary believe in such scenario. In essence, the book assumes most marriage problems are communications problems. Perhaps.

The author details a story of how a wife with a husband who never accedes to her repeated request to paint the walls in the bedroom despite he having ample time to do it. She constantly makes the request (read: nags him to death) and he never does it. The author sees the problem as a communication issue and provides a recommendation. He says his recommendation has had tremendous results on that marriage (and I believe him), but I wonder if he has only fixed the symptom and not the cause (the husband doesn't care about her anymore or painting the walls in the bedroom?).

I am a relationship coach and recommend Dr. Gary Chapman's books to my clients, as well as to the people on my website. So many folks go 'Wow, I'd wish I'd known that before!' Knowing about peoples love languages makes it so easy to understand more of what they need. In my own relationship I can tell him when my 'love tank' is getting low and I also ask him how his is doing too. It's become a very useful method of communicating how well we are each communicating our love for the other.

My sweetheart is an 'Acts of service' love language person, while I'm a multiple love language personality. Being able to say 'Honey, my love tank is a little dry in this area right now', is a far better way to get my emotional needs met, than to be hurt and angry because he's not giving me what I need. Plus, when our love tanks are full, we are both far more inclined to give more love to the other.

This book really says the same thing as 'The 5 Love Languages', but it is put into a male perspective. I highly recommend reading this book. It will assist you in understanding how to give different people in your life what they need to feel appreciated and cared for. Even coworkers, parents, siblings, children and friends! It has the power to improve all of your relationships if you choose to use it :)
