This book is not just applicable to couples I think this book makes us understand each and every person s language of expressing love … I’ve just made the discovery that my mother s primary language of love is acts of service and that was never spoken by me all these years, no wonder she felt unloved….. thanks to my mentor Sir, Healer Baskar who’d advised all his followers to read this book and few others.
