Friendshifts: The Power of Friendship and How it Shapes Our Lives | [Jan Yager]

Friendshifts: The Power of Friendship and How it Shapes Our Lives

"Friendshifts" is a word Dr. Yager coined to denote how sometimes our friendships may shift throughout our lives, and even how we define a friend. Fortunately, in some instances, lifelong friendship does happen. The examples, anecdotes, quotes, and studies cited throughout the audiobook reinforce the notion that the right friends will help you get ahead or be happy in life, and even live a longer life; whereas the wrong friends can sabotage you or even get you hurt or killed.

What the Critics Say

"Yager ably demonstrates how friends can improve the quality of our lives, enhance our self-esteem, provide encouragement, and compensate for family defects." (Library Journal)

"Rewarding, sensible self-help manual for making, keeping, and improving friendships sociologist Yager's how-to takes its title from a word she coined, which refers to the way friendships change as we move through life's stages... This primer amply supports its central message, that friends are vital to our emotional health." (Publishers Weekly)
