Item description for Cracking the Communication Code: The Secret to Speaking Your Mate's Language by Emerson Eggerichs...
Overview Cracking the Communication Code by Emerson Eggerichs Communication between couples has been dissected in thousands of books and articles, so why does it remain the number one marriage problem? "Because," says Dr. Emerson Eggerichs, "most spouses don't know that they speak two different languages. They are sending each other messages in 'code,' but they won't crack that code until they see that she listens to hear the language of love and he listens to hear the language of respect." Dr. Eggerichs' best-selling book, Love and Respect, launched a revolution in how couples relate to each other based on Ephesians 5:33: "The husband must love his wife . . . and the wife must respect her husband." In Cracking the Communication Code he shows couples how to speak each other's distinctly different language?respect for him, love for her. The result is mutual understanding and a successful, godly marriage.

Reviews - What do customers think about Cracking the Communication Code: The Secret to Speaking Your Mate's Language?
Must read Nov 26, 2008
A great book for every man and woman to read. A great gift for couples getting married.
too wordy Sep 9, 2008
The book has valid ideas & they work; only it is so wordy that it takes a long time to get to the point.
YOUR MATE Aug 11, 2008
It was a bit repetitive of his first book, so if you've read Love and Respect, it's a great review too.
Recommended for all couples! Jun 29, 2008
This is an expansion of his book Love & Respect, so I recommend listening to/reading that one first, but if you don't he gives a recap. It seems redundant, but the principles are something we all need ingrained into us. My husband and I are a perfect match - we matched on [...] , but our relationship went to a new level while I was listening to these CDs. Eggerichs' principles are straight out of scripture so they work! He sets aside the myths and roles that society has created about men and women and gets back to how God created us to be and to interact. He amazingly does so without offending who we are as women but uplifting us.
Communication 101 for Christian Couples Jun 25, 2008
"The key to motivating another person is meeting that person's deepest need - love for her and respect for him!" ~ pg. 134
Whether you are in a fairly good marriage or in one that is falling apart, "Cracking the Communication Code" has a lot to offer. Dr. Emerson Eggerichs backs up his points with plenty of scripture references and gives advice based on wisdom gained from experience. He places an emphasis on listening, decoding, forgiveness, unconditional love and being thankful for your spouse. The main sections of the book include:
A Summary of the "Love & Respect" book authored by Dr. Emerson Three Vital Truths for Better Communication The Crazy Cycle: A Relentless Enemy of Marital Communication The Energizing Cycle: To Better Communicate, Meet Your Spouse's Need The Rewarded Cycle: The Unconditional Dimension of Communication
Dr. Emerson explains how couples get into cycles and shows how you can escape destructive patterns by showing respect and love. If you are fighting all the time then you are spending most of your time in the "Crazy Cycle." Couples who are giving love and respect are in the "Energizing Cycle." For those fighting to save their marriage through unconditional love, the "Rewarded Cycle" shows the way to conflict resolution and reconciliation.
This book is filled with inspiring stories of couples who have used these teachings to their advantage. At the end of the book there is a special section for couples who want to improve their relationship by speaking to each other as Jesus would. Imagining Jesus standing next to your partner can be a way to monitor your speech.
Most of the advice is for couples who want to learn to speak each other's language and who want to avoid fights. I did not feel that this book would be as useful in a very abusive relationship where someone is in danger. This is mostly for couples who are willing to work at their marriages together, although there is plenty of advice for anyone seeking to save their marriage on their own.
