There Must Be Better Books On The Subject Jan 22, 2008
I've read this book years ago and I've been recently looking for a new book on the subject being that I'm in a new country and may be here for some years. (I've moved from all of my old friends) Anyways, there's this reviewer Hansen (something or other) who's given this book a 1 star. He's given the book a pretty accurate review. It is written from a Christian perspective and it just seems like light weight self help fluff.

This book is a great book for people trying to get closer relationships...it's very specific.
A word from the wise. Feb 18, 2007
This book gave me brilliant insight into freindships and relationship building. It is a real privaledge to be able to learn from Alan McGinnis the keys to good frindships. These are tried and proved priciples and I thought the value placed on true fiendship and the practical examples were inspiring and helpful. Using Jesus was not over the top as it gave us insight into someone most people know about and and an awesome example of how to live the ultimate life. A real help to thoses who feel the need for richer frienships in this increasingly lonely world.
