Facebook says you have hundreds of friends. So why, when you really think about it, can you only name two? Friendship today is more confusing — yet more important — than ever. Enter bestselling author Julie Klam, an expert on friendship — online and off — if there ever was one. Drawing in particular on her experiences with her four closest friends and armed with a gentle sense of humor, Julie explores every facet of modern friendship and peppers her stories with suggestions on how to make the most of it. She wittily explains how to hang on to our friendships in the toughest circumstances: when schaudenfreude rears its ugly head, when we don’t like our friend’s mate. The result is a guide to friendships that can stand the test of time and a tribute to the powerful bonds we have with our friends. And it’s all delivered in Klam’s inimitable, disarmingly accessible and uproariously funny voice.
