“In her debut, Bonior (Psychology/Georgetown Univ.) dispenses smart advice, flush with wit and sarcasm, aimed at women grappling with their relationships. Not only does she embrace and trumpet the importance of friendship, the author also offers relevant ideas and non-silly steps to put yourself out there and start creating new friendships.... An overdone topic taken from clinical to fabulous.” ―Kirkus Reviews
“If you're one of those people who let your friendships fizzle after your twenties--or if you're still clinging for dear life to friendships that no longer serve you--I prescribe The Friendship Fix as the cure for what's keeping you from your true BFF's. Many of us build our families from the friendships we create as young women, but how can we create sustainable, healthy, authentic, lasting connections with the girls who have got our back? Trust Andrea Bonior to help you choose your friends mindfully, prioritize relationships that bring out the best in you, and build the foundation for a lifetime of rich, fulfilling sisterhood. If I'd had just such a guide when I was younger, it might not have taken me until my forties to learn how to be and attract the kind of friend I've always desired.” ―Lissa Rankin, MD, author of What's Up Down There? Questions You'd Only Ask Your Gynecologist If She Was Your Best Friend and founder of OwningPink.com

Dr. Andrea Bonior addresses all the complex friendship dilemmas women are likely to encounter in their 20s and 30s and lays out practical strategies to avoid or resolve them.” ―Irene S. Levine, Ph.D., author of Best Friends Forever: Surviving a Breakup with Your Best Friend

Not really any mindblowing advice in this book. I think it is geared for 20 somethings. I am much older than that and have learned already most of what is in this book. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Meriah
The only part I found helpful was if a friend is in dire need of psychiatric help, but even that section wasn't helpful when a friend or family member for that member refuses to go... Read morePublished 11 months ago by 1finecharger
Not relevant for ppl over 30. Some good information and doesn't have that "analytical" read feel. If I were younger, I might have enjoyed it more.Published 20 months ago by Bernadette Sitter
