A comprehensive book on the subject. It covers topics like early friendships; the nature of friends; the skill to make friends; the loosing of friends; between boys, between girls and between groups; making friends of different ages etc.
A very good definition of friendship and its nature and how it is different and yet connected with love or even wedlock. There are other things parents should look into (e.g. moving houses, changing schools...) if they want their children to be socially or indeed personally successful.
This book basically draws our attention to the relavant problems, giving us the basic principles involved without too much analysis or practical advice. The book is easy to read and full of examples. A very informative and engaging book that would take you half a day to finish. Recommended.
