About this deal

Este livro aborda vários tipos de amizade sempre baseados na experiência pessoal da autora, o que lhe dá um cunho muito próprio, mas também com muita informação estatística e científica.

I thought it was clever to have a different friend for each chapter and the inserted friend diaries from other people she'd interviewed were good too (though they should only have been inserted at the end of chapters not in the middle of one).My preference is for once-a-month meet-ups with an option to consider a mini-break in Prague if things go well. The book is an easy read about friendship and I think it's very much a book that will be appreciated more by women, I'm excited for some female friends to read it so I can hear their opinions about it. From exploring her own personal friendships and the distinct importance of each of them in her life, to the unique and powerful insights of others across the globe, Elizabeth asks why there isn’t yet a language that can express its crucial influence on our world. What's more, friendship is a universal experience that unites people and while it may be experienced differently by various cultures a fixation on division rather than connectivity seems counter-productive.

I really enjoyed reading this, but I found the point or anecdote was often lost in a seemingly pointless side story or fact or lengthy metaphor. I saw myself in so much of this book and in some ways it helped me to both cherish what I have in my immediate three best friends (three!Friendaholic has given me clarity as to why those friendships had to end, and why the ones I have now are so meaningful. Academic and scientific lines of reasoning are used in this book to provide a bit of starch to an otherwise completely subjective book. We don't have to have "White Wine Wednesdays" to discuss how we feel about each other because playing and training alongside each other and pushing ourselves beyond physical barriers to grow as teammates and not let each other down says more than any fireside discussion possibly could. And this is why, for me, the book has been so cathartic, and has delivered repeated punch-in-the-guts moments.
