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

Holiday Reading 2010

My desk is famous gathering point for family friends and colleagues to park lot’s of things, and whilst it’s sometimes just where people abandon things for me to put away after they use them, it’s also where people put things they want me to give attention to! It occurs to me that this book was in the latter category! One theme, multiple books, seminars and marketing campaigns latter and I tend to approach it from the perspective of a cynical Brit. I shouldn’t have. It’s a well written book, an easy and a quick read. I won’t make sensationalist claims about it saving marriages or changing mine, even though there is much I should be learning. This book should help me continue in doing that. My own hobbyhorse would be to say that it majors on presenting a cross cultural missionaries skills set. That is, realise that something you do with one meaning in your own frame of reference and values, is often read by others very differently, or perhaps to be without meaning. The challenge is to communicate to others that our different to you, your message in a language they can most easily embrace and be touched by…. And which may mean doing so in a way that didn’t come naturally to you until you started to better understand who the person or people that you are trying to communicate with. ( )
