The 5 Love Languages for Men: A Book Review and GIVEAWAY!


About The Book:

At the heart of every man is a desire to master what matters. Getting a compliment at work or on the court is nice, but nothing beats hearing your spouse say, “You make me feel loved.” If you haven’t heard that in a while or feel like you are not bringing your A-game into your relationship, this books is for you. The 5 Love Languages has sold 10 MILLION COPIES because it is simple, practical, and effective. In this edition, Gary Chapman speaks straight to men about the rewards of speaking their wife’s love language. You’ll learn each language, how to identify your wife’s, and how to speak it clearly. Packed with helpful illustrations and creative pointers, these pages will rouse your inner champion and empower you to master the art of love.

My Review:

The Five Love Languages book is one that my husband and I received as a wedding shower gift almost 18 years ago and is a book that both of us have often referred to over the years. Since that best selling book released, others have been added to the collection. Most recently, The Five Love Languages of Men. My husband decided to read it and have my let you know his thoughts on the book. 

First off, he is not a fast reader, so I read the first half, and he the second. Here are some of his thoughts:

-a great read, 
-engaged me well, 
-awesome tips on how to meet the love language of my wife (Acts of service and words of affirmation),
-learning my own love language and how to express my needs to my wife,
-ideas for ways to connect with your spouse that are fun and remind you why you fell in love in the first place,
-three major additions to this book makes it applicable to men specifically in that there are tips on how to apologize, how to deal with anger and a ton of illustrations written throughout the book

Overall, he thought it was a great read, and one that all men should read. He thought it would be a great gift for a new engaged couple or a super wedding gift, combined with the original book by Dr. Chapman.

We both highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
