In this straightforward, illuminating book filled with dozens of quizzes and real-life examples, Yager covers all the bases, including:
The 21 types of negative friends - a rogues’ gallery featuring such familiar types as the Blood-Sucker, the Fault-Finder, the Promise Breaker, and the Copycat
How to recognize destructive friends as well as how to find ideal ones
The email effect - how electronic communication has changed friendships for both the better and the worse
The misuse of friendship at work - how to deal with a co-worker’s lies, deceit, or attempts at revenge
How to stop obsessing about a failed friendship
And much more
The first highly prescriptive book to focus on the complexities of friendship, When Friendship Hurts demonstrates how, why, and when to let go of bad friends and how to develop the positive friendships that enrich our lives on every level.

What did you love best about When Friendship Hurts?
The anecdotes shared from the author's experience as a researcher.
What about Tanya Eby’s performance did you like?
Good performance. At times, it could have done better with a few more pauses and breaks (especially in between topics)
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Any additional comments?
Audio books are perhaps best for fiction and self help that does not need to be referenced later.
