The Five Love Languages Gift Edition was designed with gift givers in mind. If you’ve benefited from the Five Love Languages books and want to pass along the wisdom to newlyweds or couples you know, this beautiful hardcover book with its two-color interior, ornate foil-stamped cover, satin ribbon, and deckled edges makes a perfect high-quality gift for any occasion.
In this groundbreaking book Paul White and Gary Chapman apply the love language concept to the workplace. Want to know how to connect with coworkers, motivate employees, or express appreciation effectively and appropriately in the workplace? This is the book for you.
Includes an MBA Inventory Access Code when you buy it new.
If you have a teenage family member or friend you want to introduce to The Five Love Languages, this book is the perfect place to start. Written with teens in mind, it breaks down the love language concept and applies it to the life of an average teenager in language they’ll appreciate and enjoy.
How do you discover your spouses and your own love language? Chapmans short questionnaires are one of several ways to find out. Throughout the book, he also includes application questions that can be answered more extensively in the beautifully detailed companion leather journal (an exclusive Amazon.com set). Each section of the journal corresponds with a chapter from the book, offering opportunities for deeper reflection on your marriage.
Although some readers may find choosing to love a spouse that they no longer even like hoping the feelings of affection will follow later a difficult concept to swallow, Chapman promises that the results will be worth the effort. "Love is a choice," says Chapman. "And either partner can start the process today." --Cindy Crosby. This text refers to the Amazon.com Exclusive Journal & Paperback Book Set. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Also, the book reads like it’s written for white Christians. And for men who don’t want a partnership, but rather want to coerce their wife into being their sexually subservient housemaid/servant because they just don’t like vacuuming and can‘t afford hiring a cleaner („I thought I get myself a wife for that“).
So if you’re a white Christian man or woman who likes to be a little housewife, yes, this book‘s for you.
Besides that, the book offers solid scientific facts such as man‘s sex drive being dominated biologically by sperm pressure; that women‘s sex drive is purely emotional and not driven by their bodies; and more.

A friend recommended this to me. I shan't reveal why he'd come to read the book, needless to say he spoke very highly of it. He was right, it is genuinely life changing. The way you think about everyone (not only your girlfriend, boyfriend, wife or husband, but your friends, children, parents, the lot!) can be altered dramatically if you give it a chance. It's aimed at helping you improve your marriage, but in my opinion it does that and much more besides.
It should be entitled - "Everything your parents didn't teach to in preparation for life - because they didn't know it either".
It's not perfect; the author is clearly a) American and b) a devout Christian. He mentions the American Dream and Church attendance more than once in the book. You have to accept this if you are neither of the above, foibles and all. It's repetitive in places too (deliberately, I'd guess) and slightly pious, verging on self congratulatory at times (it IS written by an America don't forget) but none of this should detract from an incredible read.
Whether all of the content is the author's own work or whether they've simply amalgamated a collection of other people's thoughts and theories to form their own, I neither know nor care. The ideas are presented in a highly digestible and practical form which will provoke thought and good nature in all but the most cynical reader.
If nothing else, it's such good value that you've nothing to lose but a few hours of your life, with everything to gain if you approach the content with an open mind.
Try it, you'll not be sorry. Read it, remember it, live by it and teach it to your children.
It made me understand better the things that were working reasonably well already and pin pointed the things that needed some attention. Encourage the important people in your life to read it too and life might take on a brighter look.
You would be better served by googling the 5 love languages, considering them for a second, then moving on to better things.
His evidence is literally "a couple came to me and the woman said she needed more physical intimacy, so physical intimacy is a love language". Repeat this another 4 times. That is the book.
There are other, evidence-based relationship books out there. Read those.
It is short book, very practical and an easy read. When my kids announce they are in a long term relationship I will insist that both they and their partner both read this book. As there will be an exam :-)
If you are considering buying this book...Do it!
This book is not just applicable to couples I think this book makes us understand each and every person s language of expressing love ... I've just made the discovery that my mother s primary language of love is acts of service and that was never spoken by me all these years, no wonder she felt unloved..... thanks to my mentor Sir, Healer Baskar who'd advised all his followers to read this book and few others. I would recommend this book to all adults.
Thankyou very much Dr. Chapman
Puts a lot into perspective and it should make you confident to approach relationship problems with yourself and your partner.
It fits in with most up to date self help books. Focus on what you give, not what you receive.
The quiz online first. The book is pretty much a more detailed version of the results you get form that.
