The frantic pace and casual attitudes of modern life have made real friendship a rare experience. The Art of Friendship shows how making true connections can greatly enhance one's life. Seventy brief essays present simple but effective "rules of connecting" with action points to help you put each rule into practice in daily life. Woven throughout are personal anecdotes from the Horchows, sharing their experiences of friendship. Recognizing that friendships take many forms, the authors offer practical, proven advice that demystifies the process of making friends. The audiobook opens with a foreword by Malcolm Gladwell (author of The Tipping Point) that explores the Horchows' special talent for making and keeping friends. Whether your goal is to start a new relationship or reinvest in a longstanding friendship, this inspiring program will reveal how you can build more meaningful connections in your life.

Professional reviews

"The Horchows advise listeners on meeting and making new friends, building foundations for lasting friendships, and managing "advanced friendships." Though their "rules for connecting" are indeed simple, they're often overlooked. In his excellent introduction, Malcom Gladwell explains that the Horchows mean to demystify friendship which, like crime, is simply a matter of "means, motive, and opportunity." Though the book is narrated mainly by Holter Graham, who conveys the message without sounding preachy, the Horchows weigh in frequently. Roger, who has a gravelly Texas accent, and his daughter, Sally, pert and urbane, read the many sidebars. Their friendly voices and entertaining stories enhance this production--which would make a nice gift to a friend. J.C.G. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
