How to Be a Best Friend Forever: Making and Keeping Lifetime Relationships | [John Townsend]

How to Be a Best Friend Forever: Making and Keeping Lifetime Relationships

Our world has diluted the meaning of friendship, but the reality is, there’s nothing like the sustaining strength of true-blue, forever friends. Still, many people are convinced that they’ll never find such lifelong connections—or that they don’t need them. In this encouraging audio book, best-selling author and psychologist John Townsend delivers hope and help for making these relationships a reality—and for making them even better if you’ve already got a “bestie.”

Publisher's Summary

Our world has diluted the meaning of friendship, but the reality is, there’s nothing like the sustaining strength of true-blue, forever friends. Still, many people are convinced that they’ll never find such lifelong connections—or that they don’t need them. In this encouraging audio book, best-selling author and psychologist John Townsend delivers hope and help for making these relationships a reality—and for making them even better if you’ve already got a “bestie.” His eight principles for building the very best kind of friendship, along with his shared experiences within his own friendships (including mistakes he’s made), will move every listener to aspire to deeper connections and to stay the course when challenges arise. Townsend’s simple but profound concepts are sure to transform listeners’ relationships and keep them from missing out on one of life’s greatest and most essential joys: the joy of having a best friend.

    "Met me where my need is"

    I'm not very good at being or making friends. John's book gave me some easy to understand tools for how I can do this.

    "Could be MUCH shorter"

    Keep up with your friends that matter most. Know when to let go and when friendships naturally seperate. Get out of yourself but also know when you need your privacy.

    This is the basics of the book. The rest of the book are those things elongated.

    Story
    "Very current and practical for our electronic age"
    Would you listen to How to Be a Best Friend Forever again? Why?

    Already listened to it twice. Going back for third time and probably a fourth so that I don't miss a thing. Addresses so many areas of my life. So many questions answered on the different types of friendships and the level of involvment for each. He answers and addresses things that are not really discussed in every day life. Very good stories on various friendships he's had personally and others he's counseled with. Also helps in marriage relationships and how friendships are an important part of our lives. So practical and insightful.
