A growing body of recent research says that friendship is a key to health, happiness, and long life. Yet our culture is so obsessed by romance, marriage, and dating relationships that not much attention is paid to practicing the art of friendship.

So, what makes a good friend? Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott offer insights on the traits of real, lasting friendship. Based on their popular class on building better relationships, they show how good friends make time, keep secrets, speak the truth, forgive faults, remain faithful, laugh easily, celebrate success, and pray for one another.
