At first I thought this book was going to be tedious. I mean, really, how many books is Gary Chapman going to write with "5 Languages" in the title? So, I didn't expect this book to tell me much. As I read it, though, I realized it was rather an important read. Effective apologies aren't something overly well taught or conveyed. I didn't find the different languages of apology to be all that earth-shattering as they seemed a bit straight forward to me. However, since the language needed depends a lot on the situation, it is good to know there are different, and perhaps better, way to apologize. But, I liked the ideas brought up in the context of those chapters, especially when Gary brought up how people have a hard time apologizing for things that are not moral wrongs. I think this is completely accurate. People don't like to apologize for the little things or make changes in their character to benefit those closest to them since "I'm not really wrong when I do this." The later chapters in the book talked about how to apologize and forgive, teaching children to apologize and forgive, forgiving one's self, and learning how to apologize in different situations (family members, co-workers, dating relationships, etc.). I found these to be a better part of the book, particularly the "forgiving one's self" chapter.I enjoyed this book. I am happy I read it. I think it will be helpful both now and in the future.

Bestseller Book The Five Languages of Apology: How to Experience Healing in All Your Relationships Several of my friends are reading other books in this line (the five love languages, etc). One of them told me to "keep my filter on." I'll say. This book has a very Christian focus. The chapter on forgiveness was pretty much useless to me, as it was mostly "let go and let God".(Would a more careful reading of the book jacket have forewarned me? Possibly.)A lot of the examples are also based on Christian morals. Man, I thought I had problems...people get upset about some really silly things. (Note: looking at porn != porn addiction! Hello!) I think what bothered me most was that there was a lack of what I'd consider healthy boundaries in the example scenarios & solutions. (Warning: potential trigger ahead.) I found it offensive to suggest that a molested child who had run away from home return and apologize to her parents first. In fact, I kinda turned the air in the room a bit blue when I read that.Despite all that, I will probably go ahead & read the five love languages, JFK.
