Book Description

Jan. 15 2008
Just as you have a different love language, you also hear and express the words and gestures of apology in a different language. New York Times best-selling author Gary Chapman has teamed with counselor Jennifer Thomas on this groundbreaking study of the way we apologize, discovering that it's not just a matter of will-it's a matter of how. By helping people identify the languages of apology, this book clears the way toward healing and sustaining vital relationships. The authors detail proven techniques for giving and receiving effective apologies.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Chapman, author of the bestselling The Five Love Languages, teams up with psychologist Thomas for thoughtful dissection of another tricky subject. Chapman and Thomas choose to tackle the apology because, as with love, understanding it is essential for developing, maintaining and repairing relationships. Apology, however, covers a much broader scope, applying to all varieties of relationships, from the deeply personal connection between intimate partners to the formal relationships between nations. Chapman and Thomas's basic observation that we don't all agree on what constitutes a sincere apology is perhaps not surprising, but it may, as they show, help couples who can't resolve arguments because their apologies aren't accepted. The authors stress that you need to learn the "language" of the person you are apologizing to: for one person, it may be expressing regret, while for another it's accepting responsibility or making restitution. Especially useful is the chapter that helps readers learn which language of apology feels most sincere to them. Chapman and Thomas are most apt when they seek to repair relationships not with large ideas but with simple basics that are too often taken for granted. (Sept.)

3.0 out of 5 stars I felt like I understood, all of a sudden... Jan. 26 2012
By Fanchon
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is by the same guy who did "The five love languages". That book was groundbreaking for me, and all of a sudden I felt like I understood my parents, my spouse, my friends, my niece and nephew...

The Five Love Languages of Apology provided me with that same awakening. I almost immediately began to perceive why there was such a difference between how I saw things and others saw things when it came to saying sorry.

Not to say that I now can get anyone to accept my apologies and not hold a grudge, but it helps me understand why I'm not always able to please others.

The biblical undertones are fine, and I understand where the author is coming from. To me, it neither adds nor takes away from this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars An apology may not be as simple as "I'm sorry" Dec 30 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent book and an easy read. The authors provide "cheat sheets" at the end of each chapter that easily summarize the key points that you may want to cover for each of the 5 languages. I no longer think an apology is as simple as "I'm sorry". Great book
