Relationships are fragile. And whether fractured by a major incident or a minor irritation, the ensuing emotions can often feel insurmountable preventing the relationship from moving forward or the offended from moving on. In order to make things right, something more than “sorry” is needed. 

#1 New York Times bestselling author Gary Chapman and Jennifer Thomas have teamed up to deliver this groundbreaking study of how we give and receive apologies. It’s not just a matter of will, but it’s a matter of how you say, “I’m sorry” that ultimately makes things right with those you love. This book will help you discover why certain apologies clear the path for emotional healing, reconciliation, and freedom, while others fall desperately short.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aliesha | 2/16/2014

    " I think everyone should read this book and learn how to repair relationships. It was very insightful and I enjoyed reading it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lindsay | 2/10/2014

    " A lot of the material seemed like a repeat of Chapman's other books, so I ended up skipping large sections. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lesli | 2/2/2014

    " This book was a useful one to read. I learned some things about human relations, the down fall was the first half of the book is case study after case study of marriage problems, and I started to wonder when my husband would cheat on me. But after the first five initial chapters the had more case studies about other human relations other than just marriage problems, because obviously we have to apology in probably every aspect of life. A good follow up read to the Five Love Languages, which means of course it is cheesy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim | 1/17/2014

    " A very wonderful addition to the 'Five Love Languages' Easy to read and very well illustrated, I recommend this book for everyone single, married, parents, grandparents, everyone... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sybelle van Erven | 1/10/2014

    " Well, I did not actually finish this one. I thought it became a little too repetitive. As helpfula s Gary Chapman's books are, this one didn't do it for me. Yes, it was interesting to hear that even in apology people have different languages, so I will trey to remember that when apologizing. But beyond those ideas, I just think it became kind of a repeating of similar ideas, either from his other books or from previous chapters. I don't think you need to read much more than the first few chapters and you'll get it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 1/3/2014

    " didn't know sorry doesn't alway mean sorry unless said correctly. good book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cecilia | 12/3/2013

    " Just like the Five Love Languages, a good reminder that it's not really about me.......... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin Bartos | 11/30/2013

    " we're reading this in a small group at church. it's a good concept, one that people rarely think about but should. beware, though, a lot of the examples are really cheesy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim Bowen | 11/15/2013

    " EXCELLENT READ! I am a professional counselor/therapist and I can tell you that I would have much fewer clients if everyone read this. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Innerdiva1 | 11/14/2013

    " Awesome read. Changed how I view apologies and the way I communicate! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joelen | 10/25/2013

    " This book was purchased at a marriage conference where Dr. Gary Chapman was facilitating. It's a great book to read with your significant other and offers a more sincere approach to communicating in challenging times. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Roxie | 9/20/2013

    " This was ok. Probably because I am LDS and this principle is taught thoroughly. Don't get me wrong, it is a great concept but, I just didn't learn anything new. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gary | 8/2/2013

    " if you have ever wondered why people don't react the way you think they should or your relationships aren't the best that you would like them? Read this book and the five love languages. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melissa | 7/23/2013

    " A little slower and not as many "ah ha"s as his love languages book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lily | 7/16/2013

    " Like The Five Love Languages, this book is INVALUABLE!!! Wouldn't you like to know how someone likes to hear, "I'm sorry!" Again, this book has saved many misunderstandings!!! A MUST READ for anyone that wants to minimize conflict and maximize relationships!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Duane | 4/12/2013

    " Great ideas & practical ways to reconnect with those one has offended "

    " This is a good book to read and STUDY more than once. It's essential for learning how to communicate an apology that can be understood. If you can master apologizing in all five languages, you'll be WAY ahead in the game of life! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 9/3/2012

    " This is a great book. We use it at OASIS and have found it to be very helpful to people. It is a great because it looks at what constitutes an apology and what does not. It is a book which is helpful at a personal level and in organizations where healing is needed. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Judy | 6/24/2012

    " If you have read the 5 Love Languages, it's along the same lines, I don't think I will be finishing this book anytime soon. I don't know if this book will have the same following as the love languages, but maybe in a few years and then I will read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Loana Cooper | 11/2/2011

    " Useful for families, couples, relationships in which people have different perceptions of sincere apology. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristin | 5/22/2011

    " This book is good for people in all stages of marriage whether you are "in love", have recently came down off of the euphoria of being "in love", or are in a dark place in marriage. Sometimes you just have to get back to basics. "
