My pal Susan McCarthy and I have been analyzing apologies (in the news, pop culture, history, and literature) at SorryWatch since (gulp) 2012. And now our bookSorry, Sorry, Sorry: The Case for Good Apologies, will be published by Gallery Books, a division of Simon & Schuster, on January 10, 2023. Woot! Check out that gorgeous cover! Absorb those snazzy blurbs on the S&S web site!

In Sorry, Sorry, Sorry, we delve into research in psychology, sociology, philosophy, law, and medicine to explain why a good apology is hard to find…but also essential, powerful, and healing. We discuss why corporations, institutions, and governments seldom apologize well, how to teach children to apologize, and how gender and race affect both apologies and forgiveness.

You may have heard how important pre-orders are for authors nowadays. Please feel free to order Sorry, Sorry, Sorry wherever you like to buy books (PLEASE! FEEL FREE!), and we hope to have the chance to talk about it with you (and sign a copy for that person who DEFINITELY OWES YOU AN APOLOGY) soon in person.
