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.

This is a Christian based book.

What would have made How to Be a Best Friend Forever better?

If it were honest from the beginning for saying how it would be be speaking about The Body Of Christ.

Any additional comments?

This is Bible based. If quotes from the bible tune you out, you won't get much out of this. My beliefs about Jesus have nothing to do with what I thought this book was about.

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.

Another thought-provoking book from JohnTownsend

The book has a lot of good stuff to say about friendship, explaining what the research says about the value and importance of strong close friendships in anybody's life, and encouraging readers to be intentional about building and maintaining friendships as they are about building and maintaining a career or marriage or any other important part of life.
The performance is mostly good. He sounds a little stilted for the first few pages - it's obvious that he's reading rather than speaking - but don't let that put you off, because he soon gets into his stride and starts to sound much more natural and like the way he speaks when giving talks.
