Can’t wait to read

Good but…

I love that the 5 love languages is leather but wish there had been a description of what good condition is. Wasn’t expecting it to come with pieces of the leather on the front cover fallen off & taped on randomly.

Small Book; Big Impact

This book explores different ways we send and receive love. Better yet-- it suggests ideas for how to show someone love in ways which are the most meaningful to them. In a word-- insightful!

Should Be A Required Read In Order To Obtain Your Marriage License

This is such a good book and it explains so much about the different languages that each of us speak when pertaining to Love. It has made a huge impact in my life with my wife. We have been married for 2 years and I wish we would have had this book when we were dating. Must read can't recommend enough.

Awesome for couples

Love this book. Very related. Made me realize some if the things I was doing wrong in my relationship

One book is different

One of the four books i ordered didn't have the study guide. That one has the self assessment instead. I wished i got all of them with the study guide. We use the book for a small group.


I just received books (Nov 3) that were sent out on the 27th of October. They are completely destroyed, torn threw the back and water damaged the package looked like it was only half closed and taped back together not sure if it was a postal issue or the packing but some pages are not read-able.

Learn to Speak Your Partner's Love Language

Requests give direction to love, but demands stop the flow of love. ~Gary Chapman It is amazing how you will just have learned a lesson and then read it in a book, however, there are many lessons you don't want to learn five years from now. This book is filled with ideas on how you can immediately transform your relationship from a cold grave to a peaceful island resort. Perhaps you want to change your life into an amazing adventure or you want to calm the storms. Gary Chapman presents five love languages. One of these languages may be your primary love language, but he takes it further and explores the dialects of love. I think that many of us want all five languages, but there are various ways each can be expressed. Gary explains the five languages in detail and finally you will understand why some people don't respond to your gifts and others go wild with happy kitten joy. When you meet someone who shares your primary language it can feel like you have entered a magical country where everyone is speaking your language. For some individuals, "words of encouragement" will be much higher on their list than "the show of love through gifts" or "acts of service." I had trouble deciding which language was my favorite, but I know I get a bit happy when I receive gifts. However, I noticed that I never complain about not receiving gifts. Gary actually made it easier to figure out when he started to talk about what you complain about most. I normally say: "You are not listening to me." While I enjoy gifts, I'm never demanding in this area. So then I considered "Quality Time." Bingo, I was very concerned about "Quality Conversation." There is definitely "bliss" in "sympathetic dialogue." This is actually a rare thing indeed. When you talk to people, most of the time they are more worried about what they are going to say next and when you find someone who actually listens to what you are saying and responds in a way that makes you feel understood, that is bliss. So, I was very happy to have discovered my primary love language and I also figured out why people in my life don't always respond to gifts in the way I think they would. Some do and they will be getting more boxes of homemade cookies, for sure. ;) Gary does bring out various aspects of love that make you realize that love is not just a happy feeling of infatuation. It was interesting to read about how long the initial bliss stage lasts in most relationships and then to read about the decline and divorce rates for first, second and third marriages. There are examples in this book that present great hope for marriages that have grown cold or are on the rocks. Even one partner can read this book and change their relationship. There is a study guide at the end of the book and the questions can be used at home or in a class setting. "The Five Love Languages" is an essential book for marriage counselors, couples and anyone who wants to figure out how their partner responds to various f

Helping others and helping yourself to understand

I have always been one to try to figure people out, especially those closest to me. A lot of what I find is not in the spoken words, but in their actions and reactions to what life throws at us. This book has been a great TOOL in understanding my family and friends. I not only read it once, but twice, and even at that I tend to go back to it as a reference guide. Sometimes it is frustrating to love someone and not be on the same page of music they are. Try out this book to give you a little insight on the other people so important to you.
