About this deal

I'm just not sure Day's experiences of friendship are representative of the core experience for most people. The discussions talk about the complications involved in being the only black friend to a white person etc and sadly its place in the book feels very much like the tokenism that Day and Sharmaine are trying to fight. Given that science is used as seasoning it shouldn't be surprising that there is little rigor cast over the facts chosen to support or prompt Day's positions. Then, when a global pandemic hit in 2020, she was one of many who were forced to reassess what friendship really meant to them – with the crisis came a dawning realisation: her truest friends were not always the ones she had been spending most time with.

Jo Elvin‘Essential reading… admirably candid and well-crafted’ The Guardian As a society, there is a tendency to elevate romantic love. If you have more than seven then you are likely to suffer exhaustion from trying to juggle everyone’s needs. I related to it so much and believe if every adult read this, we could all be experiencing more honest, deeper connections. 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.We also use them to help detect unauthorized access or activity that violate our terms of service, as well as to analyze site traffic and performance for our own site improvement efforts.

Perceptive, compassionate and filled with relatable insights into all that is beautiful about friendship, with its most valuable point being that it should be about quality, rather than quantity. My preference is for once-a-month meet-ups with an option to consider a mini-break in Prague if things go well.

She describes a physical and emotional dependence so strong that it had her pursuing platonic relationships to the point of damaging her own physical and psychological health. The data is interesting if interpreted the right way but it's not useful if you just throw it out there without examining it properly. I spent a lot of my time reading this book and thinking "Yes that happened to me" or "OMG that's me" or "I do/did that", so I feel it's a sign of a good book when so much of it relates or I feel seen. My cleverest friend thinks you should cultivate loads of them, do all the emotional stuff on sosh media and throw one party a year to control the spend. This examination on friendship; as a phenomenon, as a life force, as a thing that shapes our lives and our selves, truly captured my attention and my imagination.

From ghosting to frenemies, to social media and communication styles, to the impact of seismic life events, Elizabeth leaves no stone untouched.What's less fascinating to me is Day's hand wringing about what text message she should send a shitty friend who she doesn't really like.
