readers and assessment-takers have indicated that they can't
believe they are getting this much value from such a
relatively small financial investment into their
relationship. Itís actually far less than half of
what it might cost for just one session with a typical
marriage counselor. On the other hand, a few readers
of Love Talk have questioned why a fee is required for a
second code to have their spouse take the test. Itís
a question that deserves an answer.
have put a great deal of care and prayer into this Love Talk
project and our team has done our best to devise itís
various components (book, workbooks, online assessment, and
small group curriculum) to be flexible and affordable Ė
allowing couples to use a variety of tools to help them
apply it to their lives. Countless hours and a great
deal of expense have gone into crafting the online Love Talk
Indicator to be sure it is valid, reliable, and practical
for couples just like you. Because of the
sophistication of this assessment it necessitates a small
investment from its users and we want to explain the fee
that it requires so you know why two codes are not included
for free with each book.
The online assessment: Truth be told, a substantial financial sacrifice
was made on our end to include one free code for the Love
Talk Indicator. Most readers realize itís quite
extraordinary to receive a sophisticated assessment with a
book in this way Ė especially at a $30 value when the book
is $20 (a standard price for a book of this size without an
assessment). We also stretched hard to make the
additional assessment only $14.95 (regularly $30 each) --
the lowest priced assessment of its kind on the internet.
And in case youíre curious, not a penny of the money you
spend on this assessment will be profit. As you might
guess, thousands of man-hours have been put into making this
assessment available and it requires a great deal of costly
labor to keep it up and running. We hope you
understand that it simply isn't realistic or possible to
give away $60 worth of assessments with the purchase of a
$20 book. Not only would this be poor stewardship but
it is simply not financially possible.
The workbooks: The menís and womenís workbooks are an additional
tool for readers to use if they choose. They are an
optional feature as a curriculum kit. The Love Talk
book stands alone without them but they are another means to
help readers who choose to augment their reading. If
we included the exercises in the book, the price of the book
would rise significantly and it would then be classified by
the Library of Congress as a workbook (because you are
providing space for writing in it) and that necessitates a
more expensive binding by the publisher as well.
Including them as an optional add-on is the most flexible,
user-friendly, and affordable model available.
The DVD small-group curriculum: For those who would like to study
the Love Talk material in a small group setting, the
six-session DVD can be used without the book itself.
Participants simply need one of the mens/womens workbooks.
The online assessment is not required for small group
participants but is offered as an option for those who are

comes from the heart. If you have questions about the

this sheds some light for you. Of course, we welcome
