From the Inside Flap:

"A wake up call to our society, reminding us that the secret to personal success can often be found in the caring and support of our friends. Yes, we need friends, and we also need more books like this." --James M. Shuart President, Hofstra University

The right friends will help you thrive and succeed in life while the wrong friends can get you killed. Friendshifts will show you how to recognize the difference between healthy and destructive friendships as well as how to develop and maintain those friendships that will contribute to a longer, happier, and more successful life.

Friendshifts, the word coined by friendship expert and sociologist Dr. Jan Yager, explains how friendships shift as we go from one stage in our life to another. The variety of roles we play throughout our lives as student, worker, boss, spouse, or parent changes, shifting the role that friendship plays.

This fascinating book picks up where Dale Carnegie's How to Win Friends and Influence People left off by showing how those friends you win can make your life more fulfilling, prosperous, and even longer. Just as you can't be really successful in life without friends, if you have friends, you could not be considered a failure.

Friendshifts will help you to gain a much better understanding of one of life's more complicated, complex, and confusing, but key, relationships, and how it impacts on your life.
