This book helps you to see from another person's perspective and then more effectively demonstrate that you value them. Giving flowers and chocolates are good romantic gestures for some people - but others would really value a good conversation more - or could you wash up and empty the bins more often?
Touch, (including hugging children or sex with your partner,) is one of the categories, as are "words of affirmation" or compliments.
The premise of the book is marriage but it can help in other types of interpersonal relationships at home or work.
I wish I could get my husband to read it! We did talk it through though. Unfortunately, because it has the word "love" in the title, he felt it necessary to hide it away as if it were pornographic. You don't need to! This is suitable for all the family.
