I've been in the professional sales arena for nearly a decade. This book was recommended to me, not to improve or work on a relationship, but to better communicate with prospects when making a sale. In my opinion, the title is a little misleading, not only will this improve your relationship with your loved ones, but it can be used to better communicate with employees and inspire thoes around you into action.

The Language of Love, is about word pictures. We all think in pictures, not letters. If I were to say the word "Dog" you don't think "D. O. G." You probably picure your dog, or one that you had as a child. If I say black, one eyed, 3 legged dog. That image on the inside of you changed.

If you have someone in your life, that may be hard headed, or just obtuse when it comes to your feelings, this book will help you visually explain how you feel. For me, I have been able to create an emotional response from my customers merly by telling a story, instead of just spouting off facts. Don't just read this book for the sake of reading it, study what it says and follow through. It will change your life.
