CD version narrated by the author
The subject of apology seems to be nonexistent in our society; yet the need for apology is everywhere: at home, at work--even in national and international situations. For years, Sheila Quinn Simpson has been drawn to stories in which people's lives would have changed for the better if only they had received or extended a sincere apology.
Her intend in writing this book is to increase your awareness about the power you posses to wisely decide to change your life and the lives of others by simply saying , "I'm sorry." This difficult action brings hope for change, growth, and renewal.
"For those who realize life is incomplete without forgiveness, Apology offers guidance and inspiration. It is a lighthouse showing the way between shallow insincere efforts and true depths of healing, empowerment, and moving forward. Well written and compelling, it is timely in the post 9/11 world."
John Schneider,PhD, Author, Psychotherapist, and Distinguished Professor Emeritus, Michigan State University, Dept. of Psychiatry, Colleges of medicine
"Sheila Quinn Simpson reminds us that as individuals, couples, families, communities, and as a nation, we have forgotten the redemptive power of a heartfelt apology. Her words are powerful and true. I would like to make this required reading for all my clients!"
Deborah Marqui, LCSW, Psychotherapist
"... I have seen the tragedies wrought because someone did not and would not apologize and ask for forgiveness. I found myself agreeing over and over with Sheila . . . I will recommend this book to many people."
