Basically a book about the different ways individuals show and receive (feel) love and appreciation. Glad I got the singles ones, it talks about how to get more out of your family, friends, housemates, work colleagues etc... and a definite must read for anyone in a relationship or marriage.

I was very impressed with this book. No matter what your religious beliefs are, your relationships will be transformed after reading and applying the principles of this book. The premise of this book teaches that there are 5 different ways people give and receive love. Basically, we all tick differently and we all have needs that are met in different ways. Because the author incorporates many real life examples, it is very easy and enjoyable to listen to. This book is designed for singles, but married individuals will learn something also. As singles it shows you how to relate to your future spouse, roommates, co-workers and friends. However, I would recommend his book on marriages for couples. Please take the time listening to this book, it will not only benefit you but all those you come in contact with.

The 5 love languages made complete sense, can use lessons in many areas of life
Gary Chapman has a lovely voice. He is easy to listen to and his advice is practical. There are several helpful case studies throughout the book that illustrate the relevance of love language today.
The ideas and the love languages are solid but I found this to have a heavy American Christian agenda which made it difficult to absorb the underlying messages of love. The prejudicial moralising regarding sex before marriage was worrying. His previous book The 5 Live Languages is not nearly as heavy handed with the Christian fables and Jesus references so would be a better choice for anyone who doesn't want to have to wade through sermonising and God-bothering and just wants to listen to the actual information.
