“Psychologist Molly Howes on How to Say You’re Sorry,” Boston Globe “Story Behind the Book,” July 17, 2020.

“A Good Apology: Four Steps to Make Things Right,” Publisher’s Weekly, April 27, 2020.

“At a time when conflict and divisiveness seem to be engulfing us all, this wonderful, on-target book by Molly Howes is just what is needed! Here are practical, effective remedies that can help make reconciled relationships possible.”

—The Most Rev. Michael B. Curry, Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church

“I hope the whole world reads this book!  Dr. Howes explores the power of a genuine apology in intimate relationships, politics, medicine and more, and she provides an elegant roadmap for negotiating this tricky terrain.  The ability to apologize is an often overlooked, but centrally important, aspect of happy relationships. Seamlessly written and saturated with wisdom, this book shows what it takes to free the heart – ours and others. Fortunately, it’s never too late!”

—Christopher Germer, PhD, Faculty, Harvard Medical School, Author of  The Mindful Path to Self-Compassion

“Dr. Howes’ beautiful book is a needed antidote to an era in which division has come to seem inevitable and conflict unresolvable. A Good Apology counters with a premise combining humility about the capacity of even the best among to cause harm and the possibility of human growth even in our darkest moments. It helps us forgive ourselves, too.”

—Frances Moore Lappé, Author of Diet for a Small Planet and Living Democracy, Feeding Hope  

“This is the definitive book on how to make an apology that actually matters, that heals both parties, and that leads to growth, joy, and peace of mind.  Accessible, authoritative, and filled with convincing real-life scenarios from this consummate clinician’s own work, A Good Apology teems with warmth, wisdom, tenderness, and an infectious zest for making things right.”

 —Edward Hallowell, M.D., Author of Driven to Distraction

“A Good Apology beautifully outlines how our relationships can dramatically improve by an authentic way to repair. Mistakes and ruptures happen, and Howes shows us how the practice of the apology is the first imperative step toward repair. By following her 4 steps to make things right, the practice of how and when we apologize can be honed to create transformative and positive change.”

—Eve Rodsky, New York Times bestselling author of Fair Play: A Game-Changing Solution for When You Have Too Much to Do (and More Life to Live)

“In A Good Apology, Dr. Molly Howes expertly delves into a difficult topic that helps us all become more loving and connected.  In today’s hectic world, nurturing our relationships is paramount.  Through stories of people struggling and other useful tips and tools, Dr. Howes creates a road map we can all use to thrive.”

—Dr. Zelana Montminy, behavioral scientist & author of 21 Days to Resilience

“Healthy relationships are essential to how we live and work together. Imagine the benefit to business, families, governments, health care, faith communities, education, and our quality of life if human beings could learn to make a good apology. In this earnest and inviting book, Dr. Howes connects social science, popular events and her considerable clinical expertise to create an accessible formula for the repair of broken relationships. In our divided age, this should be required reading.”

 —Nicholas Covino, PsyD, President of William James College

“‘A Good Apology’ is a brilliant, beautifully written, impeccably researched book that should be read by anyone involved in conflict management, organizational consulting, coaching, or psychotherapy.  Actually, I can think of no one who would not benefit – both personally and professionally – from this book’s clear, analytical, and heartfelt exploration of the four essential steps in a successful apology.  Drawing on psychological experiments, the lessons of clinical practice, the author’s personal experience, and keen observations of our culture, Molly Howes has given us a life-changing gift with her sage advice and evocative stories of hurt, apology, and reconciliation.”
