The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate (audiobook) by Gary Chapman

Fill your mate's "love tank"

4 hours, 46 minutes.
Read by Gary Chapman

Gary Chapman
The author, Gary Chapman, does an excellent job of narrating the audiobook version of  The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate.

Chapman's thesis is, simply, that we all have a love tank, and it is best filled by two of 5 different love languages. If your spouse expresses his or her love to you in a love language that you don't speak than you will both be frustrated and your love tank will not be filled and eventually you will look for other ways to fill it.

The five love languages are:
-Quality Time
-Words of Affirmation
-Acts of Service
-Physical Touch

Chapman provides plenty of concrete examples so that most listeners will be able to identify themselves or their spouse.

He includes a section about expressing love to one's children as well using his love language theory.

Very interesting. Makes total sense to me.Chapman has a website where you can test yourself and see what love languages work best for you. Click here.

I rate this audiobook 5 stars out of 5.

  1. This book open my eyes in so many ways. Dr. Chapman reached into my soul and turned every thing around. Now that I understand what the Love Language is for the Love of my life and she knows mine. Things were great before but now they are even better.

  2. Very good read. A definite must. I would recommend this book to everyone because it shows how to deal all relationships, not just love relationships.
