This review is from: The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love That Lasts (Paperback)
Dr. Gary Chapman should be nominated for something .....HUGE. This book is a life changer. No, a love changer. Ok, it's both. What hit me right away is it made perfect sense. Then, to top that, by putting the information to actual use, I was able to see real results just like he had written about in the book. After assessing my wife as having the "acts of service" love language, I decided to test out how she would react. I'm usually up and out the door to work before she gets up. I know she enjoys a cup of coffee in the morning and the sooner the better. So, one morning I set up the coffee pot and put a sticky note on it stating, "Just turn me on." She called me at the office and went on and on about how sweet that was and how I scored big points. The guys in the adjoining cubicles were baffled at my side of the conversation. When I told them about the call, and about the book, they thought it worth looking into a bit more.
I've given over a dozen copies to friends and family. I just gave one to my nephew who was recently married. I even sent one to a guy I met on a plane who told me he was engaged. Without exception, people come back and tell me how The 5 Love Languages have made such a positive difference in their relationships. This stuff should be taught in school.

Thank you for the feedback. I have purchased it here on Amazon but in Spanish because it is more economic.

I agree this stuff should be taught in schools, and it'd probably only take an hour to teach it all, yet could make a lot of people's lives infinitely better.

One big key is not to expect this to work overnight though. You can see big changes right away, but to refill the 'love tank' as the author Gary Chapman calls it, you really need to keep filling it and doing it consistently for several months to really make a long term repair job on a severely troubled marriage.

Another good book if people are looking for a shorter read is How to Save Your Marriage - 12 Powerful Tips For Bringing Back The Love.

I also liked all the little quotes in the book (5 love languages), e.g. "I just don't know if I can every love him again after all he has done to me", these quotes seem to come word for word out of real people's mouths and makes the book even easier to relate to as you are reading it. Anyone reading, I highly recommend that you do the six month experiment on page 155.
