However, one specific cavet I do have with this book: it's religious undertones. While this should be expected from an author who is a devout christian, I did still find myself a bit suprised how the author goes on about why "cohabiting" (living with a partner that includes sexual relations that are outside of a marrige) is bad and a lot of references to God, Jesus and holy scripture quotes. I, being the non-religious person that I am, just fundamentally disagree with the claim that sexual relations must only happen under a holy "marrige" arrangment and that anything outside that range is potentially harmful....
But, despite this issue I have with a specific part from the contents of this books, the rest of his advice and knowledge seems very good and intelligent. Worth a read for sure.
As an avid story-lover, I thoroughly enjoyed Gary Chapman's use of true stories to illustrate how an awareness of the five love languages has helped people cultivate, mend, or excel in their various relationships. Romantic, familial, platonic—the nature of the relationship doesn't matter. Of course, he's promoting his idea, so it's not in his interest to share instances of failure. Nonetheless, the book's versatile selection of success testimonies inspires confidence that there is great insight to be found in this philosophy. It's evident that the author really believes what he teaches.
There are some nuances or side points of The 5 Love Languages: Singles Edition that I question, but for the most part, it was an enriching read. The languages of love that this book teaches are "Words of Affirmation," "Acts of Service," "Receiving Gifts," "Quality Time," and "Physical Touch." Though it isn't common knowledge in the general public, it seems intuitive, once explored, that different expressions of love will hold different levels of importance to different individuals. For one person, uplifting and affirming words are the key to the heart, while for another it's quality time. In His Word, God exhorts us to look not only to our own interests but also to the interests of others (Philippians 2:4) and to consider how to stir up one another to love and good deeds (Hebrews 10:24). The fact is, while we all need love (from both God and people), our interests look different at a grassroots level. It takes thoughtful consideration to know what will stir up love in another. I really appreciate the attention this book gives to exploring the dynamics of human relationships.
The 5 Love Languages: Singles Edition by Gary Chapman was insightful and delightful, hence the 5/5 stars I give it. I would be interested in reading more of his spinoffs based on the core concept of the five love languages, and I would recommend this book to anyone interested in exploring the dynamics of human relationships as God has made it.
You can Learn to "talk the way your partner " needs so they know that you "love them".
I feel this will help me and my partner in our "love relationship", as we both took the test.
Sent the "test" to a couple people and they really enjoyed "learning their /partners love language" , it's going to be a big help in the relationship.
From a physical perspective the book is well made, has great graphics, and is formatting in such a manner that makes it easy to read. The wording itself is also great.
The only limitation of this book is the limitations all books face in that because of its focus it does not always have nuance one may want about the idea but even then it does not fail at this to the extent many books do.

I don't have anything against it, however, this is not the sort of book I was looking for and this misrepresentation was disappointing. The whole book thus is a disappointment for me. 2nd star just because the idea of languages is an interesting one.
If you do what is suggested in it, prepare to see your life and the way you feel be completely transformed ... for the better.
Easy to read.
I would recommend it.
