Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt is a New York Times best-selling author and her recent book ‘The Gift of Forgiveness’ came out in early this year. It has been said to be an instant New York Times best-seller.
The book is intriguing to me as I find forgiveness to be crucial in my day-to-day life; thus, Pratt’s spin on a thorough explanation of that seems very enlightening, which makes it on my to-read list.
“When we learn to embrace forgiveness, it opens us up to healing, hope, and a new world of possibility,” says Pratt.
The book falls under various categories, including inspiration and motivation, personal growth, philosophy, nonfiction, self-help, and psychology.

Pratt has based her book on more than twenty interviews as well as personal reflections from herself in learning to forgive. The book seeks to explore the art of forgiveness in numerous contexts with firsthand stories collected from the interviews about those that have chosen to let go of resentment.
The book presents different journeys to forgiveness, whether it be ‘slow and thorny’ or perhaps ‘instantaneous–by which they learned to forgive and let go’.
I think as the book explores various routes to forgiveness, many may find this appealing to read and to choose what resonates with their circumstances the most.
“Here’s a sure conclusion from reading Pratt’s book: The world would be a far better place if we practised more of what the people Pratt profiles have discovered.” says Associated Press regarding Pratt’s book.
Additionally, Don Miguel Ruiz, New York Times bestselling author of The Four Agreements states “No matter your age or your belief system, there is something in this book for everyone. Read it and you will be inspired to reach for the gift of forgiveness.”
