Using quotes across place, time, and culture, this book includes salient and seminal chapters on Identity, Longing and Belonging, Boundaries, and more, including three case studies that explore primary friendships within the author’s life. Using examples from literature, poetry, film, and music,Dr. Yalowitz brings deeper understanding about building stronger, healthier, and sustainable friendships.


My Review


Maintaining Friendships is a Rather Complicated Feat. Personally, the last year allowed me time to examine friendship and important relationships in a new light. While a year plus of COVID restrictions gave many of us time to reflect and re-evaluate our lives--the need and longing for close friendships and relationships became a constant factor in our days. Reflections on the Nature of Friendship takes such an in-depth look at friendships--and the many cultural, personal, psychological, sociological, practical, and real-world factors that play into the development and maintenance of the relationships we hold. Readers are taken on quite an in-depth journey through the nature of friendships--with many opportunities for personal reflection and "soul searching" throughout the pages.  


Reflections on the Nature of Friendship Offers Powerful Insights and Real-World Suggestions for Readers.  Despite the complicated nature of our relationships--the author does a fascinating job putting all of the moving parts into perspective. Presenting a well-balanced blend of research, case studies, and thought-provoking selections of quotes, poetry, creative arts examples, and reflections points for readers allows the author to create a handy self-help book full of insights and suggestions for readers to draw upon as they build, maintain--and even improve the many friendships and relationships in their lives.


Would I Recommend Reflections on the Nature of Friendship by Daniel Cantor, Yalowitz, Ed.D? I wish I had discovered this book years ago! I would definitely recommend this book to anyone seeking the tools and knowledge to develop and sustain stronger interpersonal relationships. I think this is the perfect read for adults navigating changing friendships in our changing times. I think the book is handy for parents seeking to help young adults and teens learn to create and maintain meaningful experiences in a world that makes "connections" easy and constant--but, not necessarily meaningful.
