Editorial Reviews

Review

""The Dance of Apology" is at once practical and profound. Itguides us through the most difficult places in human relationships--"being "wronged and "doing "wrong. The stories Lerner tells are unforgettable and full of heart, making each chapter worth the price of admission. Read this book, then pass it on to the non-apologizer."--Monica McGoldrick, M.A., LCSW, Ph.D. (Honorary), Director of the Multicultural Family Institute in Highland Park, New Jersey"

"With her signature punch and humor, Harriet Lerner tackles the injuries that occur inmarriage, family and friendship. Her advice for repairinghurts and earning forgiveness is fresh, profound, life-affirming and immediately useful."--Janis Abrahms Spring, Ph.D., author of How Can I Forgive You?"

A profoundly insightful look into the many ways humans hurt each other and the power of apology to restore broken relationships. Harriet Lerner has written a valuable guide for both those who deserve an apology and those who owe one.--John Kador, author of Effective Apology"

I love Harriet Lerner s work! --Anne Lamott, author of Help, Thanks, Wow and Bird by Bird"

If you want to know why Harriet Lerner is one of my great heroes, "Why Won t You Apologize"? is the answer. This book is a game changer. --Brene Brown, Ph.D., LMSW, author of the New York Times #1 bestseller Rising Strong"
