We now give the hardcover version of this book as wedding gifts to others... In terms of happiness building, it's better than a toaster or Instant Pot. I'll say it again... I wish I read this book 20 years ago.
First, despite Dr. Chapman's belief that you can "learn" any language, if your partner's language is one that you value least, it's going to be a challenge to pick up on all the cues. If acts of service matter, for example, to your mate, and you are naturally helpful, incorporating acts of service into your relationship will be almost automatic. But if they have a very low meaning to you, it won't be automatic to do actual things that matter for your partner. It's not impossible, but it will be much harder. It's probably easier to communicate if you are on the same wavelength -- ie value some of the same things.
Second, I think Dr. Chapman minimizes the damage that can be caused by attempting to reach out in "love languages" if you are in an emotionally abusive or manipulative relationship. Some relationships are not worth saving. Some people are just hurtful. Enabling bad behavior or sacrificing yourself in an effort to save a relationship through a love language is a serious risk that he either dismisses or even encourages. Chapter 12, Loving the Unlovely, particularly reads like blaming the victim and is highly unrealistic.
Finally, all the love languages matter. One does probably matter most, but for a truly good relationship, you need some of each of them. But this book can help you become more loving to someone you care about.
