Format: Paperback
This book presents a very compelling case for spending the time it takes to develop true, deep friendships. We live in poverty without friends but like any other riches, they take work to acquire. It is not easy in this skate-along world but John Cuddeback made me want to really work on the friendships that I have. This book is a road map for having and keeping true friends.

What is the value of friendship? What do you look for in a friend? How is friendship beneficial to you? These are a some of the basic yet important questions that are answered in this clear straightforward practical guide. Loaded with jewels of wisdom from the world's most important philosophers, this book contains the reasons why we want to, and should, achieve friendship or why its in our best interest, and society as a whole. Typically Mom never gave us the reason why we should perform the actions required to acheive quality relationships but once you read this and learn why, it will in turn make the participation and acheivement of true friendship MUCH simpler. Isn't that the point? Mom would be proud.

In the past five years or so when teaching leadership, I always tell my students to read some thinkers like John Cuddeback, especially his books as they contain quotable references from other great thinkers. This book on Friendship: the Art of Happiness I recommended as it has lessons and thoughts much as if one is reading the book of Proverbs in the bible. I tells my students that it is better to be those persons who controlled their tempers than those that conquor cities. (Proverbs 16:32) Better to allow others to praise you than yourself (Proverbs 27;1-2) and as a leader learn to listen to others , even those you feel are inferior,... do not worry about the specks in their eyes when you have a board in your own;remove yours and really try to see the other person's point of view (Matthews 7:1-5). Without question, Cuddeback's books are those you always keep as guides for being a better leader and a happier person. Errol D. Alexander
