Review

"In Friends to the End, I have tried to address some of the profound and amusing aspects of friendship in a way that offers pause for thought and more than a few reasons to laugh out loud. I hope this little book helps us all appreciate those people in our lives whom we both adore and sometimes want to strangle, but at the end of the day, we simply couldn't live without--our friends." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

 Since the debut of his international bestseller The Blue Day Book, Bradley Trevor Greive has become a household name in more than 115 countries. A former Australian paratrooper, BTG left the army to pursue more creative misadventures. He has been bitten by wild monkeys and rabid bats and was accepted into Russia's cosmonaut training program--though those incidents were, by and large, unrelated. BTG spends most of his time in a tiny Tasmanian hamlet.

You cannot get a better message and uplifting photos for $10. It is such a bargin. Yes, I know the preview here at Amazon does not show you much, but this little book will inspire you, make you think about life, and is a wonderful little gift to a friend or loved one. It is also fine for children. I like "Tomorrow," "Blue Day" (perfect for friends feeling sad), and "Friends to the End." I love this author work and if he is reading this, thank you.

This book is a cute and wise display of every facet of friendship. It covers not only the fun and intimate rewards of friends, but also those areas that rub us raw and make us want to go running away screaming. Doing so with the marvelous pictures captures the savory moments and makes beautiful light of the joy in long-standing friends.

I bought this for an entire circle of friends as momentos for whom I wanted something very special to capture the depth we had just gained with each other in working through difficulty and refinement with each other. It was absolutely perfect as a treasure gift.

You will love this book, and the pictures will leave you roaring with laughter, yet cooing with sentiment.

I bought this book for a dear friend of mine as a special hug. I loved the book so much I kept the first copy for me and ordered more for all my friends around the country. This is a must buy for friends who love animals and friends.

I ordered this book to give to a friend as a hostess gift when I visit her next month.
The subtitle of the book is "The True Value of Friendship." I somehow cannot associate the caption that, "Great friends cannot be manufactured in a laboratory by an evil genius," as being a factor of the value of friendship. Yes; it's meant to be clever and possibly funny, but it's just not my kind of humor. Some of the animals are dressed in costumes, such as pigs in grass skirts or a dog wearing glasses at a computer, and other dogs wearing clothes that may be pajamas. (A matter of individual taste, of course.) Near the end of the book are a dozen or so very negative things about "friends" who aren't really friends, such as bullies, drama queens, or those who are unreliable. Had I been the author or the editor, I would have omitted those pages and focused on the positive. The photos aren't great quality, and unrealistic color tints don't help, either.
At the same time as purchasing this book, I also purchased FRIENDS FOREVER, by Anne Rogers Smyth. Had I been shopping in a bookstore and looked at both books, I would have chosen FRIENDS FOREVER and not both. (See my review of the other book, if you're interested.) I would not purchase FRIENDS TO THE END again, and it will not be a gift for my friend, as previously planned.

I had the hardcover edition and just loved it. Beautiful photos (black and white) and just very neat overall.

As a gift to clients, I ordered the paperback version of this book. Well, the photos in this edition are no longer black and white. They've been edited with some cheap looking Warhol treatment and selective color ... just awful. I returned every single one and will be ordering the (twice as expensive) hardcover instead.

This book was a joy to read with both of my dearest friends. We all got more than a few good laughs at some of the pictures and captions. I would recommend this book as a gift for a good friend.
