Book Review: The Five Love Languages Gift Edition: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate by Gary Chapman

In The Five Love Languages, Gary Chapman writes that all acts of love may be classified into five groups or love languages.

It is important to know our mate's love language since most of the time, the way we express our love is not the best way for our mate to receive love.

The book describes the five love languages in detail and provides some real-life examples encountered by Chapman while counseling couples. Newer editions of the book include practical examples of the love languages. The book also include a chapter on kids(a book for kids has also been written).

I found this book very practical and saved me and my wife from a lot of frustration since we both have different ways of giving and receiving love.
I would recommend this book to couples, marriage counselors and to those who are engaged to be married. Also recommended to singles(although a singles' edition has also been written.
