Summary

We all know that the greatest commandment is to love. However, relatively few of us know how to express our love in the heart language of our family and friends. Fortunately, in The Five Love Languages Gary Chapman identifies the five primary love languages and teaches us how to use these languages to express our love.

Good insights but little depth

This is a short guide to understanding your partner's primary "love language" in order to improve communication with them. I listened to it whilst sitting next to my husband in the car and since then we've been joking around with each other about our different love languages - so that in itself has been positive. It contained some good insights and tips that can make you more attentive to your partner. The narration was clear and easy on the ear. However, at only 44 minutes long it couldn't go into any depth. So I'd say get it if you're in a fairly succesful relationship and feel like hearing some useful tips; but don't expect it to help you much if you have serious communication problems with your partner.

I wish it went more in depth on each language

There was barely anything on the sign that loves servitude. I was disappointed but appreciate the overview high level.

Too Christian Oriented...

I can typically get through a couple of Christian references as lo mg as there are equal Buddhist or clinical references but at time it felt like a sermon and I had a very hard time listening to the overall message because it seemed preachy.

At a time I was struggling

This book changed my life. As I was putting on my makeup one day going to my granddaughters birthday party (she was just a child), I realized that I was going to be late. I thought about this book and stopped dead. Remembering what I had read, I realized that it was more important that I be on time for HER party than finishing my makeup. I left and and made it on time. My granddaughter was so happy.. Thank you Chapman for the lightbulb moment or enlightenment.

Loved this book. Made some things more clear. I love the short version for men.
