Please, Sorry, Thanks

The Three Words That Change Everything

Mark Batterson

About Please, Sorry, Thanks

Reach your most audacious goals and strengthen your most important relationships through the power of three magic words—from the New York Times bestselling author of Win the Day.

In the realm of medicine, a magic bullet is a treatment that cures quickly and easily without side effects. It’s the antidote to seemingly unsolvable problems. Pastor Mark Batterson believes that the words please, sorry, and thanks hold similar power over many challenges in our daily lives.

These three magic words are the key to healthy relationships and successful careers. Nothing opens doors like a genuine "please." Nothing resolves conflict like a sincere apology. Nothing incurs favor like heartfelt gratitude.

Though the words are simple and straightforward, it's not easy to make them a ready part of conversations in a world of rampant entitlement and division. But with Batterson as your guide, you can master the art of asking, the art of apologizing, and the art of appreciating as lifelong pursuits. 

Whether you're launching out into a new career or navigating long-established complexities in your life, it's time to harness the power of those three life-changing words and let them propel you wherever God leads you to go.
