Review of Whatever Happened to Friendship?
December 8, 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
Henry Menzies has written on a subject of enormous importance for our high tech society, the value of true and authentic friendship. I highly recommend this book. I could not put it down and read the entire book in one sitting. When I finish a Dickens novel, I always say to myself, God bless you Charles Dickens, God bless you! When I finished this book after having been edified and enthused, I said to myself, God bless you, Henry Menzies, God bless you! This book reminds me of a major lesson I learned from St. Josemaria Escriva: the value of friendship--loving another person for their own sake--having their true good and ultimate happiness in mind. Friendship is also important within a family and within a marriage. The spouses need to be friends with one another--and the parents and children need to be friends. All this leads one to think of the True Friend, Jesus Christ--the Everlasting Friend. Frank Capra's Classic film, "It's a Wonderful Life" (starring Jimmy Stewart) ends with the message, "No Man who has friends is a failure." The people of the town bail out their friend, Jimmy Stewart. Friendship is evidence that we have a soul. There is a spiritual component of man that will live on forever. We are made in the image and likeness of God--we have spark of the Divine. Friendship is an eternal bond between souls. Jesus taught us the two great commandments--Love of God and Love of Neighbor. Christ tells his followers, "Love one another as I have loved you." True friendship has within it the warmth of the heart of Christ. The selfish life without friends is easy to attain. By contrast, a major teaching of Saint John Paul the Great was the gift of self to another--the free gift of self for the good of another. This is what friendship is--and that is the greatness of this book.

I loved it. A gem of a book that gets right to the heart of the hidden potential for friendship we all desire and have within us and, how to bring it out. In plain language, with great historical references, the author illustrates how true friendship can help us grow to be the best we can be and change our lives. If you have only one friend or, would like to make one or a few, this read is worth it.
A little gem on a great need in life
March 31, 2015 - Published on Amazon.com
A perfect short book for those who want to be a friend, find a friend or help others who have no friends. This book is a gem. Even the quotations at the beginning of the chapters captivate and pull one in as I have never seen done before. I will come back to this book many times and I will give many away as well.
