Dr. Gary Chapman has spent his life helping people communicate love more effectively and in turn build more satisfying and lasting relationships. His book "The Five Love Languages" is a regular on the "New York Times Best Sellers" list - even after being in print for fifteen years - and has made the term 'love language' a part of everyday speech. "Love Is a Verb" takes his teaching to the next level. Rather than a typical marriage self-help book filled with lengthy explanations of principles and techniques, it is a compilation of true stories displaying love in action. These stories - written by everyday people - go straight to the hearts of readers, who often say that illustrations are the most effective parts of a book. Gary Chapman adds a 'Love Lesson' to each story, showing readers how they can apply the same principles to their own relationships.

I found this book enlightening into how others feel. If you can only go from your own feelings and not see it the way others may feel or view the situtation. I found this book very helpful in understanding others.
