Amazingly Insightful and Broadly Useful

First of all, it needs to be noted from the outset that this is a religious book and you will be proselytized to / at. Even so, this book is very, very much worth a read.

This book manages to keep the vast world of interpersonal relationships simple enough to comprehend what to do next, but doesn't try to reduce the complexities of our lives into a tagline. Gary focuses on devising a plan of attack for improving the relationships in our lives, not on making out a set of rules or a proscription for universal success.

Overall, I feel like he does a great job -- I learned a lot about myself, a lot about many of the people I've dated in the past, and I came to better understand my parents, my sisters, and my co-workers.

That said, there are a couple of problems with this book that keep it from a five star rating. As I mentioned before, this book is openly religious, and by that I mean Christian. I seldom desire a sermon, and when I do I would like fair warning.

Secondly, and much more alarmingly, this book has a very sex-negative view of the world, bolstered by some of the shoddiest research I've seen since the last time I watched Bill O'Reilly. Since I was already being preached at, I wouldn't have minded a sermon on the evils of the flesh, but trying to make his arguments seem factual with clearly biased "facts" just insults my intelligence.

All in all, though, despite one or two uncomfortable moments, an amazingly enlightening read.

The best book on how to love!

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.
