Our world has diluted the meaning of friendship, but the reality is, there’s nothing like the sustaining strength of true-blue, forever friends. Still, many people are convinced that they ll never find such lifelong connections or that they don t need them.

His eight principles for building the very best kind of friendship, along with his shared experiences within his own friendships (including mistakes he’s made), will move every listener to aspire to deeper connections and to stay the course when challenges arise. Townsend’s simple but profound concepts are sure to transform listeners relationships and keep them from missing out on one of life’s greatest and most essential joys: the joy of having a best friend.
