What's more, friendship is a universal experience that unites people and while it may be experienced differently by various cultures a fixation on division rather than connectivity seems counter-productive. Romantic partners may come and go, but the ability to tell yourself that you have a lot of friends, some dating back to kindergarten days, is a psychological lifejacket like no other. What's less fascinating to me is Day's hand wringing about what text message she should send a shitty friend who she doesn't really like.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Her latest book is How to Fail, a chronicle of the life-lessons of failure based on her hit podcast. I loved the exploration of not just what friendship is and means to people but that it's okay to end friendships, just as it is to end other relationships. Academic and scientific lines of reasoning are used in this book to provide a bit of starch to an otherwise completely subjective book.

And this is why, for me, the book has been so cathartic, and has delivered repeated punch-in-the-guts moments. I’m quite sure that i’m not the only one who has felt the discomfort of self-recognition in its pages, and it’s Day’s skill at delivering those moments of necessary disquiet that make this book feel as though it were written personally for each one of us, like a secret, shared journal in whose pages all our social inadequacies and fears are laid out and then examined with love and compassion, all the pent-up poison extracted and a soothing salve applied. Yet we rarely stop to examine those hurts and joys; family and romance take up all the air in the proverbial room. The book is an easy read about friendship and I think it's very much a book that will be appreciated more by women, I'm excited for some female friends to read it so I can hear their opinions about it. Ultimately, like Elizabeth, friends are utterly integral to my life and to read such a positive book celebrating that platonic love was heart warming.

There are explorations of modern day issues like social media friendships and ghosting, as well as deeper elements like friendships ending due to a bereavement. I am a recovering friendaholic too, and I found this book, which to some might seem niche or contrived, essential reading.Friendaholic has given me clarity as to why those friendships had to end, and why the ones I have now are so meaningful. I’ve already bought this for several people and recommended to others and all are finding it an insightful read. g. "double tap to like" and "ghosting" interspersed with interviews with friends about friendship e.

There are some neat observations- I particularly liked the references to the solar system - but these are buried beneath a marshmallow of slightly self-indulgent waffle. This male friend of hers who is the chosen expert on male friendship despite not having any says he's the type of guy who hates a stag do. I saw myself in so much of this book and in some ways it helped me to both cherish what I have in my immediate three best friends (three! An insight into Elizabeth Day’s experience of friendship, Friendaholic should be on every woman’s to read list. This examination on friendship; as a phenomenon, as a life force, as a thing that shapes our lives and our selves, truly captured my attention and my imagination.

That I prefer cinema dates to ones in bars and that I don’t do hugs (it’s nothing personal, I just don’t). It's a testament to the popularity of Friendaholic that I put it on hold at the library as both a hardback and an audiobook. Este livro aborda vários tipos de amizade sempre baseados na experiência pessoal da autora, o que lhe dá um cunho muito próprio, mas também com muita informação estatística e científica.
