Reviews - What do customers think about Audiobook-Audio CD-Five Love Languages (5 CD)?
If only I'd discovered this sooner! Dec 8, 2008
I work in a bookstore and read this book mostly because for a while there it was flying off the shelves, and I wanted to see what it was about. I wish I'd discovered this book about 10 years ago! I'm currently divorced and am not dating, but I could immediately see how this book could have altered my perceptions during my marriage. Would it have made a difference and saved my relationship? I don't know. It takes two to tango, as they say, and we were a bad match for a variety of reasons. But I do think that self-awareness is half the battle. After reading this book, I could immediately identify my love language as Words of Affirmation and my ex-husband's as Acts of Service. During our marriage, the thing that bothered me most -- that increasingly made me feel unloved and undervalued -- was that I didn't get those verbal strokes. I just didn't realize at the time that they were so very important to me, or WHY they were so important. Likewise, I can see now, in retrospect, that my husband tried hard to communicate with me in HIS love language -- Acts of Service -- but because that one ranks way down on my own personal list, I was oblivious and unappreciative. Had I read this book while I was still married, I don't know that it would have SAVED our relationship. But at the very least it might have enabled us to part with less acrimony and resentment.
I think the concept Chapman lays out in this book is beautifully simple, and whether or not it will be transformative for you will depend on many things. But I do believe there's tremendous merit here. The book is short and easy to read and digest and apply to one's own life.
Good Concept Nov 28, 2008
The point of this book, that different people need to be showed love in different ways, is a solid one. I've been telling my husband that for years! I certainly wasn't telling him as clearly as Chapman describes in this book, though.
I appreciated being able to clarify my thoughts about expressing love by reading this book. Chapman's ideas weren't revolutionary to me, but were reassuring nonetheless.
Aspects of this book didn't work for me. The individual stories were a bit simplistic, full of couples whose marriages seemed totally on the rocks until they tried this easy love language method that fixed everything in their lives. The book itself, with its pages of pink puffy clouds and flower illustrations, looked a bit like a cheesy greeting card, and as a non-Christian I skimmed over the Bible verses.
So there were some parts of this book that were better left ignored, but the basic idea resonated with me, and gave me a handful of concrete ideas to apply to my own relationships with my husband as well as with my children.
Eager and Anxious to read!! Nov 25, 2008
While I may be a little premature in my comments about a book that I have yet to read, I CANNOT wait to begin this life changing adventure. Based on the comments here, it looks like I will NOT be disappointed. I was lead to this book by my friend Ami, who says (and I quote):"This book changed how I interact with EVERYONE. It changed who I am and how I see everyone in my life and it helped me to understand why some relationships don't work, and some do. You'll love it!"
With this kind of testimonial, how could I NOT give it a try?!?!?! I have just ordered the book, so I will be back AFTER this exciting read. I can't wait!!!
The Five Love Languages Nov 23, 2008
This book is excellent and I would recommend it to all married couples, couples thinking about marriage and anyone in a relationship. It breaks down our communication preferences in laymen terms - This is definitely a book that will make you go - Hummmmmmmm. So that's it! You will find that your relationships will improve if your practice the suggestions. My husband and I have both read it and purchased 15 additional copies for our church members. My husband and I had an excellent relationship before reading this book and The Five Love Languages has now enhanced it. Thank you Mr. Chapman!
The Esperanto of love! Nov 14, 2008
If this wonderful book has taught me anything, it's that Klingon is not one of the five "love languages."
